Horse Camp (Continued)

So, I finally sat down to write about horse camp. I downloaded most of the pictures from The Promised Land Camp’s Facebook page, so they aren’t the best quality.

Tacking up Marshmallow on the first day. I was one of the first people done tacking up, so I just kind of wandered around helping other people.

Hangin’ out with Shilo.

Riding in the arena. I can’t remember exactly what we were doing here… It rained a LOT at camp, so we kind of had to ride in between the rain. We weren’t allowed to canter which was a huge bummer for me.

Tacking up Licorice on the second day. Licorice is an okay horse, but boy is he lazy! I was trying to do a pattern with him, and he skipped most of it and headed towards the other horses who were at the other side of the arena!

We also took our horses up to a small obstacle course in the woods by our cabin. We didn’t take the horses over the bridge because of how slippy it was, but we did walk them through a tarp filled with water and pull tires with them. I got licorice to pull two! I had a report from the boy who rode Marshie up to the obstacle course, and he said the Marshmallow refused to go in the water until she was lead through it. I kind of saw that coming because of how she avoided the water in the arena.

Trail rides!

The last day after a trail ride around the camp we had a little fun show.

We did pretty good. I can’t remember why it broke. Thankfully I was matched with someone who rode a horse of the same size.

Other stuff:

I’ve been jumping!!!

Zeus_01

Me riding Zeus. If you guys want to see a video of me jumping, let me know in the comments.

Koda_03

Before I was riding Zeus for jumping, I rode Koda. He isn’t the best for cantering jumps, which is why I switched to Zeus. However, this coming Friday is my last lesson at the Y so I’m going to ride Sam one last time.

Me and Koda.

I don’t think you guys have ever met Larry, my instructors dog. (Well, Annalee, you have)

I still have to get one with Koda and Abelard with their models, but I might wait until next summer.

Scroll over a picture to find the horse’s name.

One more thing!

I went to Philadelphia on a missions trip!

 

Thanks for sticking with me through this entirely too long post. See you in the next post!
