Summer Camp

2021 Dates are here!

We are going to offer a variety of camps this year. We will have several more camps but some will be devoted to advanced riders, some will be half day camps for those that might not want to be here all day, and then the regular all-day camp. Advanced camps will involve more advanced riding and having guest speakers such as a veterinarian, farrier, horse massage therapist, professional trainer, trick riding demonstration, barrel racing demonstration and more. 

We are also considering adding an advanced half camp/clnic for adults who want 3 solid days of working with their horse on any problem issues as well as enhancing their knowledge and horsemanship skills

If a camp does not fill up, then we will combine it with another camp. Please let us know your first and second choice for dates.

Please have your child in riding clothes when they arrive to camp and have them apply sun screen before they arrive. This helps us get on the horses faster when it’s still nice and cool.

We are so excited that y’all decided to join us for camp!! We are looking forward to tons of fun!

What to Expect at Camp:

We ride first thing in the morning when it is the coolest part of the day. The children will be divided into two groups according to their riding ability.

 

One group will have a 1 hour mounted lesson while the other group has an instructed ground lesson. The lessons are tailored to the children’s current knowledge and skills.

 

After both groups have ridden the horses, horses will be untacked and washed down to cool off. The children will do most of the tacking and untacking with help from volunteers/instructors when needed. After that we take a one hour lunch to let the kids cool off. We normally watch horse movies during this time or play on the trampoline.

 

After lunch we do our bareback ride. This is normally games on horseback and the kids have a lot of fun while also improving their balance and horsemanship skills. This is a shorter ride (around 30 minutes due to the heat) afterwards horses are hosed down again. Once horses are cared for we do a group learning activity. Examples are lounging a horse, counting distances between jumps, learning how to assemble bridles, and polo wrapping. Afterwards if we have time we may do an art project. At the end of the day the children are given a snack and they cool off in the kiddie pool. Then we have them change into dry clothes so they are ready to pick up and play games until your arrival.
