DSC04478DSC03831Summer camp was great again this year!  There were about 20 kids and it was a week of learning, riding and fun.  One of my favorite activities was when the kids had to carry a ball with a handle while they trotted and cantered on foot.  For some the ball DSC04142was weighted to one side so they could feel what it was like for a horse to have to carry a “bad” rider who wasn’t staying balanced.  Pool day was also a lot of fun.  Mrs. Mysyk always puts out a great spread of food for lunch and lets us invade their nice pool for a few hours to relax and cool off.

DSC04505Summer shows have started.  This past week was the Chagrin Valley Hunter Jumper Classic.  Emily, Faye, Antonia and Madison all showed.  They all rode well and had a good weekend.  It was nice to see old friends there as well.  The Grand Prix will be held there this coming Sunday, if you’ve never been there you should take time out of your Sunday to go watch.

DSC00685Summertime.  Just the word brings back great memories!  For many it’s memories of long hot days near a pool, trips to the amusement park or family vacations.  For Still Waters Farm riders it’s that first ride outside, long hot days at the horse shows and getting soaked giving your favorite pony a bath!  And, it’s summer camp!

Summer camp will be June 22nd thru June 26th this year.  If you’re new to Still Waters Farm check out the pictures from prior years on the left panel.  Summer camp is a great place to learn more about horses and how to take care of them.  The kids participate in multiple lessons each day so it gives their riding quite a boost as well.  I think many of them would say that hanging out with their friends and  horses for 5 straight days is the best part.  If you have a horse loving kid in your family, mark your calendars now!

The horses love summer time because they get to hang around outside with all their friends for most of the day.  Munching on grass and meandering around the field.  Playing halter tag (which they do as a year round activity).  It’s a great time of year!
