As for my younger generation of kids who do not have any show experience, I have chosen a couple of schooling shows that I'm hoping will be a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I would like it if my kids could attend a horse show in which the older girls go to, so that they can see how horse shows run, and if it truly is something that you are interested in doing. We will be attending White Birch Hill, Schauber stables, Show Off Equine Events, as well as some Tri County Pony Club shows. Please come talk to me if you guys have any interest in these shows, as I will gladly give you a rundown of how it works and the costs.
Summer camp flyers are being printed up this week. We will be running 6 weeks of summer camp this year around the show schedule we have. Camp will remain at $300 dollars per week. A $50 dollar deposit is required to hold your spot in camp, and that will be deducted from the $300. You may choose to do one week, or you can do a few weeks, it’s entirely up to you. JHA Riding Academy offers riding camp for children ages 6 to 18. We provide a fun, hands on approach to learning about horses. The kids start off their morning by doing basic chores as though they had their own horse, including mucking out a stall. They learn the basics of feeding, grooming, and tacking up their own horse. After they've tacked up, we do a riding lesson, and learn the basics of horsemanship. Depending on the experience level, we do fun activities from obstacle courses to bareback rides on super hot sunny days! After the riding lesson we cool down our horses, hose them off, and eat some lunch. We end our day with crafts, talk about what we've learned, and hang out on the water slide!!! On the flyers, a list of what your child needs to bring will be on there as well as a registration form to send in. If your child has any sort of allergy, or physical limitation, please make us aware ahead of time so that way we can accommodate everybody’s needs.
