The Princess Pat
Lived in a tree
She sailed across
The seven seas
She sailed across
The Channel, too
And brought with her
Speaking of Princess…This week we said good-bye to one of the horses, Princess, who moved to Arkansas. Princess came to Camp Horizons in the Fall of 2008 and planned to only stay one summer but loved camp life so much (especially the jumping and trail rides she stayed on) that she stayed a while. But Princess’ owner missed her too much and found a new barn for her to live in that is filled with new friends to make.
Princess, thank you for all your lessons (even the really fast ones) and Camp Horizons wishes you all the best in your new home!
