                                                    Happy Camper

HORSE DAY CAMP


 Campers will enjoy learning how to ride and handle horses in a small group setting so that plenty of individual attention can be given to each rider and their horse.  Each camper will be assigned a horse to work with for the entire camp. They will learn how to care for their needs, brush and bathe, saddle and ride their horse. 

 

Dates for 2016

 

June 13-17

 

July 25-29

 

August 1-5

 

Camp fee $325 per session

 

 

 

What to Expect: 

 

With keeping our groups small we can offer much more personal attention to each rider.
Many facets of horse care will be covered and they include:

 

 

  • feeding and cleaning stalls
  • grooming
  • safely working around horses 
  • tacking up
  • care of tack
  • ground-work
  • riding

 

 

Natural riding--using the entire body to steer, stop, and start a horse using an understanding of the horse’s mind to communicate in a way it understands ...is the way we begin all our young riders.

During break times, campers will have an opportunity to have a drink and snack. Lunch and swimming will be at the end of the day at the owners pool.

 

 Ages 7 & up

 

Drop off time- No earlier than 8:30 a.m.
