I am running an equestrian summer camp this year of 2010.  So far everyone seems to be having a lot of fun.  This isn’t a large camp or a training camp for competitve equestrians, but simply a fun camp for kids 6 – 14  who want to learn to ride and have fun with horses.  [...]

I have finally decided to post on this blog about my own experience with my personal horse, Harmony’s Eclipse. It is just a continuation of what my mother posted before, but detailing what I’ve learned in this experience and what I’ve done. Eclipse was born here, on our farm, on April 17, 2001. She was [...]
