**Zone 16 Pony Club Camp**

Well once a year zone 16 pony club holds a camp. The camp is held at the show grounds about an hours drive from where my horse is and it is great! Around 500 kids go, 500 horses, and lots of instructors, a great cook and heaps of helpers and troop leaders.

You have 6 hours of riding and lessons a day. (1 and a half hours for each lesson). Two in the morning, with a 15min break in between for morning tea.. then a hour and a half stop for lunch and the saddle up again for another two lessons with a break in between for afternoon tea, about 15min.

It all starts with a working bee on the saturday to put up the lights, tarps (for the dorms), set up horse yards etc.

On the Sunday, (which turned out to be on my birthday) you arrive with your horse fix up its yards.. sort out your float (because your float is what all of your tack etc is stored in for the week). After the horse is sorted out you go down to the dorms and sort out your swag/bed. Then you go and have lunch. After lunch you go and saddle up your horse ready to go with your troop (about 12 other riders) and the instructor assess you and makes sure you are in the ride level group. After that you go and unsaddle your horse and go to the food line to get food for your horses dinner... They supply white and green chaff as well as meadow and lucine hay. When your horse is rugged you have free time of sorts to chill with your friends and relax before your dinner.

Then from Monday to Friday you have your lessons.. from show jumping, dressage, flatwork, cross country, polocrosse, pony soccer, vaulting, sporting, mounted games, orienteering, carriage driving, and lots more.

Then on most of the nights the have something on, like on Wednesday they had the bush dance, on Monday they had a movie night and on Friday they had the disco (a lot of fun).

Here are some photos from my troop.. im the one on the palli. These are the only ones I have at the moment but hopefully will get some more from friends later in the week.

** In one of the photos im on the ground.. I didn't fall off or anything but one of the boys in my troop pushed me off Abbi... and I fell off because I had my legs crossed over her neck.. hehe.. was very funny! But it did hurt. I ended up hitting him with my whip across the thigh.. so hard my whip broke

Sorry for the novel guys.
