We are getting ready to transition into the new stable and yesterday was spent moving all of the saddles. So far, each of the saddles has been moved and Katie is now unscrewing and removing the saddle racks so we can refinish them and put them up in the new stable. Lesley has spent a good amount of time going through and making sure each saddle and bridle have tags and each item of tack is suitable for camp. With how many saddles and bridles we have, this task is quite the undertaking. We will post pictures of the tack rooms as soon as they are set up – stay tuned!


With the new stable almost complete, one of our last steps is to move the tack into the tack rooms. While it may sound difficult, moving over 50 saddles is actually the easiest part of the work. In contrast, measuring out the saddle racks in our new tack rooms and making sure each is in the right place is the hardest part. During morning tacking up times, we may have to arrange the set up a bit differently this year, something we will experiment with during our first few sessions of Camp. With our horses still in the same field and ready to be ridden, the campers, counselors, instructors, and other staff will be adjusting to a new barn location.
