Our creative summer equestrian riding camp program provides extensive riding and lesson time. Days are filled with horse activities geared towards developing riders into accomplished horsewomen. Unlike other horse camps we want to ensure that your child will learn the ropes from the ground up, and not simply have time in the saddle.
Our camp teaches you the reality and responsibility of managing the daily care of your horse - such as, what to do during and how to recognize equine emergencies, how to administer vaccines & medications - general medical care, horse ground-up training, horse games.
Our riding lessons use methods of natural horsemanship and will help develop balance, coordination and the imperative communication between your child and her horse.
"There are only two emotions that belong in the saddle; one is a sense of humor and the other is patience." ~ John Lyons
