Stable Management Week at NSEC


As everyone knows Sunday March 3rd is our first show of the season at NSEC, which marks the first Stable Management Week of the season!

March 4th to 10th will be Stable Management Week for ALL group school horse lessons at NSEC (this includes Adult classes as the instructors see fit).

For those who ride 2 or 3 times during the week or anyone who may have schedule a make up for a lesson previous to this week, please contact me ASAP to reschedule any extra lessons to a later date.

If you cannot make your regularly scheduled lesson and cannot do a make up during the Stable Management Week, there will be a miss charge applied to your account (as per NSEC policy. If you are unfamiliar with any of our policies please visit http://www.wecreateriders.com/lessonpolicies.html to review our policies).

Stable Management Week is very important to all students in order to put practical horsemanship knowledge into practice as well as review safety and ground manner training (all very important in the horse world). If you miss Stable Management you could also be missing valuable information that will be needed for testing at the end of the season in order to advance in level according to EC Canada Standards.

All students will meet their instructor in the office for the week of March 4th to 10th.

Winsum Schooling Show

North Shore Dressage had a super fun day at the Winsum Schooling Show last weekend.

Congratulations to Owen and Dino who had two very strong tests- despite Dino's over excitement! Good riding Owen!

Also congratulations to Denise and her horse Sashay who placed 2nd and 4th with a very respectable 66% score. Not bad for the first time out!

What a great start to the year!

Get Well Soon Mandy!


As some of you have heard already; this morning one of our instructors, Mandy Cragg, fell from her horse while riding in the lower arena. 

Mandy was rushed to the hospital and treated swiftly and with great care. She is currently stabilized and will be in the hospital for the next week. 

While we don’t know what caused the fall, we do know that Mandy and her family will be in our thoughts and that everyone at NSEC wishes her a fast and healthy recovery.

Feb 8th Update: Mandy is doing very well. She is being treated for a serious concussion and a non serious face injury that will heal quickly. She is not yet taking visitors, but her family will let us know as soon as she is ready for people to visit.

Feb 13th Update: Mandy has been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home. We expect to see to her back teaching within the next month!
