Our barn does camps throughout the summer and boys got in on the action! Ok, Winifred and Lucifer were not used as camp ponies (cause frankly I don’t want to kill any children!) but they did get a fun visit from my friends’ kids. I finally convinced my friends, N and J, to enroll their 3 kids and I, of course, had to come out to see them and introduce them to the boys.
The camp was a 4-day camp where the kids get to ride every day, learn to groom, do fun crafts, and on the last day they participate in a horse show. For the 3 of them it was their first time riding and, wow, was I impressed by them! I missed their 1st day but I was there for their 2nd and I would not have guessed that it was their 2nd time in the saddle. I thought I might have been biased but even TS commented that she was impressed too!
E was only able to come for 2 days of the camp because he had basketball camp that overlapped so he missed the horse show. 😦 J and A did great though! J won best posting trot and A won best 2-point! The girls did SO good!
I am trying to convince N and J to get the girls in lessons! I am even enticing them with Margarita Mondays during the beginner lesson! I know that I don’t have any kids in the lesson but I love the parents (and that lesson has some of my favorite kiddos in it) so I go and hang out. Stef makes the BEST margaritas! Hey, don’t judge me! LOL
