Blanketing Info:
It’s not quite time yet for those blankets, sheets, and hoods, etc. to make an
appearance. However, when it’s time, here are a few things to remember:
♦
Put your horse’s name on ALL items of clothing in an obvious place (big bold print, permanent mark
or metal name tags). This makes things a lot easier for the guys at home and at shows, in order to
keep the right clothes with the right horse, as many wear the same size and color.
♦
Make sure everything fits correctly! Make sure all leg straps, belly bands and chest straps are secure
and fit properly.
♦
There will be a monthly blanketing fee added to your board bills for each horse, as this is a very
time consuming and dirty job!
♦
All horses in the barn under the lights MUST be blanketed as we don’t allow them to grow their
winter coats.
♦
Remember, it is not mandatory for your horse to be blanketed - it is your choice as they can cope
without blankets. It is only a requirement if they reside in the barn under the lights!
BARN MANNERS/REMINDERS:
There appears to be a need to highlight some important reminders. Please see me if you have any
questions or concerns... PLEASE be respectful of the following:
LESSONS:
• If you are going to sit and watch, as well as chit-chat with friends, please keep the noise levels down so that the
person taking a lesson (and paying for it) can hear their lesson.
• Do NOT interrupt Jackie during lessons for “silly” questions that can wait until after lessons are done and/or
are non-emergency issues. You can always leave Jackie a note in the tack room “mailbox” or on the clipboard.
• If you are riding and you are NOT in the lesson, the lesson-rider has the priority/right-of-way in the arena
space. Please stay out of their way and do not park your horse in front of the bleachers while you get a drink or
chit-chat.
LIGHTS:
Arena lights MUST be turned off by 8:00PM. Turn them off as you cool down your horse so you don’t forget.
“VISITING HOURS”
As you know, you are welcome to visit your horses at any reasonable time, including on holidays. However, some
of you are pushing the limits! Please be polite and do not visit after 9:00PM nightly!
TEXTING/PHONE CALLS:
• Please do NOT call/text me before 7:00AM or after 8:30PM unless there is an emergency.
• Also, while you are riding, lunging, hand-walking or grooming, please don’t talk or text. It’s not only
dangerous because you are not concentrating on your horse, but it is also distracting to the other riders around
you. Please leave cell phones in your trunks!
THANK YOU! ~ Jackie

Gearing up for Show Season...
Entry Help Sessions:
These are where Jackie will be able to answer any
questions, help you with your entry forms and/or
Understand the fees, etc. The pre-scheduled group Help
Sessions are free. If you can’t make the group time, you
will need to schedule your own private time with Jackie.
DO NOT interrupt other people’s lessons for help with
your entries. Individual/private “Help Sessions” will be
billed as a lesson.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU:
When entries are due, please be sure to bring copies of
registration papers, membership cards, credit cards or
checkbooks, parental signatures and your completed
entry forms!
Memberships:
To participate in the above Arabian shows, you will need to
have current memberships with the following:
USEF (calendar year Dec. 1-Nov. 30)
AHA (valid 1 year from join date, so check your expiration)
VSAHA (local club - you can also join AHA through this)
If you do not want to join, you will need to pay non-member
fees. However, once you get to Regionals and beyond, you
MUST become a member!)
Coggins Testing:
All horses entering the shows at WestWorld will need to
have a negative Coggins Test completed. Only a vet can
test for Coggins. The test (valid for one year) will be
scheduled by Jackie with Dr. Dan ASAP for those horses
that require it.
Dear Royal Salute Clients:
Please be advised that with the beginning of November now here, there will be as many as 6 new
horses arriving this month. As a result, many lesson horses and “antiques” will be moved to the pony
pens. This means there will be horses on the south side of the arena.
Also, there will be changes to the turn-out schedule in order to accommodate all the turn-out needs.
I will be adding another turn-out “shift” from 2:00-4:00PM.
Finally, the weather is meant to cool off this weekend (finally!), so the horses that are under the lights in
the barn (not growing winter coats) will need their sheets. Please bring them and place them on the
strings by your horse’s stall doors.
Thank you!
~ Jackie
