Kaylee I.!

Congratulations, Kaylee! You win a $100 gift certificate to our one-stop camping gear shop! Kaylee gives us her story of her first year of summer camp at Pine Cove Camp in Texas. Read about it in her Contest entry right here:


I went to my first camp this year. I had many fun experiences but my favorite took place on the first full day of camp. This was my first time being away from home for this long and I was excited but not sure of what to expect. I went to the stable that morning after breakfast. My friend, Addie, was talking with me on the way there. We met our horses, got our helmets, mounted and prepared for the ride ahead.

I followed the horses in front of me and behind me was Addie on her horse. We went all through the woods around the camp. We went over hills, past streams, over leaves and around trees. It was so unbelievable that I felt like I was in a movie. Tex was my horse was a chestnut color so he had a brown mane and body. That night, I couldn't sleep because I was so excited about the days to come.

I was able to ride Tex again later that week. During that ride, I was able to have another amazing time. We were able to practice leading, ride by ourselves, trotting around the arena, mounting and dismounting. It was even better since I was able to share all of it with my best friend, Addie!


It’s wonderful to hear how well camp went for you, Kaylee! What a truly magical moment you captured in your wonderful writing. Thanks for taking us along for the ride with you and Addie, her horse, and Tex. To anybody else interested in
