Cross-Country Schooling

Schooling at Waredaca

thursdaystickyIn addition to an energetic Activities Calendar of clinics, seminars and events, we also offer these two opportunities for schooling on the farm.   Cross Country schooling is available almost year round with the exception of the 4 weeks preceding our three recognized events and during the winter months when the footing is predictably uncertain.  During the summer months, we offer 6 casual and popular summer schooling evenings, now sponsored by our own Waredaca Brewing Company, offering discounted beverages on Thursday summer schooling show evenings.  Tab each for more useful details with your planning.
