Overnight Equestrian Program

2nd-12th grade

Limited space, register early!


Come join us at camp for an exciting week full of horses and fun! Campers will expand their horsemanship knowledge while enjoying time with friends!

Our Equestrian Program creates 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 minutes to an 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 in all different areas of horsemanship using a combination of hands-on, and fun workbook activities.
Campers will also get to choose other exciting 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, 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 also to grow, 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 and useful 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.
