It was both a busy and exciting week here at PBRA with both a full session of camp and managing our very own June Tropical Show. We had an immensely successful show and I could not have done it without the support of Jenn Glosson, David Burton, Kelly Jones, Tom Matthews, Lexi DeBello and all of PBRAs students and parents. Thank you to all of my camp counsellors Allison Pearson, Reily Malt, and Haley Farber who put in not only time at camp, but stayed after to set courses and get ready for the show. I can’t wait to do it all again in July!
It’s also not to late to become a sponsor for our July 2016 Tropical Series! Still looking for a few division and event sponsors, if interested please contact Laura Bostwick at email@example.com. Thank you to all of our already generous sponsors, which can be found on our website at palmbeachridingacademy.com.
Attached is this week’s schedule. Please let me know if you cannot make your scheduled time ASAP so we may do our best to accommodate a different time. I will be out of town Thursday – Sunday doing wedding preparations, so please see Kelly or Lexi for any questions or concerns.
