Meet Kristin! She is 8 years old and enrolled in our Horseback Riding Camp. She has been riding for about 3 years and has been attending Future Stars Camps for 2 years. Kristin shares her experiences with Meg Griffin.
Hi Kristin! So how are you liking camp?
Kristin: “I love camp. I am in the first horseback riding group this year!”
And what does that mean Kristen?
Kristin: “It means that I ride at a pretty advanced level. I can canto (meaning a fast gallop). I was in the second group last year, so I have gotten a little better.”
What is your favorite part of the day?
Kristen: “The morning! When I am riding.”
What else do you do at camp besides riding?
Kristin: “We learn about how to groom and bathe the horses. Today we helped give one of the horses a medicated bath for his skin.”
Who is your favorite horse at Stratford Stables (where they ride)?
Kristin: “Either Peaches or Pluto. Peaches is a pony and Pluto is a horse. It used to be Patrick last year.”
Who is your best friend at camp?
Who is your favorite counselor?
What else do you like to do besides riding?
Kristin: “During the year I play tennis, softball, basketball, and I swim. I also like to read.”
Have you read any books recently?
Kristin: “Yes, I read ‘Black Beauty’ recently, it’s about a horse.”
Do you ride horses during the year?
Kristin: “Not really, but after camp in the summer I go to iceland to see my family and ride horses?”
Woah! Where do you ride the horses?
Kristin: “At a stable, but sometimes we take them to the beach”
Do you speak icelandic?
Do you have any goals for camp?
Kristin:“Yes, I would want to maybe be able to jump.”
