a UNIQUE CAMP EXPERIENCE
All daily lessons and activities are specifically designed for children facing , developmental
physical or emotional challenges, and for typically developing children. No experience with horses is necessary to fully enjoy our summer camp. Over the 8 week-long sessions, our Summer Camp offers children 4 years and older an excellent introduction to horses and riding in a safe and nurturing environment. The day starts at 9AM and ends at 2PM.
We promote independence, self-confidence, team building and socialization through daily riding lessons, horsemanship activities (grooming, tacking, and leading), learning about horses and basic horse care, arts and crafts, games, and trail rides.
LEARNING MADE FUN
Your child will learn and practice basic riding skills, safety awareness around horses, and how to groom and take care of a horse. Arts and crafts, games, and activities are designed to teach the campers about horse etiquette and safety, horse breeds, colors, markings and conformation all while keeping them active and happy throughout their day at camp. Extended hours are available for a nominal fee when scheduled with Camp Director.
