Mark and Collin with the horses they rode. A few of the kids were thrown off their horses a few times, no injuries but a few bruises. Mark and Collin got the gentle horses and didn't have any trouble with their horse being spooked and were not thrown off.
Collin had a great time riding horses. He said this was the best fed scout camp he has ever been to. They were never hungry and had so much left overs the cowboys burned tons of left over food. The cowboys didn't want to haul anything back down the mountain. They even burned the ice chests and extra blankets. We guess the horses were to tired from hauling boys and men all Summer long up and down the mountain.
Mark said this was fun for the boys learning to ride a horse, BUT the worse run camp he has been to. At times the boys were very bored: no activities planned for the boys . Breakfast was on cowboy time well after 10:00 o'clock, lunch was served so late the boys were not hungry for dinner when it was served. The cowboys complained a lot about having to work with boy scouts and their language was a bit to colorful. Mark will never go back to that camp again as long as he is young men's president.
