This camp has been crazy to schedule this year as we have fewer people doing the full camp and others just filling in here and there. I hope I haven't messed things up. I'm only going to post Sun - Tues schedules as the other days are still a work in progress and I wanted to get something out to you. Not to panic, Sun is not a part of camp, but for those who wanted to ride with Leigh but couldn't be fit into the Mon schedule.
All the Mon & Tues dressage lessons are 45 minute semi privates and the show jumping lessons are anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half depending on the size of the group with the cross country lessons a bit longer. The Wed schedule for those who are doing the whole camp can be a "ride a test" and a "ride a course" lesson which will be private for dressage and semi private for jumping and a bit shorter or you can ride a regular lesson. Just let me know what you would like to do for scheduling purposes. Thurs will more than likely be cross country.
This camp is primarily riding and I strongly encourage you to watch other lessons; you will learn a lot but we will have some additional activities. I will be available to do my Power Point presentation on 'Dressage from the Judge's Point of View' during lunch on Mon and unless I get some late additions, we will be having Eric do a XC demo ride at the end of lessons on Mon. Tues we will be setting the show jump course and at the completion of lessons we'll walk the course with Doug & Eric to get their perspective on how to ride the course for Wed. After Wed lessons Wed we will have a round table discussions with Eric and Doug where you can ask whatever you would like ... well almost anything; it has to be related to horses ;) The discussions can continue at dinner at VanScoys 'His Way Farm' where we'll be having ribs and corn on the cob If you haven't signed up for the mean plan, you can add this dinner for $10. Finally, for those tired and aching muscles; Laura Gentile will be available to massage you and your horses.
I'm not going to bother with stall assignments other than Autumn laying claim to stalls 69 & 70 in the pipe barn. The pipe barn tends to be the coolest and the second choice for stalls would be on the west side facing the woods near the water. Remember NO bedding is provided and stalls need to be stripped before leaving.
For those of you who are doing the meal plan please note that it will be available at the house. If you would like to sign up for meals or you have special requests please let me know as I'm going shopping on Fri. There will be water and snacks available in the stabling area and feel free to cut into the watermelons that will be floating in the cistern. Since I don't do coffee Autumn has volunteered to share her Keurig coffee (or tea) maker (and generator) for those staying who want/need coffee. Just bring a cup and a few extra K-cups so we have enough!!!!
It looks like it's going to be a warm week but hopefully dry so plan on bringing your swimsuit. The pond water is great!
I think this is it for now. Below is the schedule for the first 3 days. Looking forward to a great camp.
