It's still trying to be spring!

After a warm, sunny day yesterday it's back to cool and wet again.  Some day our horses will get out of the mud and  rain!  Even though it's not summer yet, we're already planning our summer fun.  Mary's Peak will be hosting D Camp again this year at Nancy McKnight's great place in Turner, OR.  Last year we had about 40 kids and horses at camp and it was incredibly fun with riding, playing in the creek, arts and crafts, and more riding.  The most amazing thing was the arts and crafts where the kids did quilt blocks and a mom sewed them into a quilt to give Mrs. McKnight.  Another event is being planned by one of our older members, an inter-regional tetrathlon rally.  That will also be held at Mrs. McKnight's in August. 

This month we had a great unmounted lesson on parts of the horse and conformation.  Madison's pony was very patient as she got labels taped to most of her body parts!  There were a variety of horses to look at and compare their conformation.  

We would also like to welcome Emily to the club!  Emily and her pony Sophie are excited to join the fun of Pony Club.
