One of Helen Grace’s favorite weeks of the year is pony camp at Aintree Farms (June 13-17 this year)!
They ride early in the morning, then arts and crafts, then eat their sack lunch, and finally dive into the neighborhood pool to cool off! We signed up for the June session, thinking it’d be the coolest, but I swear it had to have been the hottest days of the year yet. At one point, HG overheated and had to get off the horse- you know that’s serious!
She had a big time and met lots of new friends, as always. She did well in the show on Friday as well, earning a first and a second place ribbon which also meant she won a champion ribbon! Grandma left work to come see her ride, and Spiffer and I brought Cressey (who stayed in the cool car for all but HG’s ride). By the way, she asked to ride on Beanie AGAIN for the show, but thankfully, Beanie is back to her normal self after regulating some of her meds.
We are awfully proud of our big, brave girl!

Cressey literally did not take her eyes off of HG the whole time she was riding.
