Overnight Equestrian Program

2nd-12th grade

Limited space, register early!

We have brought together our 3 Equestrian Programs into 1 great program! Our format will create an even better atmosphere for campers to expand their horsemanship knowledge while having lots of fun! We designed our program for campers who LOVE horses! We added even more ways for riders to spend more time with the horses and gain hands on experience with their care!

From beginners to advanced riders, our program will continue to offer the combination of well instructed English riding lessons focusing on the fundamentals of horse and rider.
Each camper will participate in 45 mins to hour long on-horse lesson aimed at increasing their confidence while advancing their individual skill level. They will be placed in a class with campers of a similar level and work with others to encourage one another.
r Ground classes will be aimed at building the basic knowledge they need in all different areas of horsemanship using a combination of hands on, and fun workbook activities.
Campers will also get to choose other fun options each day like giving a horse a bath, braiding manes, or role playing a horse emergency!
r Our program is designed to give campers at all levels of riding the chance to increase confidence in their abilities and gain new skills.
Our equestrian staff are trained and experienced to teach a wide range of riders. Young beginners play mounted games and get to learn all about their favorite horses, while others may learn to post the trot, or canter. More advanced riders may get to jump over obstacles.
We feel strongly that our campers should not only learn to ride a horse but to grow to have compassion for the animal and understand the responsibilities that come with ownership!
Daily chores, feeding, grooming and cleaning stalls will all be part of the experience. Campers will participate in a fun activity that will help them create a “budget plan” for purchasing tack, food, and stable fees.

On the last day campers can bring their parents and friends to the horse stables to visit the horses.
