Please let Sara or Jessica know if you are interested in participating, and based on the number of people, we will either have a wine night here at Gypsy Farms, or head over to a local place for some appetizers and drinks. We are hoping to plan this before Thanksgiving weekend. We look forward to getting to know you all!

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 have a small mini fridge and microwave available for your child’s convenience at lunch time. 

 

On Friday the campers will be competing against each other in a horse show. Parents are welcome to attend. Feel free to reach out to Jessica and she will give you an estimate of the time your child will be competing.

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.
