Week 2 at camp

Week 2 brought us our first series of cross country lessons for our campers. For many it was the first time they'd ridden in an open field and gotten to attempt our XC jumps! They all did great and are now in love with riding outside the ring.  The field trip this week was to the local Drive In movie theater in Lexington, VA.  What a treasure that place is! 

Friday morning we had a gymkhana, where the camp was split up into teams to do relay races on horse back. Note some of the pictures with painted horse and campers. The potato and spoon race was fun, as well as the donut race and apple bobbing!  Sunday we took all the girls to the Breezy River Stables horse show where everyone got ribbons and we had several champions and reserve champions among the campers!

We did our own fireworks, complete with a bonfire, s'mores, and sparklers last night as rain has canceled some area events for the evening. Tonight we head to the famed CiCi's pizza for dinner!
