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 before coming to our camps. Maximum of 10 people at each camp to provide a more one on one experience with the trainers! Ages 8+ welcome! 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 confident riders. Each evening we'll play field games (ie: mission impossible, tag, hide and seek, etc.) There will be 3-5 hours of riding each day! (Weather permitting as we have no indoor) We'll have fires in the evenings and be sleeping in the hayloft where we will watch Horse movies :) Please note - there is NO hay in the hayloft! So if you have allergies to hay, don't worry!
We have horses available for use 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. (Horses MUST have shots and be healthy to come to camp)
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 Rosette 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! T-shirts and orders for DVD slideshows of camp will be for sale at the fun show - along with a door prize! 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 1pm on the last day of the camp.
