JULY 3-7.  and   JULY 10-14.   9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

12 Maximum Campers. Ages 7 to 15 

Get ready for a great week of Riding, Crafts, Water games, Fashion Photo Day and more RIDING!  

BRING:  A good Attitude, long pants, sturdy shoes/boots, pony tails/braids for long hair (I have helmets) and a sack lunch.  We have juice/water, pretzels, red licorice and Otter Pops all day long.  No candy necessary in their lunches.   

 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.     We are doing more drills and fun competitions.  If you’re concerned about the heat, we take care of that with water games and even riding in sprinklers.

PARKING:  First day, we’ll direct you to little road below by ring and Camp.  It goes thru to other road to my street.  Easypeasy.  Good way to enter when picking up as well…Take it slow to not scare animals.  That is where you’ll park for Friday Show Off Day as well.

Monday and Tuesday:  Get here, sign up, Sign Release Form, get your Camp Book and down on to the horses.      We Ride twice on these days, definitely.  Tuesday evening, Girls: 4-5 braids in hair to sleep in and wear under helmet for first ride on Wednesday.  Wild hair a must, for Wednesday.

Wednesday:  Ride first, Lunch, then Photo Dress Up Day….I have it all.  We’ve morphed into Steam Punk Elves. If you would like to volunteer to help with eyeliner, lipstick and hair…Thank you. I was primarily a professional photographer for much of my careers, so, you score.  This all takes time.  Sometimes we run a little late.

Thursday:  Ride first, (practicing what we’re going to do in Show Off performance), then Lunch then Water Wipe Out Day…Yes, I, the Queen Kay and my loyal Counselors, Wipe Out our Campsters with a royal slide and …well,… water.  Bring Bathing Suit or tight shorts to slide, flip flops and TOWEL.  We then get on the horses again, bareback pads, helmets (of course) and boots/shoes and ride in their bathing suits.

    Friday:  Show Off Day.  We ride first, then prepare the horses in a special artful way.  The parents and Friends come to enjoy a special ‘Show Off’ time of their Campers Riding and after,  All in the Camp will be showing off.  Parents arrive at 12:30,  for the SHOW.  The Riders are in groups to ride their horses.  You leave with wonderful memories, athletes, and a treasure pile of their crafts. OH! and fab photographs from Queen Kay.    

I, Queen Kay and my loyal COUNSELORS/RIDERS are really excited to start Camp.  It just gets better and better.
