June 18 thru 21st - Intro Camp:

A very popular camp for riders who have just started riding or who have never ridden before.  Campers will be introduced to all aspects of riding from stable management and caring for “their” horse to riding.  Each day of camp will include riding, crafts, horse related games and stable skills.  Campers will also meet an industry professional, such as a farrier, dentist or vet.  This camp is recommended for riders ages 6-15 at the limited or beginner level.  Staff ratio will be one helper for each four campers.  Helmets are available to rent at $2. per day, if you do not have your own.   

 

June 25th & 26th - Mini Camp:

Mini Camp is designed for young riders, ages 4-8.  Information will be very basic, with a real emphasis on fun.  Each day will include grooming, riding and a craft, plus basic barn skills.   A small snack will be provided.   Staff ratio will be one helper for each two campers.  Helmets will be provided.

 

July 9th thru 13th - Horsemanship Camp:

This amazing camp is for “horse crazy” students 7 years and older.  Camp will be geared to any level rider who wants to work on their horsemanship skills.   We will work on both mounted and unmounted skills-from grooming, show prep, first aid and bathing a horse to riding.   Also included will be classroom time, barn management, including feeding and stall cleaning.   This will be a fairly intense week for students who wish to improve all areas of their horsemanship.  Riders are expected to groom, clean up after and feed “their” horse for the week.  Also included in the week will be a farm project.    Expect to make lots of 2 legged friends and one very special 4 legged friend.   Riding time will include at least a 1 hour lesson each day.   We will also play games on horses, participate in unmounted games and enjoy horse related crafts and activities.   Horsemanship camp is suggested for students who may want to enter our work program, and riders who can’t seem to get enough of horses.   Friday am will be devoted to preparing your horses for a riding demonstration for family members at 11:00am.  Camp is limited to 16 riders.  Group will be split to ride.  Helmets are available to rent ($2. per day) if you do not have your own.

 

July 19th & 20th - Unmounted/Handling Camp:

This camp is designed for those (ages 4 and up) who would like to develop their unmounted handling skills.  From beginners to those who have worked around horses for years, this camp will be packed full of valuable information and opportunities to practice with quiet educated horses, miniature horses and ponies.  Learn to bath, groom, lead and lunge.   We will personalize information so that each camper is learning at the level that they are currently at.  Campers should wear sturdy boots (no sneakers or flip flops) and bring riding or work gloves and a riding helmet (needed when lunging), if you have one.   We have helmets that you can borrow for this camp.   Camp will be held from 9am to 12 noon.

 

Two weeks of Advanced Camps:

July 30th thru August 3rd and

August 13th thru 17th

This camp is organized for those at the Advanced level, ages 9 and older.   Riders must be able to canter confidently and jump a small course to attend this camp.   Bring your own horse or ride one of ours.   The focus will be on having fun, mounted games and learning advanced skills both mounted and unmounted.   Each camp will be limited to 8 riders.  Mostly we will have fun, hang out with horses and have fun!!  Crafts and afternoon water games are also scheduled.  Riders must have their own helmet and boots.
