Biggins Stables offers Summer Camp
Biggins Stable, located in Simpsonville, Kentucky, will be hosting their annual summer riding camp in June. The camp is designed for kids 18 years of age and under. Beginners through advanced are more than welcome. The dates are June 17-22, 2013. There is an option for day or overnight camp and a non-refundable $100 deposit is required upon registration.
Besides the intensive riding instruction of Biggins Summer Camp, the camp is a great atmosphere for learning and having fun. The camp features: all meals, lodging, swimming, trail riding, bareback riding, educational activities including a field trip, crafts, a daily one-hour lesson, workouts, lunge lessons, the care of one horse, a grooming contest, and a fun show. Educational activities also include a session with a farrier and veterinarian, harnessing and driving horses, tail-sets, tail braiding, parts of the horse, equipment, tack cleaning, and a speaker on judging.
Evening activities for overnight campers include a trail ride, barbecue with a special guest speaker, and Junior Judging at the Shelby County Fair Horse Show, where kids can see a real horse show and place horses as best as they can. We have a barbecue and awards ceremony after our fun show on Saturday. We invite the parents and families to join us for these events.
Come join us in June if you’re looking for a fun experience and an opportunity to learn new training a riding techniques or just polish up on you show skills.

It is sure to be an experience of a lifetime and a way of forming lifelong friends.
