Riding at Ramey Summer Camp by Brittany Ross
I liked the fact that Ms. Ramey had you do most everything for yourself.
As a college freshman who doesn't have much riding experience, it was hard for me to find a riding camp that accepted people older than 16 years of age. After doing much research, I finally
found Ms. Ramey's riding camp who didn't put an age limit on who could attend. I was a tad
hesitant on going, considering I'm a very reserved and have never been away from home entirely by myself before. Yet it had been three and a half years since I had anything to do with a horse
and I wanted to see if my passion for horses and riding was still in me.
I chose to go the week after Christmas, and the first day I was there, I took a evaluation ride. I
was shocked at how much I had retained from my riding lessons taken years before. In the days that followed, Ms. Ramey gave instruction two times a day. By the last day, she had me riding
almost at the level I was when I stopped the first time. But, to be completely honest, my riding was the least important aspect of what I took from that trip. Ms. Ramey's barn manager was out
one day, and the two of us together took care of the chores.
Here I was, having only ridden horses never taken care of them, and I was helping tend to over
20 horses. It was an awesome experience. I learned so much about myself and had such a sense of accomplishment from just that alone. I liked the fact that Ms. Ramey had you do most
everything for yourself. I found out what it'd really be like to own a horse, the immense time, effort, and money that goes into them.
I realized that I loved to take care of them, and to have one involved in my life, I didn't have to
just ride them. A lot of pride goes into simply keeping a horse happy and healthy. As stubborn and pouty as I was occasionally during my week, I was surprised how Ms. Ramey remained
patient with me and I'm thankful. Aside from her camp being a wonderful experience, she is a wonderful hostess and excellent teacher of not only riding, but life as well.
