I spent about 4 or 5 summers at this place, specifically that portable and they were some of the best summers of my life. From being a camp kid to working, most of my time was spent in here if it was raining or hot as hell, if I was learning or helping to teach, if I’d fallen off epically or had amazing rides I always came to this place. from the summers where the horse I loved was lame and I waited everyday for her to get better, to the summer I spent falling in love with a horse that left me before I was ready for it, to those summers where I just rode whatever needed to get ridden and didn’t argue. I took summer camp because it was the only way to get lessons in 2010 in the summer because I was busy on the one day my barn offered summer lessons and I rode the horse that i will never get out of my head thanks to summer for the entire thing, I rode and worked and I got close to some amazing girls that I miss terribly. I meet some of my best friends here and fell in love with some amazing horses.
I miss this place
I will never forget all it taught me
that stupid moment where gifs don’t move
so you have to post it as text
I am thankful for the horses that have taught me the ropes and taught me how to win. They taught me how to ride pretty. They taught me how to catch people’s attention. I am thankful for those horses that everyone doubted, that people just assumed would never get around a course. They taught me to stick with anything and to always take on a challenge. They helped me prove that I’m not just a pretty rider, that I really know what I’m doing. I am thankful for those coaches that went a little easy, that let me develop confidence. I am extremely thankful for the coaches that pushed me, that taught me the true meaning of competitive riding. I am thankful for every horse that has crossed my path, every coach that has stood ringside trying not to scream because they got me here. They got me every single opportunity i’ve had, and they will continue to get me more.
