Biggins Stable Offers Summer Camp



Openings are still available for Biggins Stable Summer Camp '03, which will be held June 16-21 at the farm in Simpsonville, Ky., near Louisville. The annual riding camp, known for its quality instruction, attracts junior exhibitor saddle seat riders of all skill levels, from all over the country.

Intensive riding instruction is the central focus of the Biggins Summer Camp. Coordinators Renee Biggins and Missy Hughes tailor the program to the ability and needs of each individual rider. Beginners through advanced riders can sharpen their horsemanship and showmanship skills on a wide variety of horses including several five-gaited Saddlebreds. All participants benefit from the accumulated knowledge and experience of instructors who have produced numerous world champions.

In addition to the equitation instruction, campers have the opportunity to learn equine management as they assume care of one horse for the week. Basic grooming and show ring preparation, such as braiding and clipping are covered. Tail braiding and the application of leg bandages and tail sets are other skills participants have the opportunity to master. Other educational activities include harnessing and driving sessions and visits from a veterinarian and a farrier. This year's camp also includes a field trip.

Regular lessons are suspended for the week, so that campers have the run of the farm.

Biggins summer campers work hard, but they also play hard. The daily riding, grooming, and educational sessions still leave ample time for trail riding, swimming, and bareback riding. Evening activities include barbecues and a hayride, as well as an evening with a speaker. The week culminates in a fun show, where campers can demonstrate their newly acquired riding and grooming skills.

Biggins Summer Camp '03 offers full board and overnight accommodations and also has openings for day campers. Please contact Renee Biggins or Missy Hughes to make reservations or for more information.
