Adopt-a-Horse week nine really helped us finish the summer strong with such a wonderful group of campers! All the downhill activities were a blast while the girls got in touch with their creative sides during Arts & Crafts, showed off their sporty selves in Sports, and got down to Earth in all their Nature classes. The real treat this week though was watching them form a lasting bond not only with their new two legged friends- but their adopted four legged companion as well. Grooming, leading, and loving up on their adopted horses was by far the highlight of the week, besides all our time spent riding in the arena. We were gifted a stretch of beautiful weather too, just to top off our week.
Friday was by far our best day thanks to all the enthusiasm the campers- and staff- showed for the Super Hoofbeat theme. From the Color Wonders super hero group to all the Superwomen roaming about, it was quite the adventure in camp. The camper with the best costume was even awarded a small prize compliments of Ted himself. I think the second best part to our Friday celebration were all the fabulous songs the ladies prepared for the Parent Showcase. The girls really sat down and thought out how they wanted to present their adopted horses- and boy did they! Great job this week ladies and we hope to see you again soon here at Hoofbeat. Until then though, here are a few photos to help commemorate your time spent during Adopt-a-Horse week nine.
