Best camp in Cincinnati (or Harrison). Gallup Again Horse Camp. When they don't have campers the owners of the camp are rescuing animals. That place was absolutely amazing.
Here's the gist of it. Each day I had to take care of a horse and another animal. Goats, ducks, cats, you get the idea. Clean their stall. Chickens, dogs. Feed em. The works. And I earned horse money for all this. But I also had to spend my horse money on their food and their care (we had a vet tech, farrier, masseuse come in). You could earn extra by helping other campers out-which I did every day. And at night we had homework. I want to point out now that I was one of the youngest campers, going up to 13. And we had the same assignments. So, this stuff took me quite a bit of time in the evening. I had to research hackney ponies and write three paragraphs on the cool animals. And then present it to all the next day. This camp was intense. And awesome. And wonderful. And one of the best weeks of my life.
At the end of the week we had a bit of a show to put on for all. And, of course, that means quite the crew. Mom, brothers, Big Mama, Manny, Grama Max and Aunt Owi all came to watch the big day!!
First, the relay races, bareback style. I fell off this thing many times earlier in the week, but I got used to it by the big day. Here we go!
