Our Summer riding camps.
We decided to utilize our horses in a recreational riding thingy this year. With the economy in a bit of a slump it was our solution to train, get our horses out there, and have fun doing it.
A number of kids came and spent time with us and the horses and I had so much fun with all this. My horses seemed to prosper under the constant kid attention and it made my heart sing to see the kids faces with their huge grins.
I decided that I was going to offer getting to know horses and just the basics to see how things went.....and then for the summer we would have more one on one and integrate my love of art as well. It was so good and we have people already asking about next year.
These curlies are natural teachers and seem to know exactly what is needed for each individual child. Could it be that the curlies are more intuitive that other horses? It sure seemed like it and over and over they proved their versatility to me. We are so blessed to have them in our lives!
Here are a few photos of the kids......enjoy.
