****Please Note the Ranch is on Illinois.  If you type Double N Ranch into your mapping program, it takes you to the right place.  If you type in the address, it may or may not.*********

Site opens at 9:30 am.
Lessons will start at 10:30
Group drills will start at the conclusion of lessons

Friendly to green horses.  New to horses?  This is a great, supportive environment to come try things.   Green horses and beginning riders are welcome to participate.

There is no fee to attend.  If you bring an equid, there is a $10 Haul in fee payable to Double N Ranch.

We are trying something a little different this year, reviving an older practice format.

The first part of the day will be 20-30 minute semi-private riding lessons with Else working on horsemanship and equitation topics.   Lesson start times mean tacked up and ready to ride.

If you would like a lesson, please contact Else.  You are responsible for arranging for a horse or mule.  That can mean arranging for rentals, bringing your own, or asking one of the horse owners in advance if you can borrow one of theirs. 

Later as a group, we will work on games, open sparring and other activities.  Group times will be announced about a week before the practice, once lesson times are set.  

Check out our FB page or email the EqMIC for the most up to date information.
