With the record temperatures reaching possibly 60 degrees Fahrenheit today, we cannot help but think about summer camp being only a couple months away. June is approaching fast, and with the blast of warm weather, it suddenly feels much closer for this New England horseback riding camp. The team at Road’s End Farm is running around the farm today in short sleeve shirts, light weight long sleeve shirts, and baseball caps rather than winter hats. Quite the sight in February. Wishing our camp families well during this warm weather snap, and are looking forward to filling the farm with girls of all ages this summer.

 

Being a summer riding camp in New England, we must endure the year round New England weather. Despite it being February, the temperature has been in the high 50’s the past few days, and our horses are certainly not ready for this weather change. For us humans, the sun feels beautiful and the spring weather is refreshing, but for our furry friends, this weather isn’t as nice. We are making sure all of our horses get water, much like we do during summer camp, and we are monitoring our old horses to make sure they aren’t getting too hot. Although we love our summer weather, we are looking forward to cooler temperatures next week for the thermoregulation of our pasture pals.

Road’s End Farm is known all over the world for being a horseback riding camp, yet the campers who come here year-in and year-out know we are one big family. The Road’s End family spans globally, and we have connections to countries all across the world, yet the most special thing that is created each year are lifelong friendships. While young girls come here for the horses, to live on a working horse farm, the trail riding, the ring lessons, we find that girls leave with the most important creation of all – genuine friendships. With the congenial camp environment, strong, lifelong friendships are created at the end of Jackson Hill Road, and our campers and camp families become a part of the Road’s End Farm extended family. We look forward to a summer camp full of nurturing friendships this upcoming 2017 season.

With 8 girls here to join us for Winter Camp week, we are reminiscing on memories from previous summers, sharing laughs, and sledding as much as possible. The horses are loving the extra attention, and anticipating summer camp 2017 when they will be surrounded by even more devoted campers. We snowshoed around the overlooks on the trails that we ride on, and the trails were a winterized beautiful while the overlooks were spectacular with the crisp air. We will continue the sledding, the horse grooming, and the laughing for the remainder of the week.

Road’s End Farm officially founded a production label, Friendship Films, and we are excited to announce our first cinematic experience for your visual pleasure. Enjoy the world premiere of Super Herd, our special herd of horses at the end of Jackson Hill Road. These horses are cherished during summer camp by girls from all over the world, and this video celebrates Road’s End Farm’s lovely herd.

Just so there is no confusion, this is not a real film that is being produced, but rather a chance for us to create short film clips that are cute, funny, and enjoyable to watch while you are not at camp. We hope everyone in our extended camp family enjoys watching these silly little films! We have fun making them! 🙂
