Summer 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 was 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.
Summer 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.
