The Summer is Winding Down
As the school year is fast approaching, many things are happening around the barn. Last week head coach Heather Pinnick hosted six hunt seat riders from the Autumn Rose IEA team in Columbus, OH. Each rider participated in the three day camp where they focused on horse show preparation. Flat lessons were held in the mornings and fences lessons in the afternoon. The students also learned about confirmation, different types of equipment and bandaging.
Alongside the Autumn Rose campers, we finished up week three of four of our annual beginner horseback riding summer camp. The ten campers who ranged from eight to twelve years old learned the basics of riding and caring for a horse. At the end of the week, they showed off their skills by painting the parts of the horse on our own trusty steed, Bailey! We are currently in the swing of our last and final week of summer camp 2014!
