WoodWind Farm, a saddleseat riding facility, was established in 1980 by Bonnie Kittredge. WoodWind operates as a full service training facility and lesson program between two barns. Catering to all ages and skill sets, we are able to teach year round in our comfortable indoor facilities. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or just looking to try it out for the first time, we are eager to earn your business and introduce you to the incredible world of horses.
Horse show season is upon us!
Here is what we have coming up in March for all of Woodwind Farm family whether competing this show season or wanting to get some fresh air.
Saturday, March 19th we are traveling to the ASAW 2015 Year End Awards Banquet.
Sunday, March 20th is our “horse show prep” Woodwind Farm Showstoppers meeting. This is welcome to those who are competitively showing or to those who are just wondering what showing is all about.
From 12-1:30, we will be discussing hair, makeup, clothing and how to prepare for a horse show. From 2-3:30 we will be discussing what classes at horse shows mean, what the judge is looking for and mental preparation for a horse show. Time around these sessions will be available for riders and parents to discuss a show plan for 2016.
Sunday, April 3rd from 9:30-1P.M Alex will be holding a day of riding for those riders interested in getting some extra group riding practice before show season kicks off. All riders who can ride by themselves with one or more riders are welcome to attend! Space is limited!

Sunday, April 24th the Showstoppers and anyone else sign up are running/walking a 5k to raise money for the Main Stay Therapeutic Riding Program in Richmond, IL. This will be our second year participating in this run.
Sunday, May 1st is our Spring Barn Show! Talk to your instructor about signing up, how to prepare for it and what you will need. It is all good fun and all should join us!
