Holiday Gifts

Let Shallowbrook help you with your holiday list.  We will be offering Shallowbrook fleece-lined jackets, saddle pads, zip-up sweatshirts, horse leases, gift certificates (including a lesson for the whole family) and more!  Order forms available soon!

Holiday Horse Leases

Experience a horse lease the week of school vacation (12/27-12/31).  A week lease entitles you or your child to be able to ride 4 times a week.  They would also be allowed to groom the horse everyday as well as feed the horse two times during that week (Shallowbrook provides the feed).  Horses are leased on a first come first serve basis.  Please contact your instructor for more information.

Shallowbrook Rated Horses Shows

We want to wish all of our Shallowbrook competitors LOTS of luck and great riding in their remaining shows for the 2010 horse show season.  Reminder that Shallowbrook is hosting two more shows on November 14th and 21st.  Come out and cheer on our riders as they qualify for the 2010 Connecticut Horse Shows Association Year-End Banquet and the Shallowbrook 5-Star Series.
