Friday was a relaxed day where the girls spent time making very creative candles and chilling at waterfront before making some tasty banana boats around the campfire for evening program. They did of course also have their normal riding lessons and it is great to see the girls all bonding with their assigned horses.

Saturdays at EVR is bareback day which means that everyone has their riding lesson without a saddle! Riding bareback is a fantastic way to improve your riding position, as you don’t have a saddle to rely on to keep you secure. Even though the weather didn’t comply with our plans, all of the girls had big smiles on their faces and really loved riding without a saddle. As well as riding, we all decorated masks for the evening when we had a 4th of July masquerade ball! We took photos of all of the girls on the red carpet before dancing the night away to our favourite tunes and a great time was had by all.

On Sundays for Theme Day the horses have a day off and the girls get to have a lie-in before brunch at 10.30 so that everyone is nice and rested. After a tasty brunch of waffles, ice cream, eggs and sausages the theme for the day was revealed as…. The Olympics! All of the girls were divided into countries and given tasks to complete in order to earn a clue which then lead to the next clue. This was followed by a big slip ‘n slide, a water fight and other water activities. In the evening, we got a hayride down to Farm Camp for a BBQ, games and dancing. All of the girls enjoyed making new friends at the farm and making the most of the different games that are available there. Today it is back to riding and ground lessons and we have been busy making posters for East plus West which is our evening program on Wednesday. Tonight we are playing USB which is a camp favourite!
