Camper Update!

Hello Moms and Dads!

We've had a busy first few days of camp!  The girls have all settled in well and the weather has been great.  We have enjoyed delicious meals including Fruit Smoothies, Toad in a Hole, Chicken Caesar Wraps, Mexican Rice and Pasta.

We played pony games on the first day to get to know each other and so the instructors could assess everyone's riding level.  Then, first thing Monday morning campers were divided into their lesson groups and did their first lesson! Everyone has been riding well, the newer riders are mastering their posting trot, some of our returning campers did their first jump today and the older girls are polishing their dressage tests and have had a cross country lesson!

When not riding, we have also been spending a lot of time in the pool to stay cool.  This group of campers also loves making bracelets!  The horse treats we made yesterday were a huge hit with the ponies and today we made treat containers to store them in.  Our evenings programs so far have been a campfire and playing Man Hunt and tonight we're going to play Spotlight!

We are getting ready for Parent Show, 2:30pm on Friday.  See you then!
