Horse Summer Camps

Each day begins with an hour long riding lesson. Throughout the week, beginner students can expect to learn proper equitation, how to walk, halt, steer and trot.  More experienced riders can expect to work on refining their equitation both at the trot and canter, adding in poles and small jumps.

Another goal of our camp is for everyone who attends to have fun. We will spend afternoons playing games that include our horses. We will also be completing arts and crafts projects and eating ice cream daily. We will end the week with a party.
