Hey you all and Happy belated New Year. It truly is a blessing to be mailing out JAKES Club’s first 2022 Newsletter in February. Why you may ask? Because the Board of Directors, Founding families, Advisory Council are excited, believing for a blessed 2022, and want to get started!
To begin the New Year in February (during off season) JAKES Club will be offering the Volunteer Saddle Club (VSC) our “Barn & Bible” program. Bible Scriptures and the study of the Western Saddle will be the focus February – April one Thursday per month from 2-4pm in the office. The Equine Department has decided to use Western Saddles in 2022 programs as much as possible due to the age and well being of Luke and Numbers backs (protecting muscle/spine) and Micah’s youth. You probably noticed a picture of Matthew was not included above because our Lord Jesus found him a wonderful new family in Rush Hill, MO on December 24, 2021. Thank you Jesus! The whole transaction was a blessing and pictures have been posted on Flickr.
Continuing with our lineup for “Barn & Bible” we have guest speakers on the calendar in both March and April. Barb Allen (Founder/Advisory Council member) will be teaching the top line of the Western Saddle. Including the importance of a safe saddle fit and differentiate between saddle horns. Then in April JAKES Club’s “Barn & Bible” fun concludes with Jacob Perry (Founder/Equine Department Director) at the barn, weather permitting, teaching safe Western Saddle stirrup fit and the variety of stirrup uses. Praying for weather allowing 2022 enrolled VSC youth to test their new found knowledge.
Remember in April it will be time to enroll for both Therapeutic Saddle Club (TSC) and VSC programs beginning in May. As stated in the December newsletter all TSC riders will be required to submit JAKES Club’s Physician Release form. You may keep track of all the 2022 dates on www.JAKESClub.org “Calendar of Events”.
That is all for now. VSC families please contact Info@JAKESClub.org to enroll for upcoming February 24, 2022 “Barn & Bible”. Everyone please remember Isaiah 43:19“For I Am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”Amen!
Happy New Year everyone and Blessings!
