Our summer horse camps are for young riders who have had some previous experience riding. Riders are required to already know how to walk/trot (even just starting to learn to trot) before coming to our camps. If our camp group has multiple experience levels, we will split into two groups for some lessons to be sure everyone is getting the best experience possible. Maximum of 10 people at each camp to provide a more one on one experience with the trainers! Ages 10+ welcome! (Under 10 years old but already know how to walk trot? You qualify to attend! Please contact us.) Girls and Boys. Our camps are overnight camps, with ALL meals included.We are now offering camps for ages 18+ too!! Please contact us with any questions!
Activities: We will be playing many mounted games to create balance and more confidence in the saddle. Each evening we'll play field games (ie: mission impossible, tag, hide and seek, etc.) There will be 2-4 hours of riding each day! (Weather permitting as we have no indoor. We reserve the right to call lessons off due to lightning or downpour.) We'll have fires in the evenings and be sleeping in provided tents. Please feel free to bring snacks that DO NOT CONTAIN NUTS.
We have horses available for use (PLEASE contact us to be sure we still have a horse available before registering if you need one) but we encourage people to bring their own horses as it gives GREAT opportunity to work close with trainers and form a stronger bond between horse and rider. If you bring your own horse, please note that you are responsible for bringing the feed they require, see the what to bring list below for more information. Campers are welcome to leave trailers parked in designated area to store hay and tack in.
Horses MUST have vaccinations and be healthy to come to camp. Please leave unruly horses at home. Thank you!
If you are in need of a horse, please let us know ASAP so we can be sure to accommodate you. (horses will be shared with bigger groups, everyone will get equal chance to ride.). We do both ENGLISH and WESTERN riding.
At the end of the camps, there will be a fun show where Ribbons will be awarded to 5th place! The fun show will be gymkhana events (barrel racing, pole bending, etc.), jumping (just small jumps for beginners, and only if they can.), some of our own inventive show classes, as well as some flat classes! So make sure to invite family and friends to bring a lawn chair and come to enjoy the fun! Fun Shows usually start at about 2pm on the last day of the camp, end time is around 5pm.
