It's December Already!

Hello from Hoofbeat!
We wanted to do a little camp update before it gets too much farther into December!
We have been really busy here at camp working on mailings, camp registration for 2020, hiring staff, taking care of the horses, finishing up the new shed, and getting ready for Dolly's Christmas Party and Christmas Camp. Normally this time of year things have slowed down a little bit, but we have plenty to keep us busy right now!
We are excited to have quite a few returning staff for next summer. A couple of our international staff will be back, plus we have hired three new staff from Australia, Ireland, and the UK. As summer gets closer, we will post staff bios on the blog and our Facebook page, so be on the lookout for those.
Dolly's Christmas Party is next weekend and we're keeping our fingers crossed for good weather!
Christmas Camp is not too far off and staff have been busy planning for it. This year our New Year's Eve party theme will be "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas Camp". Campers and staff can bring costumes and we will make sure to get some pictures and put them on the blog. A big thank you to Jasmine and Heide for doing a bunch of pre-planning for us!
A few weeks ago we had a buck hanging around Pow Wow Point (near our fire pit). Here are a couple of pictures we got of him. Until next time, take care!

Horse Lover's Fall Harvest Day

We had a whirlwind of a Fall Harvest day! Thanks to everyone who joined us on Saturday! The day was filled with riding and other fall festivities. Campers got to take a hayride to visit Dragon's (shhhh... don't tell anyone it was Lightning) Pumpkin Patch, pick a pumpkin, and decorate it to take home. We also had a costume contest for the horses! Each group got to brainstorm a theme and paint their horses into a costume! Dragon made another appearance to judge the costumes and hoof out treats!

Fall Colors at Camp

Hello from Hoofbeat!
Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall colors - fall is in full swing!
The horses have been enjoying some time out in their pastures (in between the rainy days!). They have spent some time in the barn too, because of the rain and cooler temperatures.  Their coats are starting to get thicker in preparation for winter.
We have been really busy here at camp. Our weekends have been booked with Mother/Daughter camps, Girl Scouts, our yearly visit from Able Trek Tours, day camps, and other riding groups. We are also starting to hire staff for next summer already!
Here are a few pictures we got of the fall colors - enjoy!
