You should go horseback riding at Camp Gilgal. When you go horseback riding, first you need a helmet. If you get on a horse, you need a saddle. To steer a horse, you need reigns. When you go horseback riding you go through a little stream and then go up and down hill. There is a shop to buy candy, t-shirts, hats, and sweat shirts. There are lots of horses to see. After horseback riding there is a stream to play at and a rock that you can climb and sit on. There is another rock that has a crack in it because it split into two rocks. My horses name was Monarch. When I went there this year there was snow. Also, you need to cross the stream to get to the snow. Horses use their tails to whack off flies on their backs. Also, they twist their necks to get off the flies. They shake their body and stomp their feet to get rid of flies. Ryan said, “Horseback riding is a blast!” A cowboy will help you to get on the horse and to get off. I think horseback riding is one of the best things at Camp Gilgal.
