Summer Horseback Riding Day Camps!
Our 2013 summer day camps are right around the corner! Each session runs Monday thru Friday, 9 AM to 1 PM. Cost is $250, with a $50 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your spot. Boys and Girls Ages 6 - 15. No previous riding experience required. Enrollment is limited and on a first come first serve basis.
Children will learn how to safely lead, groom, saddle, bridle, and untack a horse. They will receive a daily group horseback riding lesson. We also do a fun craft project every day. Kids will learn basic horse and stable care (examples; how to clean tack, feeding, cleaning stalls ect.) Campers will partake in mounted horseback riding games ( egg and spoon race, barrel pattern, ect.) and an obstacle course. Children should pack a lunch, we have a refrigerator available to keep drinks cold. A show will be held for parents on the final day of camp so the campers can show off what they've learned over the week.
