THANK YOU!

A big thank you from Enviro Glenorchy to all those who helped with the clean-up– surprisingly there wasn’t too much rubbish and we think that’s because there are a lot of good people in Glenorchy who are picking up rubbish on their regular walks!

So probably a big shout out to all of Glenorchy for taking such pride in our environment!

RIDING LESSONS

Our Children's beginner Riding lessons have been such a hit that we will continue next term! We have had a fantastic response with 16 riders, even 2 kiddies coming all the way from Queenstown. Our riders are all growing in confidence and doing so well. With more daylight hours and hopefully a bit warmer weather we will be able to move more group lessons to after school with just a half day of lessons on Saturdays from Mid August.

If you are interested in signing up for our next 6 week block drop me an email info@glenorchypeaks.com

RIDING HELMETS SAFETY TESTING?

To all horse riders in Glenorchy:

Regulations and safety requirements in NZ are changing on riding helmets.

A locally known, Dunedin based rider Desiree Bond, who has done a lot of research with riding helmets in the NZ market, would like to come up to Glenorchy around Queens Birthday weekend with a supply of helmets and offer fittings and choices to the Glenorchy riding community. 

She would just charge 10.00 to do a professional fitting (to help cover travel costs from Dunedin).

As there are quite a few children riding in the district and also adults, this could be a great opportunity to upgrade. 

“You can mend broken bones but you can’t unscramble brains!” 

Nothing is set in concrete as we need to see if there was enough support for Desiree to come.

Please let us know if you would be interested on vladka@truetravel.co.nz or info@high-country-horses.co.nz
