October update

We had a busy summer recruiting and training volunteers.  Our Volunteer coordinator, Beth Murray has done a great job organizing and keeping track of all of our volunteers.  Beth also created our Volunteer handbook which can be viewed online www.heartsastride.org.  If you are interested in Volunteering please check our website for contact info and come on out to see us!!

We have 2 students in our Fall 2008 Session.  This class began as a 4 week session with 3 students.  Some of our students expressed the interest to continue riding so we decided to continue as long as the weather will allow.  We are working on a balanced seat and have begun to use reins.  To help practice turns we use change through the arena, ride through the arena as well as weaving through barrels. 

Thank you to our volunteers who act as horse handlers and sidewalkers. Without your help this class would not be possible. 



















As long as the weather holds up and we have at least 2 riders we will continue class. We have room for 2 additoinal riders, for a total of 4.

Our Directors are also currently visiting area schools and giving a brief presentation to better explain what we offer at H.E.A.R.T.s Astride.  We hope to have 2 school field trips before the end of November and book a few for spring.  These field trips offer the special education classes the chance to come visit us and ride a horse.
