Yay! Guess Who Just Went On A Horse Riding Camp?! OMG!

Hi all,
I have just come back from a horse riding camp. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! I loved it. It was awesome. I rode this horse called Cody that I had never ridden before. He is a Grey, (white) horse, approx, 15+ 16- hh. He is an Arab, I never really liked him but he was excellent when I rode him. Each day we rode for 3hours45mins and you get to act like you own the horse! OMG! IT WAS SO DANG FUN! I really can't tell you about it because there IS WAY TO MUCH!!!

OK, well, first of all, it isn't pony club. It was held at where I go, a riding school.lol.
Well, first, we got there at nine. We talked about what we were going to do etc. We filled up the feed, the water, etc and then got the horses and bought them into their bays. It was the first time I had ridden Cody, because some silly person took the horse I normally ride, (Silver) on every day, on every camp!
We then saddled them up, brushed them, made sure their hooves were clean etc. We then had morning tea and after 15 minutes we all went out and ride for 2 hours. The first arena was with Sharron, we did jumping. I have never really liked jumping but did it anyway. After 30 minutes we then moved on to fun and games with Nerelle, my fav instructor. She let us do whatever we wanted to on the obsitcale course! I rode western and just mucked around. She was really fun. We then moved out to cross country with the person that runs the place, Katrina. We just hooned around, jumping, going up a hill and down it, it was really fun. When then went to do dressage with Deana, it was alright. I normally like dressage but it was a bit boring.
At 12:30 we stopped riding, unsaddled, unbridled, sponged the horses down, hoof picked them and had lunch for an hour and we could go on the BMX track, plait our horse's tails etc. We had to make sure they always had food and water for them there. At 1:30 we just did the same thing.
At the end of the day the people that were sleeping got to hose instead of sponge the horses down. Cody really loved it. He was a good boy. He just stood there. He really liked it when I stuck the hose near his mouth, we sucked it up and drank it. He had his cute ears forward the hole time. The people that were sleeping went in their pool for 1 hour or so. WE then played Bingo, had some tea, did a couple of stuff and at 10:30 we went to bed. We talked until like 12am! And I feel asleep just after.

The next day was kinda the same, but a little funner. When we were hooning, Cody was going a good pace but then I urged him on and he went like a bullet out of a shot gun and wouldn't stop! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!
That si all I can really tell you, there is just too much.
