Children in Bodden Town are learning to ride, take care of, and be safe around horses at Cowboy Town Stables’ “Summer at the Barn” horse camp.

On Wednesday, a group of campers were learning the ropes of feeding, cleaning, setting up the arena, housekeeping, grooming and saddling, all before jumping on a horse.

Emily Barton, on vacation from Texas with her family, said she was having lots of fun.

“I love horses and animals, and being at the horse camp means a lot to me,” she said. She helped feed the horses and clean out the stables.

The camp is designed for children of all abilities.
