My DD is obsessed with horses. She has been for as long as I can remember. This year she pleaded her case and my XH said we should put her in Horse riding camp for a couple weeks. He'd pay for a week and I'd pay for the other. My mom took pity on my wallet and ended up paying for "my" week. Camp is VERY expensive hense why we took only 2 weeks
I understand that horse back riding is a nice sport and all and the camp is a small ranch, well organized, small groups, DD gets private lessons , they educate the kids A LOT on everything that has to do with horses they also ride and tend the horses but at $400 a week I'm flabergasted. Horse camps are far and few between and all run in the same price range.
My husband (DD"s step father) is outraged that, that kind of money is being spent on a camp for a 10 year old he says it's a waste of money. I'm not dissagreing 100%. I'm glad DD gets to live her dream, she is clearly thriving there and loving it but I must say that for the same amount (given the fact that my mom paid for my share) I booked DD 4 weeks of private themed camp near our house for the rest of the summer.
