Medallion Rider

My favorite awards ceremony so far this year took place at the last flag-raising of the first session. As a total surprise the entire riding staff rode down to the Ampitheatre before the flag was raised to present the Medallion Rider awards. This has not been given since 2007, so it was a really big deal. Medallion Rider recognizes excellence in riding and excellence in attitude as well as a superior level of didactic knowledge about riding. Two campers were recognized...

Each girl received a special tee shirt and certificate acknowledging her accomplishment. Their names will also be engraved on the permanet Medallion Rider board mounted in the Dining Hall.
The girls then mounted their horses and rode off...not to applause that might have spooked their horses, but rather to the fluttering of over 200 Red Pine camper hands!
