Come join the fun! If you have a horse enthusiastic child in your life, our summer horse camp is for them! 2018 will be our 18th year of camp and we have been fortunate to provide instruction and fun for many riders.

Beginner weeks:  June 25-29 and July 9-13
Intermediate weeks:  July 16-20 and July 23-27

Beginner Riding Camp

Our riding camp is for riders from the ages 7 to 13. Riders will be matched up with a horse for the week and will learn all responsibilities of care for that horse. Lessons include learning to approach a horse, lead, halter and unhalter, how to properly groom a horse, parts of the horse, and learning different equipment needed to ride a horse. Riding lessons will teach the rider to mount/dismount, walk, halt, and some trotting. There will be a maximum of 12 campers per week and a minimum or 6. There will be 3 instructors so there will be a lot of individual attention.

Cost: The cost for camp is $285.00. We need to receive a deposit of $100.00 to hold a spot. You may either do this with a check or call us with a credit card number.

The time is from 10:00am till 2:00pm.

The rider will need to wear long pants and shoes with heels. If your child has her/his own bike helmet you are welcome to use it since it is already fitted, otherwise we will provide a helmet. Drinks and snacks are provided. Please pack a lunch.

The camp is intended to teach each rider responsibility of having a horse. This will be our 17th year of camp and every year has been a great time, we even have riders return year after year. It will be very educational and a lot of fun!
