HIRING!

Hey Raynham Riders,

Raynham Stables is hiring! We are looking for the following positions:

Weekday Barn Staff:  We are looking for a hard-working, enthusiastic adult to help in the barns 8:30am - 4pm, Mondays to Fridays. We can be flexible with the hours if needed and would be happy with two or three part-time staff to split the days. If you are interested, please contact Nikki at info@raynhamstables.com to discuss. It's a great workout (no more gym membership required!) and you can't beat being outdoors and working with horses :)

Weeknight Tack-up Help and Weekend Barn Staff:  We are looking for hard-working, enthusiastic teens to help evening and weekend riders tack up, night chores and weekend barn chores. If you are interested, please fill out and submit this application form.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

September 2016 - June 2017 Lesson Registration

Hey Raynham Riders!

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted, life at the farm is go, go, go as usual!  I have split the registration form up by group lessons and private lessons this year in an attempt to simplify creating the schedule.  Please let me know if you have any questions about how to submit your form.

As in previous years, please provide me with AS MANY OPTIONS as possible.  Making the schedule work for all of our riders, horses and instructors is incredibly difficult and having flexibility for times is the only thing that makes it a bit easier!  If you have prefered times, please let me know in the comments sections and I will do my best.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone back at the barn!

Royal Winter Fair Tickets - Saturday, November 5th!

Hey Raynham Riders!

I know it's super early, but we have to reserve our Royal Winter Fair tickets now in order to be able to get group tickets.  There is a new company handling the ticket sales so unfortunately the price has also increased.   This years' tickets are as follows:


Green tickets:  $54.00 + $7.00 processing fee = $61.00 
Blue tickets: $49.50 + $7.00 = $57.00

Tickets include all-day admission to the fair in addition to admission to the evening show at 7pm on Saturday, November 5th. 

In order to be able to book the block of tickets, they have to be paid for by next week.  If you are interested, please email info@raynhamstables.com ASAP and let me know how many tickets you would like and which section (blue or green).  Payment can be made by cash, cheque or e-Transfer.

It's going to be a fantastic day/night!  Can't wait to fill up a section with blue and yellow again this year :)

Summer Lesson Scheduling!

Hey Raynham Riders!


Wow, it’s hard to believe the school year is almost over! We’d like to thank all of our terrific students and staff for a fantastic year. We hope we will see everyone at the barn this summer; details on summer lesson scheduling are below. All the classes are individual bookings so even if you can only come for a few classes, you won’t be as rusty in September! Don’t forget fall lesson registration opens August 1st on the website.

See you in the barn!


- Nikki, Lindsay & Caryn



Summer Lesson Details!

As in past years, we book summer lessons separately from the September – June schedule as everyone’s lives are so hectic in the summer! We will be using the online scheduler again this summer to make scheduling easier and more flexible for everyone. Simply pick the dates and times that work for you on the online scheduler and pay only for the classes you can attend. The scheduler also allows you to book recurring lessons so you do not have to schedule each class individually if you are able to come the same time each week. The scheduler does not allow bookings less than 24 hours out so don’t forget to book in advance! We are closed Sundays during July & August so that the school horses still get a day off each week. If you have any issues, please let me know!

Payment:
There will be two options for payments:

  1. Credit Card - Pay for lessons online through the scheduler when booking
  • Group Lessons  = $52.50
  • Private Lessons = $67.50
  1. Cash, Cheque or e-Transfer – If you prefer to pay by cash, cheque or e-Transfer, let me know BEFORE booking.  I will invoice you for a package and send you a coupon code to enter so the scheduler knows you have already paid.  This will also save you the online payment-processing fee.
  • Package of 8 Group Lessons = $420.00
  • Package of 8 Private Lessons = $540.00
