We had a very fun Friday here at camp. Although the weather was warm, we stayed in the shade during the afternoon by heading out on trail rides! We also did some arts and crafts projects and played some group games to stay cool in the afternoon. Our afternoon was of course supplemented with lots of water and pretzels - the official snack of Hoofbeat Ridge. :)
This evening, all the cabins spent some time cleaning and packing, before meeting on the Athletic Field for some all-camp games.
Here are some pictures from today. To see a larger view of any picture, just click on it.
The last few pictures are of our new horse. We are looking for a new name for him, so if you have suggestions, leave them in the comments by Monday evening - we'll be collecting suggestions and having a vote sometime next week.
