March 15th C.O.R.E. Clinic almost completely full!!

Next weekend’s C.O.R.E. Rider Clinic at the farm is almost completely full! The afternoon mounted sessions are FULL and there are only a few spots left in the morning un-mounted group session. If you were thinking about giving these clinics a try, but weren’t sure, coming to the un-mounted session for only $35 is a great way to start and get introduced to CORE principles!!  You can email Erinn at: to sign-up today.

ALSO don’t forget that AUDITING IS FREE & Welcomed for the Mounted Sessions (beginning at 10:30am) Come out and bring your friends! Light refreshments will be provided.

Friday & Saturday FULL for Laine Ashker Clinic; Spots open on Sunday

We wanted to let everyone know that Friday, Feb 20th & Saturday, Feb. 21st are FULL for the Laine Ashker Clinic. However, we do still have a handful of spots available on Sunday the 22nd. Email today to sign-up!  *Also, don’t forget that auditing is FREE and encouraged!* We ask that you bring your own chair and lunch if you plan to stay all day.  Light refreshments will be available.

Feb 15th CORE Clinic Cancelled due to weather

**IMPORTANT UPDATE**: Sadly, we have decided to cancel the Feb. 15th CORE clinic due to weather. Here at Playland, we put our horses first and we realize it’s not fair to them (or their riders!) to have to work in single-digit temperatures and negative degree windchills. We invite everyone to come out to our March 15th clinic, and thank you for your understanding! You can also schedule a private CORE Rider lesson with Glenda in the meantime! Contact for more details.

C.O.R.E. Rider Clinics: Feb 15th & March 15th

We have not one, but TWO C.O.R.E. Rider Clinics scheduled!
The first will be held on Sunday, February 15th and the second on Sunday, March 15th. These interactive clinics feature un-mounted & mounted riding sessions which allow participants to explore all aspects of their riding and become more aware of what they are doing and how their horse responds to it. Also, auditing is FREE and welcomed for the mounted lessons, so bring your friends!! We hope to see you all at the farm in a couple weeks!For more info & to sign-up, email Erinn at:

Fire at the farm house

As some of you may already know, there was a fire at the main farm house over the weekend, which resulted in a total loss of home for Glenda’s parents. As a result of this, we are sadly postponing this weekend’s CORE Rider Clinic until further notice. We want to thank everyone for all of the support and well wishes we have received. More than anything, we are most thankful that Glenda’s parents made it out without any injuries and are okay.
