New Horse Riding Apparel for Camp

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans! 

If you’re planning on going horseback riding this summer, then you’ll definitely want to make sure that you have the proper horse riding apparel. On today’s post, I’ll be going over five separate articles of clothing from English Riding Supply specifically designed for horseback riding.

Ovation Euro Tight

Our first item of riding apparel is the EQ Athlete Polo. Made of cotton/spandex jersey, this polo is fashionable, cute, and comfortable. It bears an Athlete print on the left chest and a full horse crest print on the back. You’re sure to remain comfortable while riding in this athletic fabric!

Another great riding top to consider is the EQ Style Polo. Like the EQ Athlete, the EQ Style too is made of cotton/spandex jersey. Unlike the other polo, this one is not printed but embroidered on the left chest and on the back with the Equestrian Style design. Aside from the embroidery, these shirts are two toned with a complimentary-colored collar and bottoms of the sleeves.

And now onto the Euro Tight—it’s made of a mid-weight cotton/spandex blend. Another two-tone garment, the stylish Euro Tight goes well with the EQ Style Pro—no matter what color combination you go with. This tight has star-shaped rivets, a wide smooth-fit waistband, belt loops, and coin pocket OV.

Or you could go with the Horseshoe Jean Breech. Also made of a mid-weight cotton/spandex blend, this breech mimics the classic jean look with contrast stitching and wide a smooth-fit waistband with belt loops. Given embroidered horseshoe designs on both back pockets, the Jean Breech is as close to jeans as you can get in a pair of horse riding pants.

Lastly, I’ll talk about the Elite Half Chaps. These half chaps are made of a lightweight, soft Amara. They bear an embroidered pony design and have stretch panels that are sure to make for a close fit. They have snap closures on the top and bottom along with hidden zippers to help keep dirt out!

Now that you know what to wear, you can finish preparing for some comfortable and stylish horseback riding this summer! Have a blast and, as always, thanks for reading!

Camp Alleghany

Posted on

Steeped in Traditions

Camp Alleghany is an all-girls’ overnight summer camp located in the Alleghany Mountains in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Girls 1st through 10th grades spend three weeks at a time on the beautiful and peaceful banks of the Greenbrier River, away from the many distractions of the school year.

Girls having fun at Camp AlleghanyAs the oldest girls’ camp in the Virginias, Alleghany has continually upheld the purposes established by her founders more than 80 years ago.  Camp Alleghany educates young women in the principles of sportsmanship, citizenship, cooperation, consideration for others, the Honor System, and meaningful appreciation of cultural and spiritual traditions. These goals are achieved in a lively, relaxed, and fun setting, allowing the girls to enhance their self-esteem and boost their confidence while growing in maturity and responsibility.

Alleghany’s philosophy is that when young women spend time together in a structured yet fun setting, away from their male friends, school, peer pressure, and academic expectations, they gain confidence and leadership potential. Alleghany offers a chance to experience new activities, to express one’s self, and to broaden one’s abilities without the pressures of our fast-paced society. Living under an honor system and in the safety of the wilderness away from the distractions of modern technology, the girls build new skills, lasting friendships, and solid self-confidence.

Employee Bio: Shirley

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

At the beginning of the month, we had our first Employee Bio blog post about Kristy, Everything Summer Camp’s Lead Buyer.

The hope with these particular blog posts is for you to get to know us better here at Everything Summer Camp, learn a thing or two about the people who work here, andShirley, production supervisor at Everything Summer Camp have a better understanding of who we are as a company.

Today marks our second Employee Bio post about our Production Supervisor, Shirley. She plays a very vital role in the construction of our camp trunks. As the Supervisor, Shirley coordinates the scheduling for production based on the orders for camp trunks that we get from you.

She also keeps her eye on inventory levels and assigns daily goals for her crew. Together, they get everyone’s camp trunk made, custom to what you ordered and we ship it out to you in plenty of time before summer camp starts!

A camp trunk, a foot locker, locker trunks—it doesn’t really matter what you call them; in any case, Shirley makes them and she’s probably one of the best in the country at doing it. After almost 26 years of building them, we pretty much consider her an expert at this point! 

If you’re all brushed-up on your Everything Summer Camp trivia, you may already realize that Shirley has been working here ever since this company first got going—that’s pretty impressive. The length of her employment just goes to show how much she likes her job.

What’s kept her here for so long? “I enjoy the people that I work with and take satisfaction in the products we make,” she says. Having started out as a Production Worker, Shirley’s come to have an exceptional understanding of what durable trunk construction is and how to achieve it on every single one she builds.

So, after reading this post and learning a little about Shirley, aren’t you glad we have her in charge of making your camp trunk? Until next time, Campers. And, as always, thanks for reading!
