Horseback Riding!

Another beautiful day of week 6! Today the campers that do horseback riding in the morning not only rode a horse but got to learn essential horse grooming skills. It may only be Tuesday but so far they have all learned to control their assigned horse from telling it to go, stop, or turn in a circle. A lot of them even ride without a walking buddy beside them.

After a while of riding we stopped by the stables and learned all about soft brushes vs. hard brushes. We discussed where they can be brushed, what they don’t like, and what direction brush. We then ended off by learning about the horse’s hooves including what parts are sensitive and how often they need to be cleaned. We can’t wait to go back tomorrow 😀
