The week-long 1/2 day camp at Maple Ridge Stables was a wonderful experience for my grandchildren, Jack and Lily! Here are some photos of their final day there. Thank you Miss Penny and staff!!!
Jack (11) and Lily (8) loved their first day at morning week-long horse camp with Miss Penny and staff! (Even in the rain!!!)

I am currently looking for host families for some experienced riders (and exchange students) for the fall.

All of these students love horses, and will come with their own health insurance and spending money. A host family is responsible for providing caring guidance, a room and quiet place to study, and meals at home.

Her grandmother and uncle live next door. She says she has a great relationship with her family but she rarely sees her dad as he is living in Italy, and her parents are going through a divorce right now. Giulia enjoys swimming, horse back riding (her mom is a therapeutic horse trainer), gymnastics, doing her makeup, hanging out with her friends, playing the piano, and dancing. When she hangs out with her friends they enjoy watching movies. She says she has lots of friends in Spain but her very best friend lives in Italy.

Giulia wants to thank her future host family for taking the time to consider her and for possibly giving her this amazing experience

🇪🇸🐴⛷🏐🏕 Carlota (Spain) will be 16 when she arrives in the U.S.. She lives with her parents and has an older brother, and a little sister who is 11. Her family is Catholic and they attend church on a weekly basis. A lot of things about Carlota make her a great choice of student for the midwest. She enjoys volleyball, skiing, horseback riding, and camping. She is not afraid of the cold or being outdoors! She actually really loves the outdoors and feels at peace in the woods. Carlota is excited to come to a new country and make lasting memories and relationships. When she is not outside, she loves to read, and to listen to music. She often walks around singing, which may or may not bring joy to those who hear her, but music makes her happy! She likes to cook and has been trying to sharpen her skills and learn how to make more kinds of food to share with her future host family. She is a good student and knows that grades are important, so she does her homework without being asked. Her father and brother have both come to the U.S. on exchange, and she is really excited to continue the family tradition. Like most Spaniards, she is pretty family oriented and will love any family who welcomes her as one of their own.
