Pony Camp

Monday was the first day of Pony Camp (I of course forgot my camera). They started out by learning how to groom the horses and put the blanket and saddle on. Then they got on and learned the basics... how to hold the reins, how to go, how to stop. They did some more lessons in the arena and then went for a quick trail ride. Gallie had a lot of fun and didn't want to leave her pony, Blaze. He was the biggest pony and she was the youngest girl, but she did pretty good!

Today (Tuesday) they learned to trot (which Gallie loved!), back up, and go around cones. After a really long trail ride we were ready for lunch. At the end of the day the kids got to ride bare back. I thought we were going to have a melt down when she had to get off, but I reassured her we would be back tomorrow and she could bring a treat for Blaze.
