WHO IS THIS CAMP FOR: Beginner, Novice, or Intermediate riders

 

 

 

 

 

SPACE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED to allow for a personalized experience for all riders and our website will automatically show as “sold out” as soon as we hit our maximum, so don’t hesitate to reserve your spot! The number of campers we are allowing per day will be less than previous camps to allow for a much more personal and individualized learning experience.

This particular camp is open to riders that range from complete beginner to intermediate riders ages 6-14. Participants will be broken into age, size and ability groups and will have the option of working with either a miniature horse, pony or a full-size horse depending on what is appropriate and safest for them depending on their age, size and experience level so that they get the most out of their camp experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If notified in advance we can be flexible about an earlier or later drop off and pick up of children in order to accommodate parents work schedules, but an additional fee may be incurred. SPACE IS LIMITED.

In addition to paying here, be sure to click here and fill out our official registration form so that we have all the necessary information on your camper if you haven’t already!

Please print out our waiver and bring it signed on the day of the camp.

  • Sturdy boot or shoe with a heel to ride in

  • Extra layers (sweatshirt, jacket, extra socks, gloves, etc.)
  • Warm jacket just in case it is chilly
  • Riding or biking helmet (we have some on hand, but this is very limited and we cannot gaurantee that we will have one for your child. They MUST wear a helmet in order to ride.)
  • Lunch

  • A good attitude!

WHAT TO EXPECT:

EQUINE EDUCATION: We will take time to discuss equine feed and nutrition, how much hay a horse eats per day, and other types of food horses eat and need.

FARM CHORES: They will learn about about cleaning horse stalls top to bottom, re-filling water buckets, re-filling hay nets and preparing grain and supplements for each horse and pony for the next feeding.

ARTS AND CRAFTS: They will have the opportunity to do a fun crafting activity related to horses. This activity could be anything from decorating horse shoes (that they will be able to take home and keep as a memento), making stall signs for their favorite horse they rode that day, painting a pony, and more!

GROOMING: They will learn to properly use each grooming tool and groom a horse from top to bottom.

MASSAGE & TOUCH THERAPY: They will learn the basics of how to stretch and massage horses and create a bond and friendship with them during this process.

RIDING EDUCATION:

  • They will learn (or review if they already know) how to tack up those horse or pony.
  • How to get on and off your horse safely.
  • Asking your horse or pony to stop, go, turn and back up.
  • Learning an “emergency stop” and the situations that may require it.
  • Working on the gait transitions. Walk, trot, canter (if ready) and whoa.
  • Going over/through obstacles, or depending on ability and experience, working over small jumps.
  • Fun obstacles will also be set up to ride over and through in order to challenge their hand and eye coordination and bond more with their horse or pony.
  • We will set up games and activities to be played from horseback to promote skill development while also having fun!

If everybody is doing well on their horse or pony the instructors may take them on a short trail ride through our beautiful trails and woods, weather permitting.
