Skit Night!

We've had a great start to our last week of camp. This morning, each camper found out who her horse would be for the week, and we had lessons in the morning and played mounted games in the afternoon. In the evening, the cabin groups prepared skits to perform for camp. Each cabin also included some equine performers in their skits. Here are some pictures of the cabin groups having fun with their skits:

Also, all RITs will be riding in a demonstration at 10:45 AM. If your daughter is riding in the RIT demo or staying to watch, please make sure they are packed up and checked out by 10:30.

Good Day for Riding!

We have enjoyed beautiful weather the past few days, with low humidity and temperatures mostly in the 80s. This has made pleasant riding conditions for both horses and riders. Here are some pictures of our riding activities:

Tonight, our evening theme was the Disney movie Tangled!! Flynn Rider was kidnapped by a witch, and the campers had to complete various challenges to set him free. It was an exciting night and everyone had a lot of fun doing all the different activities, including a web of "Rapunzel's Hair", a visit to the "Snuggly Duckling", a treasure hunt in the woods, and working together to dance and paint a beautiful picture. Here are some photographs of the excitement!

Beautiful Weather = Fun Day!

We've had a great time so far this week at Hoofbeat! Monday and Tuesday were quite warm, but today was a gorgeous day! We went on some trail rides in the afternoon, and in the evening had a lot of fun competing in teams in a variety of events! The camp was divided into four teams, and each team worked together to complete wacky challenges thought up by Camp Director Ted. Here are some pictures of our fun, and of the different teams:
