July was filled with summer camp fun, joyful celebrations, and successful horse shows. Medal Finals begin in just a few weeks, but before then there's more fun to be had at camp, more celebrations, college send-offs and, as always, more horse shows.  

Good luck to Jenny and Lisa Hankin's Puissance R in the Pre-Green Incentive Championship Finals at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky! 
Jenny will also be competing on two horses in the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship Finals. Both can be viewed live stream at August 16th, 17th, 19th and 20th.

Please scroll down for horse show highlights, medal final qualifiers, new partnerships, summer camp photos, upcoming shows and more.

Far West Farms Summer Camp!

Far West campers had some super fun afternoon activities -- Dave Thornbury came and taught them a little bit about trick roping, there was a rousing game of water tag, an afternoon of cupcake decorating and bareback riding.

By far the most popular afternoon activity has been the Adopt-a-horse program where campers "adopt" a lesson horse for their time at camp and learn what it takes to care for their own horse. We groom, take the horses for walks, check the stall for safety, check the horse for any health issues or injuries and give lots of treats and TLC.

Big thanks to the Resnicks who hosted the campers at their pool every week!
A great escape from the summer heat!

Happy 30th, Chris!
Best Wishes to the New Partnership:

Congratulations to Andie on her purchase of Boy!
