Memorial Day Girls Riding Weekend 2018!
Tuesday, May 29th 2018

Fourteen campers join us at Forrestel this past weekend and what a wonderful time we had.

Our weekend was filled with;

lots of riding;



Awesome Trail rides;



Our epic pony games;



and learning to Drive the mini’s.



The weather was beautiful, so to cool off we made sure to fit in a visit to the pond for some swimming and canoeing!



After dinner we all enjoyed games of Prisoner on our new volleyball court,


and each night we ended with a campfire and s’mores!


We really had a blast!! Thank you to the wonderful campers that attended, the awesome ponies for their hard work, and not forgetting our amazing counselors who made the weekend so much fun.


Dates for our fall Riding weekends will be posted mid-summer, so contact us if you would like to join us!

April Riding Weekend
Tuesday, April 10th 2018


We had a wonderful group of campers join us for a long riding weekend. The girls arrived on Thursday and stayed for a fun weekend of Riding, Riding and more Riding!

We worked on our jumping techniques,


dewey poles

and we enjoyed jumping courses and grids, playing pony club games, timed obstacle courses and bareback lessons.

The ponies were wonderful and enjoyed every minute of the attention and grooming they got!

A Busy Weekend at Forrestel
Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Last weekend Forrestel held the first of our February riding weekends. We all had so much fun. Plenty of riding time, flat & jump lessons, pony club games, goat wrangling, kitten snuggling, movies, scrabble and lots of time with friends!



And we are all set to do it all again this weekend, Thursday-Sunday. I cant think of a better way to spend spring break!

Monday afternoon, we hosted a Birthday party for a wonderful group of children. They had a blast decorating their horses and playing pony club games in our indoor arena. They finished off with lots of Birthday cake and ice cream inside the farm house!

The ponies worked hard and as usual were their awesome selves, making a lot of campers and birthday girls very happy. They get a little break today before we start up again for the weekend tomorrow.

If you would like to attend a riding weekend our upcoming dates are April 5-8th and Memorial weekend May 25-28th. Contact us to reserve your place!
