We had some strange weather for July, but a little rain won't slow us down!
Read on to find out about our young philanthropists raising money for a good cause, Jenny's derby winning streak, horse show highlights (including a few rainy day photos), all the fun had at camp, and the sweet sorrow of sending our first of four off to begin their college education.

Medal Finals are just a few weeks away and there's much to look forward to this fall. Good luck everyone!

FWF Summer Camp!

The second three weeks of camp were crazy fun. Other than some unheard of July rain, we were lucky to have mild weather that allowed the campers to have some fun riding bareback in the afternoons. The campers made horse treats and people cookies and even went to the movies on a rained out day. More swimming at Sofie Applegate's in Topanga and a final day party with parents rounded a fantastic summer. The campers even taught their parents the parts of a bridle to show just a little of what they learned. A big thanks to Leslie McNiff for leading the way and Caitlin, Audrey and Emily, the most patient and fun counselors. Also thanks to the riding instructors Lisa, Chris and Kathy for their stupendous lessons.
