Fred Fisher's Light Rein Horses Blog
A Great Honor
We have a huge announcement to make! Our own amazing trainer, Fred Fisher, has attained the highest honor the American Quarter Horse Association (the largest breed association in the world) can bestow upon a trainer, that of AQHA Professional Horseman! This distinctive title is only earned by the elite few who provide service with the highest degree of integrity, and who agree to live by the https://www.aqha.com/code-of-ethics. An applicant must also be endorsed by two of his clients, two current AQHA Professional Horsemen, and an AQHA National Director! We are very proud to announce that Fred has been accepted into this elite organization of trainers. It is truly a great honor.

Some may question why we are remaining open for business during these uncertain times with the COVID-19 pandemic. For those who are wondering why, or do not agree with our position, below is a partial copy of Arizona Governor Ducey's Executive Order prohibiting the closure of essential services. The areas underlined in red confirm that in accordance with this order, we are being considered an "Essential Service". We will continue to monitor for any changes and will remain open for business until such time as changes mandate that we must close. For those considering whether or not to take riding lessons during this time, please be assured that social distancing of at least 6 feet is easily attained while riding horses in an arena, even during group lessons. Our group lessons will take place in groups of 10 or less. We also offer private lessons, and all lessons take place in our private arena, used only by ourselves and our clients. Rest assured that we are taking measures to prevent the spread of the virus while continuing to offer a fun outdoor recreational activity and learning experience, so needed during this time of school and work closures. Golf courses and other outdoor activities which offer social distancing are also remaining open. We are doing our best to do our part and will continue to do so.
