    Click for a basic outline of what we will be doing during the week!

      Four days of absolute fun in a safe, wholesome and supportive environment where campers experience adventure while building character and confidence. The instruction and activities at this camp will challenge and improve each campers riding skills. Lessons emphasize communication using the four natural aids to control the horse. We focus on developing the proper body alignment, balance, independent seat in each rider. Fully supervised, individual attention and foremost of all, safety is foundational, where we aim to produce competent riders who appreciate and practice with intelligence and competence, all aspects of sound horsemanship. Campers will learn through fun and meet new friends! We believe that horses are good for people and if properly educated, people can be good for horses! We find that lessons learned working with horses help develop skills that last a lifetime.
      For the seriously "horse crazy", we highly recommend two or more sessions. Subsequent lessons will foster a closer union between horse and handler. The first week of camp is very active in their learning stages of new things, with goals that are designed for each class that builds on one another. This gives the student self confidence in accomplishment with every lesson and a greater sense of responsibility.

      What Each Camper Will Need To Bring:
      • Sunscreen (Please apply before drop - off)
      • Water games attire
      • Towel
