What Does Your Child Do at Camp Horse Country?
*Our camp days are full of horsy activities and are typically like this:

8:00 Cowgirl/Cowboys in Training, Junior and Senior Interns arrive and help with Horsy Morning Chores.

9:00 Wild West and Horse-Crazy Campers arrive and are signed in by parents. Campers put away lunches, get their equestrian helmets and "Good Morning" carrots and come to Friendship Circle. After Friendship Circle, Barn Buddy Time and Virtual Riding, Campers greet their horses. Then, they set up their Grooming Stations. 

9:45 Groom and Saddle Time

10:30 Snack and Water Break in the Party Barn

10:45 Morning Riding Lesson 

12:15 Lunch Time in the Party Barn

1:00 Virtual Riding, After Lunch - "Bridle-Up" carrots - Time for a Riding Lesson, Trail Ride or Games on Horseback.

3:00 Horsy Care in the barns - Unsaddling, Stall Cleaning, Watering Horses etc.

3:30 Snack and Water Break in the Party Barn

3:45 Goodbye Carrots for all Wild West Camp horses. "Bridle-Up" carrots for Horse-Crazy campers, Cowgirl/Cowboys in Training, Junior and Senior Interns' horses. Wild West campers signed out by parents. Horse-Crazy campers, Cowgirl/Cowboys in Training, Junior and Senior Interns go to Riding Lesson, Trail Ride, Games in one of the arenas.

5:00 Horse-Crazy campers, Cowgirl/Cowboys in Training, Junior and Senior Interns unsaddle and begin helping with Horsy Night Chores.

5:30 Horse-Crazy campers signed out by parents.

6:00 Cowgirl/Cowboys in Training, Junior and Senior Interns help finish Horsy Night Chores and close the farm.

*The first day of each camp session begins with administrative sign-in which takes a bit longer, a farm tour, horse assignments, and horse safety before we begin the grooming and saddling class. Younger children may need more time to prepare their horses. More experienced riders need less time to prepare, so they will have additional hours in the saddle. The last day of camp, campers decorate their horses for the camp show which generally takes place from 1-3PM (or so). Your flexibility as well as your child's is greatly appreciated since this schedule is subject to change depending on barn - camp - horsy conditions.
