Monday to Wednesday we develop and further our horsemanship skills both in the saddle and on the ground, in the ring and out on the trails of the farm. On Thursday, we pack our lunches in saddlebags and have a picnic adventure ride out on one of the larger trail systems in Pemberton. Friday is obstacle course day, where each group of campers has a chance to set up their own course to ride through on the horses, a true test of the teamwork, riding skills, and relationships they've built all week.

Day 1- FRUIT LEATHER- We'll make a tray of delicious fruit leather to enjoy the next day, incorporating seasonal + local fruits
Day 2- HANDMADE PAPER- We can't resist, we love making paper so much. It engages so many senses at the same time! We'll throw in a few other explorations this year, like incorporating found elements and other papers into wilder, more abstract creations!
Day 3- ROSE LIP BALM: We'll harvest the soothing scent of Pemberton's Wild Roses to make an incredibly soothing and deeply hydrating rose and white chocolate lip balm.
Day 4- PICNIC ADVENTURE RIDE + PLANT MUSIC: Our favorite activity is back! After our picnic ride, we'll play with a device that translates the electromagnetic frequencies of plants into sound- which means we can listen to the plants make music. Does a rose bush sing the same song as a blade of grass?
Day 5- HORSE PAINTING + BAREBACK RIDES- This last day is left with some extra space in it so each camper can have a chance to paint a work of art on a horse and try riding bareback.
