Now, as an adult, not only does she still have a passion for horses, along with years of knowledge and experience, she also has a heart for working with kids. When an opportunity came up to combine her two passions, it only made sense for Sakrismo to fulfill a lifelong dream and open up a horse camp for kids. With the help of Cavalier County Job Development Association and Cavalier Rural Electric Association, Sakrismo was able to, proudly, open the doors of Triple H Ranch last month.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to present such a new and unique camp to the town of Langdon and surrounding areas. It’s a chance for kids to experience the outdoors, camp, go horseback riding and so much more. I am excited to share my passions with the upcoming generations and let them find out what true camping is all about, “ commented Sakrismo.
Throughout the summer, the ranch, located north of Langdon on highway 55, will host several one-night camps for up to 15 kids to attend per night. During the camps, the kids will get a chance to not only work with one of the seven horses on the ranch, but also participate in several outdoor activities, including; games, scavenger hunts and campfires. Sakrismo’s goal for the camps is to show kids how important and fun physical activity is, while also sharing with them her love for horses. On the day of the camps, the campers will arrive at 4:30 p.m. and be picked up the following day at 3:00 p.m. Meals, snacks, and tents will be provided by the camp. Several volunteers will be at each camp with Sakrismo to help keep things as safe and fun as possible. The cost to attend one of the camps is $125 per child. The camp dates are as followed, June 27 through 28 for ages five to seven; June 28 through 29 for ages eight to ten; and July 11 through 12 for ages eleven and up. Along with the camps, Triple H Ranch has much more to offer the community; group or individual lessons, barrel racing lessons, horse boarding, guided trail rides, and therapeutic riding lessons. Sakrismo would like to thank the community for their support thus far and welcomes everyone out to enjoy the horses or to take part and volunteer on the ranch.
