Video – Horse & Pony Stables

The horse program began in the early 60’s and ran for about 10 years.  Below is a view of the ponies grazing behind the Ranger area. The stables were set back about 200 feet from the river  and were accessible along a path that met the original bridge.

The Pony Carousel – as shown in the second camp brochure.  ca. 1960.  Trivia: Bert received the carousel and a stagecoach as settlement on a debt.

Here’s a video from 1967 showing the carousel in action:

The photos below are from 1961 – 1964 and show horses on the circular trail around the stables. The first photo shows Barbara Collins (stable manager) riding with a camper:
