The highlight of the end of last term for Class Six was undoubtedly our Horse Camp with McCormack Trail Rides. The students loved the opportunity to further develop their appreciation of horses, or to experience what it means to ride and care for a horse for the first time. More than one student (and teacher) found that they became much more comfortable with these large animals over the course of the three days. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the students as they rode winding steep trails in the rain and harassed the trial ride staff to let them go faster. The simple rustic accommodation and the location of the camp at Buttercup Creek, combined with a viewing of ‘The Man from Snowy River’, gave the students a real experience of the relationship that horses have had with people and the landscape of the high country in this area’s recent history. Deb, Bruce, and their staff provided an excellent experience for the students which we thank them for.
