FOCUS SESSIONS MAY 28 - JUNE 2

You will notice on the calendar that the week of May 28-June 2 have no regularly scheduled lessons, but instead you will want to schedule a Focus Session. Focus Sessions are for students that have ridden with us within the last 6 months. Every 4-6 weeks you can schedule 1-hour one-on-one lessons that are all about YOU! We will focus on skills you've been trying to practice or get better at, focus on your partnership with your horse or pony, focus on practicing your skills on a different horse or pony, challenge yourself with higher level movements you've been wanting to learn, or just have the chance to ride if you haven't been on the schedule in a while. The opportunities are endless! Schedule your 1-hour Focus Session now! $50/session, Work Program discount accepted. Have a Prepaid Lesson Package? Just pay an additional $10 for the session and use a lesson from your package. Email Tracie at Tracie@keevfarm.com to schedule your Focus Session now! Come a little early to your Focus Session to prep your horse and be ready for your lesson at your scheduled time. Help will be available in the barn for those that need it. Below are the times available for Focus Sessions.The same horse will not have back-to-back lessons, so schedule your lesson first if you are limited by days or times. Focus Sessions are first come, first serve.

Rainy Day Lessons

posted April 2018

As a business specializing in Youth Horsemanship, there are a plethora of skills and topics that never get discussed when we are so busy practicing in-hand training skills and riding with our horses. At Keev Farm we are turning lemons into lemonade and continuing to work with the students despite the foul weather. The only exceptions would be the rare extreme wind or lightning when the students and horses might be a little on edge. So, if your student is up for it, send them rain or shine and we will cover topics in the barn with our horses that will make your student even more of a caring, knowledgeable and independent equestrian!

Keev Farm Program Changes

March 2018

As most of you know, in February I went to Florida to meet with a gal I love to learn dressage from, Karen Rohlf. She's an amazing and fun trainer. Karen also consults with horse businesses around the world to help them make this challenging industry successful and self-fulfilling. Like many industries that turn hobbies into careers, you don't usually get both financial success and a self-fulfilling career. I was so excited to be in Florida and was inspired by Karen's experiences and business savvy. I am excited to expand and grow Keev Farm's programs and add to the experience your children already have here. As you can imagine, all the changes cannot come at once, but I'm excited to add changes and new programs a little at a time.

     Longer Lessons: It is a priority of me to have my students learn horsemanship skills in the barn and become caring and independent equestrians. I want to allow enough time in the barn before and after exercise to care for the pony and tack. As some of you have already experienced, I've begun scheduling lesson times at 1.5 hours for most of the students. I also want Keev Farm to be a fun and safe learning environment where the kids can learn from each other's skills and have fun. In my experience, this environment is best created in small group lessons. I'll continue to utilize my awesome helpers to keep beginners safe and comfortable in the arena and barn.

     Work Program: I want to continue to have my more advanced students learn skills outside of their regularly scheduled lessons while helping with tasks that support Keev Farm as a business. I will be diligent about providing tasks each month that the business needs support on and that students invited into our Work Program can sign up for. The program will be morphing with time so that working students can easily track their work hours to apply appropriate discounts to their lessons, have the extra time they are so eager to have at the barn, and the students and business will be mutually rewarded for the extra time and effort that goes into the program.
