Well another month has passed and we are getting that much closer to summer!

We would like to welcome our newest boarder Jen with her mare Bella to the barn; they moved in at the beginning of May.

Big news for Imperial Stables! We are the 1st COR (Certificate of Recognition) certified equestrian centre in Canada! We are so proud of this accomplishment and shows our commitment to health and safety. To give you a little background on the program, it is through Worksafe BC and rewards businesses that have a health and safety program that goes above and beyond legislation and regulations. We worked with FARSHA (Farm and Ranch Safety and Health Association) as our certifying partner; they have been a great resource for us as we worked towards our certification this past year.

Simon and Bernie have also redone the round pen footing, so please test it out next time you need to lunge your horse and let us know how it is.

We should be able to enjoy the outdoors all summer now that the sprinkler system is up and running. Hopefully we get drier weather soon so we can test it out.

Just a reminder that the board increase is effective June 1st.

As per the notices posted around the barn we will be having a BBQ on June 30th starting at 5:30pm. Everyone is welcome and promises to be lots of fun. Vera’s Burgers will be catering the event, providing burgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers as well as salads and drinks. There will also be music and pony rides for the children.

Tickets are only $10.00 beforehand and $15.00 the day of the BBQ.

Please see Angela to get your tickets.

 

Thanks

Imperial Stables Management Team

The indoor ring will be closed for maintenance and cleaning next week. The ring will be close Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am – 12pm. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. The outdoor will remain open during these hours. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Everyone welcome to our BBQ on June 30th, there will be music, food catered by Veras Burgers and pony rides! The BBQ will start at 5:30. Tickets are $10.00 per person and can be purchased through Angela, they are on sale now.  Tickets include burger (veggie burger available), salads and drinks.

We would like to start turning the horses out in the field on May 15th weather permitting! 🙂 Just a reminder to everyone that you are allowed to use the fields to turn your horses out so you can gradually build them up to 1 – 1.5 hours a grass turnout. As we will be rotating them every 2 hours we want their stomachs to be adjusting to the rich spring grass. 

Imperial Stables is the first small business to become COR(certificate of Recognition) certified! This is a great accomplishment, becoming COR certified requires alot of dedication to our health and safety program. We had to complete a health and safety audit, which we had to pass with a minimum of 80%. This audit required documentation review, staff interviews. We are extremely excited about this accomplishment and continue to strive to provide a healthy and safe facility.
