Re: [WestKingdomEQ] Western Riding Lessons
- Hi Everyone:I'd just like to mention that $35 for a lesson is really a great price, especially when you are using someone else's horse. Riding different horses is a great way to learn.For a comparison on prices I pay $45-$200 an hour for my lessons depending on what trainer I am working with. Add into that gas, trailer, time, tack, board etc. and you'll know why horses keep me broke! Buying a horse is the cheapest part!So, I urge everyone who wants to learn to ride or just brush up on skills to take advantage of the lessons that have been offered on this list.Just my 8 hooves worth.Kind Regards,Sarah----- Original Message -----From: dcamvilleSent: Monday, December 01, 2003 8:32 AMTo: WestKingdomEQ@yahoogroups.comSubject: [WestKingdomEQ] Western Riding Lessons
As was mentioned before in a previous post we are setting up riding
lessons in Sunol, CA. between Fremont and Pleasanton.
The style of riding will focus on Western.
Lessons look to be $35.00 per session. You need to know how to tack
up a horse.
Lessons will be on Sundays.
ONCE WE GET A COMMITTED GROUP together we can negociate the price
down some. To do that we NEED a solid core group of interested people
who will commit to a once-per-month lesson.
We NEED to get feedback on the level of interest from the group.
We want to start these lesson this month...that way folks are ready
for the upcoming EQ practices and events!
Please chime in by THURSDAY DECEMBER 4, 2003 if you would like to be
part of this month's session.

Dear Sir Richard:
I am very interested in regular monthly Western
lessons, but would like to try one before I commit.
However, for most of the year Sundays may be a problem
for me. Right now, any Sunday from now till March
Crown, except for Dec. 14 (non-SCA commitment), Jan.
4, and Jan. 24, is fine. During tourney season,
though, I try to attend kingdom, Mists, and Cynaguan
events, and need to keep some weekends free for family
gatherings. If folks could meet on, say, Wednesdays
-- that would work much better for me.
I realize that for many of us only Sundays are free.
Would enough of us commit to have two sets of classes,
one on a weekday and one on Sunday?
I would like to participate in equestrian activities
in addition to, not instead of, SCA activities.
Respectfully, Kellyn Firesinger
