With horse shows every weekend in August, we have lots of good results to report -- including a fabulous trip to Kentucky!  

Summer camp was a wonderful time for all and we have the video to prove it. And we're pleased to offer some upcoming opportunities to extend the fun. 

The end of summer brings Medal Finals and bittersweet goodbyes to our college freshman. Please scroll down for horse show highlights, medal final qualifiers, new partnerships, upcoming shows and more.

It's always a little sad to bid our riders farewell as they move on to college, but we proudly send them off and wish them well -- and hope they come back to visit soon!

Nina's participating in a Global Citizenship & Leadership Program in South America this fall where she'll stay with families in various villages, experiencing the culture and language, and learning about the local communities and trades before heading to Dartmouth!

Hannah's off to Brown!

Far West Farms Summer Camp!

The summer of 2016 was memorable. The campers were so enthusiastic -- not just about riding, but also about horsemanship. They were hungry to learn whatever we taught them, from tack care to horse care to bits and their purposes, to assembling bridles, horse anatomy and so much more. We've never seen so many campers, even 7 and 8 year-olds, willingly pick out hooves! It was a pleasure working with them.

New this summer were two weeks of afternoon field trips. One of the favorites was our trip to LA Equestrian Vaulting, where the campers watched a demonstration and then had a chance to try it out.

Coming in September: Saturday afternoon horsemanship sessions which include the ever popular Summer Camp Adopt-a-Horse program and a continuation of the Far West Horsemanship Challenge, where campers learn about horses, horse care, and riding. Details coming soon.

Best Wishes to the New Partnerships:

Dulcie & Love
