  • Riding everyday (many times we do multiple rides per day)
  • Safety around the horses
  • Parts of the horse

  • Nutrition of a horse
  • How to lunge a horse

WHAT MAKE US DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER LOCAL CAMPS IS THAT TEACH IN  SMALLER GROUPS, SO YOUR CAMPER WILL GET ONE ON ONE INSTRUCTION. SAFER AND MORE PERSONALIZED.

*We highly suggest, but do not require, the student come to at least 2 lessons at the farm with their parents present before the first day of camp. This will help make them comfortable with being left in our care.

REGISTRATION DETAILS

All Camps must have a minimum of three students to run and can have up to 8 students maximum.

To sign up for Summer Camp please email, call or talk to us at your next lesson. We will make sure you receive the camp registration form. When signing up please give your first and second choice. We will try to get you into your first choice. If only one camp is going to work for you, please let us know that too.

A $50 non-refundable deposit will hold your spot in a camp. Yet, if the camp you signed up for doesn’t run and you cannot make it to any other camp dates, you will be refunded your $50.

 

Two types of Children’s Camps available.

4 DAY CAMP:

Dates Offered: None

Camp will be one day per week for the month of July. This is a great way to spread out the summer fun! Learn how to care for a horse, how to ride and do many fun activities with and about horses!! The students will have a horse show the last 1.5 of the last Wednesday.

2 DAY CAMP: 

Dates offered: Camp #2 – July 19th (Tuesday) and July 22nd (Friday) – FULL

Camp #3 – August 2nd (Tuesday) and August 3rd (Wednesday) – Closed

Camp #4 – August 16th (Tuesday) and August 18th (Thursday)

Times: 9:00A – 4:30P          Cost: $295 per student

These will have all the same activities as the 4 day camp, but they will be held longer for only two days. Often this is an easier schedule for parents to commute to the farm. Horse show will be held the last 1.5 hours of the second day.

(If you don”t see any camps that will work out for you and your family, remember we will also be offering Day at the Farm sessions all summer. These are a one day/3 hour mini camp for up to 6 students. The cost of this program is $85 per rider.)
