Our horse camps offer crafts, horse activities, and lots of riding time. All camps will offer insight into the wonderful world of horses. Your child will have a blast!
The instructors are also certified school teachers and have experience working with children of all ages and ability levels. As teachers, our instructors believe that all children learn best through engaging activities and should have fun achieving successes!
Camps are always a little different from year to year, so returning campers will enjoy some of these changes. There will be several new additions to the herd of camp horse! The camp curriculum will include not only riding and games on horseback but also many educational activities. Our camp curriculum covers fundamentals of horsemanship: anatomy, horse care and safety, horse tack, vet and farrier care, horse nutrition, costs of a horse ownership, and much more.
Camps are for ages 6-18 years of age. Camps will be held from 9:00am - 2:00pm. Campers should bring a bagged lunch and water bottle. Additional horse activities will be provided starting at 8:00am and after camps for $10 per hour or part thereof. This can be helpful for parents that need a more flexible drop-off and pick-up schedule, as well as for children that want to be more involved with behind the scenes action around the farm and continue the fun.
Camp sizes are limited in size to ensure quality instruction, and we anticipate that they will fill quickly., Register early to reserve the camp that best meets your needs!
