Summer Camp

Today was yet another delightful experience volunteering at Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center.  Today was especially empowering because I had the unique opportunity to observe our younger generation volunteering and mentoring students at summer camp!  I typically volunteer with the Horses for Heroes program on Wednesday's, however, it has been moved to another time to accommodate the busy summer schedule.

As always, with summer comes trusty old summer camps and all the chaos, fun, and camaraderie along with it.  Hearts Summer Horse Experience is in full swing and brought back fond memories of the old Raintree Ranch Summer Camp days. Hannah and I used to attend, work at, and then instruct Raintree Summer Camps.  I fondly remember being impressed by our instructors and then impressing upon the next generation of students the same knowledge and experience that had been passed down to us. It reminded me of the evolution in which student becomes teacher and how quintessential it is to instruct our students with the same passion and knowledge that we hope for them to pass on someday.

That is why today was so special for me; I was able to see the same camaraderie, mentoring, and edification that I found to be such a valuable experience growing up.  I was thoroughly impressed with our local youth who volunteer at Hearts today.  Their commitment to improving both themselves and the campers socially and morally is something to be admired.

More Bubbles Please....

Did you know that Bardsley's grooming products are cosmetic grade?  Each product is gentle enough to use on our own children yet strong enough to use on the dirtiest horse in your pasture!  

The Bardsley Team has grown up using each product not only in our wash rack but our shower as well.  And to put it to the true test, we've used our products on our most prized possessions, our children - also known as VP of Sales and the Bardsley advertising team! 

Our products are mild, calming, emulsifying and at the same time effective and smell fantastic.  We trust these products on the most tender skin to the grimiest coat.

Supporting Our Local Pony Club

Bardsley Products, Inc. is proud to announce our very own Devon Sachey is instructing with the local Santa Barbara, CA Tecelote Pony Club!  Devon has come full circle with Tecelote Pony Club as she is a former member, achieving the rating of C-1.  

"It has been such a pleasure to be involved with Pony Club again, especially the very club I attended as a young rider.  It's an amazing opportunity for youth to develop character and confidence with a true understanding for the care and safety of horses.  To be able to mentor these young riders and see their growth as equestrians and young adults is such a treat."
