Beginner camps are offered to children age 6 through 12. The experienced trainers choose appropriate mounts and riding groups by considering skill, confidence, and size of rider. The campers will ride every day and sometimes twice a day.
Students will participate in mounted games, learning all about their favorite horses, proper grooming techniques, learning how to tack up a horse, and also taught the parts of the horses. Some days we will practice bareback riding! We will have games and activities like painting ponies, bobbing for apples, horse related arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, and learning parts of the horse. Sometimes we get a special visit from a real veterinarian that enjoys teaching the campers how to care for wounds and much more..
We try to make it up to the pool or slip and slide to finish out the day and wash off the horse hair so don’t forget a bathing suit and towel.
The last day of camp we will have horse show for the families to come see what the campers have learned!
Sign up early as camps do fill up quickly.
