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.   

 

Horsemanship Camps:

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 12 riders.  Helmets are available to rent ($2. per day) if you do not have your own.

 

Mini Camps:

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.

 

Advanced Camp:

This camp is recommended for those at the Novice and Advanced levels, ages 8 and older.  Riders must be able to canter confidently to attend this camp.  You will be assigned a horse/pony for the week (or bring your own).  The focus will be on having fun and setting goals for ourselves and “our” horse.   Deb Schiller will join us again this year for part of the camp.   We are planning on going to a show the Saturday after camp.(Showing costs apply)  While you don’t have to compete at the Saturday show, we would encourage you to plan on spending the day as a group helping/watching.     Crafts and afternoon swimming are offered some days.   Riders must have their own helmets and boots.
