NCEL Winter Finale news

From Celeste...
 
To MY Fabulous 7 --

    Congratulations you did it, girls!  You managed to hold onto our year end 1st place for the season!!  WOW!  Hats off to you and to your families for all of their support.
     We have all worked hard together and it has payed off.  Each of you contributed to our success which truly makes this a team victory -- the way it should be.  You are all amazing riders and deserve this recognition.  I couldn't be more proud of each of you.
     Thanks for all of your hard work -- so exciting to see it pay off.  
     Take lots of pictures at the banquet with your blue ribbons, trophies, etc., as I will be out of town at a family wedding, so will miss all of the NCEL fun.  I will be there with you in spirit.  Remember that it is at the Laurel Racetrack 5:00 - 8:00 pm, although you are welcome to go to the races beginning at 1:15, Sunday, April 2.
     On another note I will send out an email regarding spring lessons, times, fees, etc.  This coming weekend is the last extended session, separate from the spring session.  Details to come soon.  See you soon.
 
Enjoy your snow day,

Celeste G. McGee 
 
Finale info/ Banquet
 
Dear All,
   
     As most of you know NCEL has a year end banquet to wrap up our season and present individual and team ribbons. The event will be held at Laurel Racetrack on Sunday, April 2, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.  Tickets are $35 per person, and include buffet dinner.  You are welcome to arrive early to attend the races beginning at 1:15, at no additional charge.  All teams are required to give a head count and checks at the finale for whoever is planning to attend.  I will be out of town at a family wedding, so unable to attend, but hope that our entire team will be represented.  Please plan to let me know either Friday or Saturday about your family's attendance with an accompanying check payable to NCEL.  Thanks for your help in advance coordinating this.

About Waredaca's Lesson Program

Our students ride outside as often as possible and out of the enclosed ring, not only gaining vital skills necessary while riding in the open but also a sense of freedom and pleasure only gained from such an experience!

Waredaca offers riding lessons year round and at all levels. Students may choose from private, semi-private or group instruction and are also grouped according to age and current skills levels.  Lessons occur daily-afternoons and evenings and on weekends.

We provide quality English riding instruction for all ages and levels of experience that emphasizes safety, skills progression and enjoyment.  From the foundation-balanced seat, instructors further specialize in eventing and dressage. Our students and staff thrive as a partnership!

Many acres of woods, fields, and trails complement our excellent facilities of a two large outdoor riding rings, an indoor riding arena, and five levels of cross country jumping courses.   As confidence and abilities improve, the more advanced students may continue to compete in US Pony Club activities, unrecognized or ‘starter’ events, schooling evenings or US Equestrian Federation sanctioned events if so desired.

In addition to teaching, our staffs of professional instructors actively ride themselves, train horses, and supervise competing students on their mounts or WAREDACA horses.   They also stress the importance of respect and responsibility with the horses.   Lesson groups are determined by skills and experience.

Waredaca offers:

  • Adult Lessons: ages 16+ 
  • Children’s Lessons: ages 8-15
  • Pony Kids: ages 4-7
