Giving Back for Thanksgiving

As all of you know ELPH has a great love for all animals big and small and not just for horses and ponies; dogs and cats have a special spot in our hearts as well. In the spirit of Thanksgiving we really want to give back to the animals. We have all rescued many fur-babies over the years and we know how much our local shelters need help. Animals give us unconditional love no matter what and they deserve the very best from us.

So… ELPH is  doing a “Give Back to the Animals”  fundraiser.  10014547_10152616475317690_3125852392353513689_n

Camp will be for children ages 6 and up. Children will be kept very busy with riding, games on horseback, crafts, barn chores, caring for horses, fun barn games, lessons on horse anatomy and tack.  Weather permitting, we will also go hiking along the trails. If it’s too cold we will watch a horse movie in our cool club lounge while sipping on hot chocolate!
