Camp was so much fun that Still Waters Farm will be having a second camp this summer. It’s next week, 7/23-7/25/14 (Wed. – Fri.). This one is Trainers Camp but it is open to all ages and all levels of riders. You’ll be learning some different things at this one and it will be a bit harder, but still always fun!
You can sign up just for the day camp or you do the overnight. There is a $50 discount for overnight campers who also attended the summer camp in June. There is a sign up sheet upstairs in the viewing area. If you have any questions just ask Kathy.
JR was a busy guy during the last camp. He put up a flag pole out front so the flags could fly high and proud. He also hauled some horses, although it looks like he’s taking the dogs out for a joy ride!

Summer camp ended on Friday with an incredible horse “show” put on by the campers! Instead of a horse show where they compete, they put on a show with several featured acts, lots of laughs and lots of subtle (and not so subtle) lessons. Several people video taped it and Kathy plans on making copies for all the campers to take home. She’ll let you know when they’re ready.
I took plenty of pictures during the week. Unfortunately, my internet connection at home was down starting Wed. and was just restored Sunday night. I will get pictures posted throughout this week. Anyone who wants copies of all the pictures can bring a flash drive (at least 2gb) to the barn and leave it with Kathy (please put your name on it). She’ll give it to me and I’ll copy the whole folder of pictures for you to keep.
I’m sure by now the kids have told you about all the fun they had. There was plenty of riding, practicing for the show, swimming, campfire stories and just having fun. I enjoy watching how well all the kids get along and how interested they are in everything they’re learning. I’m always amazed at how much progress they make on their riding as well!
This is probably my favorite pool picture, the kids were using a waterproof camera to take a group selfie (I’m sure there’s a better name for it than that) underwater! How fun is that!
