Summer camp

Saddle Up For SUMMER CAMP is designed to take full advantage of all things equine! This is a week long, full day program where children ages 6-13 will be able to quickly progress not only their riding skills and knowledge of horse care, they will have invaluable social interaction with peers and experience a range of outdoor activities.

Each day the participants will have a 1 hour adaptive riding lesson, 1 hour horsemanship and horse care, as well as other activities that will promote creativity, exploring, team work and active living. Activities may include creative horse art, painting on a REAL horse, human jumper and human dressage courses, water play, trail hikes, fishing and so much more! Don't wait to register as spots are limited!
