Here is an unusual chance to take weekly Cavaliere Classes. Because we didn’t run them in July, we’ll be running the classes every Saturday afternoon from August 16th through September 6th. What could be better than Horsemanship, Riding and Swordplay in the balmy August evenings at Red Colt? This is the perfect time to brush up on your skills before Carosella which is coming up September 12-14th!
