Summer Camp 2019
Riding a horse is one of the most exciting things to do, but learning to understand how horses think, play and act is super thrilling too!! Our horse program is designed to provide a variety of fun horse experiences for campers...from horseback riding to ground skills and the knowledge of a horseman!
Campers will be divided into groups based on skills to ensure each camper gets the appropriate coaching they need to be safe and improve on skills while at camp. Each group will rotate through 3 stations:
(1) Horse care class will cover topics such as feeding, nutrition, grooming, saddling, horse anatomy, saddle/bridle parts, breeds, colors, knot tying, horse safety and much more! Fun games will keep things exciting!!
(2) Understanding horses starts on the ground, our ground skills class will focus on safely handling horses by building trust, respect, and communications through natural horsemanship techniques.
(3) Riding classes will cover a variety of riding styles and safety. Campers will be able to experience riding through obstacle courses, bareback, english, western, jumping and vaulting basics. Campers will learn to control their horses at the walk and trot, and canter for those who are ready. All challenges will be appropriate to the skill level of the rider, and safety and fun will be our key focus!
Campers should arrive dressed to ride, in long pants and smooth soled shoes (boots preferred) and bring a bandanna to wear under their helmet. All other riding equipment (including helmets) is provided.
Camp sessions will run from 8:30am - 12pm and/or 1:30pm - 5pm, Monday-Friday. Afternoon campers will be in the shade, to avoid some intensity of the heat. Each session is limited to 12 participants, so message today to sign up and reserve your spot!
