If you have a child who thinks they want a horse, now is your chance for them to learn what is involved. 

Join us for this delightful experience that includes grooming, riding lessons, bathing, cleaning tack, learning about breeds and colors, participating in barn chores, and cooling off with a swim.

FAQ: 

Should my child choose horse lessons or horse camp?
*During horse lessons a student does learn to groom a horse along with the private one-on-one instruction. 
*At horse camp, the lessons may include groups. Campers learn to groom a horse, learn and practice riding safety and skills, plus feed horses, clean stalls, paddock and tack room, soap and oil saddles and bridles, and bathe a horse. Campers also have time to study the different breeds of horses, colors, and markings, and other areas they may have interest with horses.

Suggested ages 
We have a small horse and taller horses. So children of any age that are looking for a pony and are afraid of tall horses may not be suitable. Sometimes we can help them overcome that fear of the size, but that depends on the child. Seven years and up are suggested ages, but younger children without the size fear do quite well.

Will a waiver need to be signed?
A waiver must be signed for this camp and parents must carry medical insurance on their child.

WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR
  • Closed toe shoes are needed for the horse activities. 
  • Pants and socks are also best to wear. 
  • In summer, send a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen for the pool.  Or, you can put on sunscreen before coming to camp as that will help during the horse activity time.
  • Please send a lunch/snack and water bottle marked with your child's name.
