Saddle up and let's ride down the trail of tales or tails.

Getting paperwork ready for the open house. I have a good helper here.

The barn was covered in clumps of horse hair (wonder why – shedding season) so my helpers amused themselves while waiting for people to show up to the open house.
Much cleaner when done. Such good people hang around with me.

The purpose of open house is to encourage people to come out and visit and find out more about the school and – possibly sign up for lessons.

I do this in May just before school is out and students and families are kind enough to come out and help me.

The three in front below are three of my kids and they took over as tour guides. All the feedback from the visitors was very positive regarding the information they shared.

When these kids started taking lessons with me, they did not have the confidence to handle a tour and talk to prospective students.

Giving the lowdown about Butch with Drafty in waiting.

When they had down time, the girls saw water troughs that needed to be rinsed and filled and did that voluntarily.
