Daily horseback riding – from 2 to 5 hours a day in the saddle. We ride in the arenas, in the corrals and on the trails.  Length of riding time depends on the camp program you choose.

 

Ground School – Learn to groom and saddle and how to handle a horse on the ground, including cleaning the hooves.


 

Horse Care – Learn to feed, how to clean tack, clean stalls, and take horses to their paddocks or pastures.


 

Games and Horsy Activities – on the ground and in the saddle.


 

Horse-Shoeing Demonstration - our kid-friendly horseshoer welcomes your questions.


 

Friday Horse Show with ribbons, trophies and awards.


 

Safe and positive environment.

 

Friendship circles, team-building activities and barn buddies.


 

Small classes - limited enrollment.
