A quick update for you.
We added two evening camps this year for the parents who could not bring riders due to work hours. These camps are from 6-9 PM, 6/20-24 and 7/18-22. They are also less expensive (and not as hot!) at only $250 each. There is plenty of room as of now – I don’t understand why though? Can anyone tell me? I thought these would be very popular. Is 9pm too late or something?
Both beginner/intermediate camps are full already.
The beginner camp (5-7 years old) only has two spots left and is 6/22-7/2.
This Friday’s day camp is almost full. The July 8th day camp is beginning to fill up as people are booking that now. These camps costs less than an hours lesson!
There is only one spot left for the advanced riders camp July 25th to 29th.
Use the paypal button to the right of the page to hold a spot with a deposit.

Thanks so much for everyone who came to the High Country Stables riders fundraiser. They raised $400 for the riders! And we think a good time was had by all…
A special thank you goes out to the Moms – who worked all day to make it a success.
Summer is flying towards us quickly! (We had to thin all the peaches yesterday already!)
If you are thinking of signing up for a summer camp – (and we have added two evening camps this year!) – please do not delay in getting a deposit in. There are also two fun day camps available.
We are advertising this year so we can offer the camps to people who might not know about High Country Stables.
On the [camps page->http://highcountrystables.com/horse-riding-camps/] we added a line to show how many spots are open for each camp – and will try our best to keep it up to date.
We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Next week is Paulding County Saddle Club’s first show!
Spring Break Camp!
If you have been putting off deciding about Spring Break Riding camp I wouldn’t wait much longer. I guess the nice weather has everybody thinking about it and we had two more signups today which doesn’t leave too many spots left!
Someone said the paypal button was not working for taking payments and deposits here so we redid it and added the ability to pay in full or the remainder.
The weather is bringing out the parties as well. Please mention us if you have friends looking for something really fun and different for a birthday party. For $250 we supply 2 horses for an hour and the conference room for an hour for up to 18 kids. Better than that cheesy place!
Gotta go get the mower ready!
Hope we see you soon at the stables!
