Invitational Weekend

We were glad to welcome back some of the campers from this summer for our invitational weekend. This is a weekend were a select number of campers come out for some riding, horse science, and fun. We usually try to work some of the younger horses and give everyone a chance to meet the newer horses. This weekend is also fun because we are able to share some of our favorite memories of summer before winter is here. Since we were also busy with a new set of box stalls the girls had a chance to see the construction zone.

What a beautiful Wisconsin fall day!

Well the snow is here and the horses are enjoying the cooler temps. We have been busy as usual with riding groups and projects. We had a group of excellent young men out for a boy scout merit badge weekend. These gentlemen had the chance to do some riding both in the ring and on trails. They also learned all about horse care, from saddling to hoofcare. Below you will find some pictures from that early November weekend.

Middle School Riding

Every fall we have the chance to work with a wonderful group of middle school students from all of the Madison schools. These riders join us for one day a week for four weeks. As long as the weather allows we head out on trails as well as do ring work. These young men and women learn how to care for a horse as well as steering and trotting. With lots of energy and enthusiasm we really enjoy getting to know these young people.
