Young Riders Heading to Camp Sunday, June 17th

The Southern Winds Equestrian Camp starts Sunday, June 17th at Broxton Bridge Plantation. The camp has enrolled 26 young riders from Medicine Wind, Rose Court Farms, and other local stables. Rose Court Farms will be sending five campers and seven horses.  Instructor Lindsey Loppnow will be running the camp, along with Hailey Little and Elizabeth (Liz) Irwin.

Broxton Bridge Plantation, nestled on the Salkehatchie River, is located just south of Walterboro, SC in a town called Ehrhardt. Campers will enjoy trail riding, swimming, campfires, daily riding lessons and resting in the 18th century plantation house.

Daily activities include arts and crafts, lessons, trail rides, swimming, camp fires complete with s'mores, demonstrations, and class time. The girls will also compete in a private horse show with all the ribbons of an open show. 

The Rose Court Farms barn girls would like to thank David Heller and Mary Darby Cutts for creating a fund to provide assistance for camp, and Rob Browning for hauling everyone with their horses, gear, hay, and food to camp. Also, the girls would like to thank Roger West for volunteering to cook for the week as camp chef. You all helped make it possible! 

The Rose Court Farms campers include Madi Cutts, Rachel West, Sarah Hudock, Abigail Rath, and Becca Clayton. The horses attending include Nelly, Peanut, Lily, Shug, Cheyenne, Nina, and Kharma. 

We'll be gathering at the barn at noon and hauling out around 1:00 to take the campers and the horses to camp. I'm telling you this so you can make your own decision to either come and wish the campers well, or, if you prefer, stay away from all the fuss and get in a more quiet ride earlier or later.  

You can check out more pictures from last year and see the soon-to-be coming new pictures from this year at the camp's Facebook page.
