Did you know we have fresh farm eggs?! We have WAYYY too many for us to keep up with. $4 a dozen.

$3 a dozen if you bring an egg carton. Text Olivia the morning of your lesson and she will have them at the barn for you!

☀️Happy last day of summer! ☀️
We are so excited to roll in to the new school year with our riders! 📚

Since school is just starting the barn will be closed from Thursday (August 26th) through Monday (September 6th), (no lease rides from August 26th to September 1st, can come on the 2nd) this also gives all our amazing ponies/horses off after a hot summer!
Keep an eye out for the fall schedule, Olivia will reach out before end of the week with it.

See you then and good luck to all students on their first day of school!

What an amazing day today!

These girls did amazing today, I couldn’t be more proud of them, their drive, passion, support to each other, and determination showed 100%. Every single one of them came out on top today and made their barn proud. We have an amazing group of young riders! Great job today girls and THANK YOU parents for all you do, couldn’t do it without you all. 🐴 Feel free to post pictures in the comments!

Hi there barn family! Alex here, asking for some help. As I'm sure many of you know, Windsor is my very best friend. You'll never find a more trustworthy, honest horse (and his tricks are really cute). Recently, I've been worried that Windsor has ulcers--painful lacerations in his tummy. They make riding hard for him, and he's more prone to colic, a potentially life-threatening condition. Windsor needs a vet visit to see where his ulcers are located so we can come up with a proper treatment plan. I've worked to raise as much money as I can, but medical bills are expensive, and I'm worried I don't have enough to help my buddy. So, I'm selling some barn merch! You can get stickers, bags, bottles, and more with pictures of your favorite horses on them, all drawn by me and shipped right to your door! All of the profits from these sales will go towards Windsor's vet bills. I thank you all so much for reading this, and I know we can get this horse feeling good again! He has so much to offer the riders at this barn.

Please check this site regularly for new updates; I plan on adding art of all the barn horses over the next day or two. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I am also capable of providing folks with custom artwork of their own pets! If anyone would like to donate towards Windsor's vet costs, my Venmo is @prabbeli.

Much thanks and love to you all!

Cali is a one in a million, you don’t find ponies this amazing ever. She is a favorite to many and adored by so many! ❤️

🐴 I was so bad about pictures today...but it was an AMAZING day at Hunt Club Farms Jumper Show! I was so impressed and proud of every single rider. Some may not have gotten ribbons, but they accomplished something new today and pushed themselves (I had tears in my eyes as one rider completed her first ever 2’3” round at a show with total confidence after a few shows of being too nervous to complete that height).

We had several amazing ribbons though competing against a ton of riders and some amazing rounds with no faults from riders.

Today I was reminded why I love my job and why I work tirelessly at it. These riders went out today and worked so hard on and off the horses and encouraged each other from start to end!

Way to go riders (Alina, Alex, Lauren, Rebeca, Jenny, Savanah, Charlotte, Zoe), ponies (I may be biased but my ponies are amazing and deserve the world!!) AND parents (you guys rocks and without you none of this would be able to happen)!!!

Congratulations to the Whyard family on the purchase of Skittles! The bond that this pony and this girl (Savanah) have, has been incredible from day one!
Savanah has shown nothing but dedication from the beginning (she even gave up all other activities). This rider has been riding for less than a year and is already proving to be an absolute amazing rider. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this pair! 🐴

⭐️ February rider of the month is Audrey Kielhorn and I'm 11 years old ⭐️

Here is a little about Audrey! Audrey has impressed me so much over the past year with her confidence and growth. She has overcome some holdbacks with confidence and showing that nothing is impossible, she even rides one of the hardest horses in the barn.

Years riding?
I have been riding for 3 years. I started at the original Serene Acres with Olivia's mom, Pam. I have been back with Olivia for the past 2 years after a short break and I'm really excited to be there and see where things go as I continue to become a better rider.

Favorite horse?
My favorite horse is Landon. I love him because he is fun to ride and he's very funny. He also reminds me of my older brother because he struggles to stand still.

Favorite thing to do in lessons?
My favorite thing to do in lessons is jumping. Although I sometimes get nervous before a big jump, I really enjoy the rush of adrenaline when completing the jump and the confidence I get when when a jump is finished!

What horses mean to her?
Horses mean a lot to me. Frequently the barn has been my happy place. I really enjoy interacting with all the horses. They make me laugh because each one has a distinct personality and are all very silly and smart! Olivia is a great instructor and I can't wait to keep learning new things.

Goals for the upcoming year?
I really want to improve my confidence as a rider and see where things go this year!

When you grow up with this lady as your horse trainer it is inevitable that you take on character traits like her!! What a fun 6 years it has been and here is to her remaining high school years riding.
Is Serene Acres going to the international Horse Show again this year?
