2018 Summer Camps
Does your son or daughter have a passion for horses? Why not let them experience that dream at one of our camp programs. Camps are designed with your child’s riding experience in mind. Children ages 7 and above are welcome to enroll in our camp programs!
These one-week camps are designed with your students riding ability, interests, and goals in mind. The program is based on the students enrolled in each camp so that specific skills can be taught or mastered. If you have any question as to which level your child should register for, please speak with one of our instructors.
Campers will enjoy approximately 2 hours of daily instructed riding. They will also learn elements of several riding disciplines and the responsibilities of horse ownership by participating in:
- Daily horse care
- Equine First Aid
Campers will also participate in:
- Fun mounted games
- Team-building games
