Joining Us at the Barn… Meet Shelby!

Hi all! My name is Shelby Jones and I’m from Granite Bay, CA. This is going to be my second summer returning as a staff member. Many of you will remember that I was the F.B.I. cabin counselor last year and this year I will be one of the horseback riding instructors.

I grew up riding in the United States Pony Club and I have trained and competed in Eventing, Show Jumping and Dressage. When I’m not at camp I spend most of my free time at the barn riding and taking care of my new horse, Charlie. Charlie is a retired racehorse that I am currently retraining to be an eventing horse, which has been a very challenging and also rewarding process. Horses are my life passion and I’m very excited to share all that I can with you all while I’m at camp.

I can’t wait to be back at Coppercreek this summer. I’ve missed making friendship bracelets, singing stand up songs, paddle boarding, canoeing and most of all my friends from camp.

Joining Us from the UK… Meet Lucy!

Hello everyone! My name is Lucy and I’m from a small town called Tavistock in the UK. This is my first trip to America and I’m so excited to meet everyone at Coppercreek! I love animals and I am currently studying Equine Science and Business at University. I can’t wait to get stuck in at the barn.
When I am not playing ponies, I love to go to the beach to spend time with my family and play fetch with the dogs! I enjoy most sports, especially if they are outside, and taking photographs of the animals on the farm where I live.
I did many Pony Club and Brownie camps as a child and I want to make sure that everyone has as much fun as I did. See you all very soon 🙂
