Explore Day Camp
Explore Day Campers will spend an hour each day in “The Outback”, where they will take part in horse care lessons, go horseback riding, and interact with our petting farm animals. Over the course of the week, campers registered for a 5-day session will have the opportunity to ride four times, and campers registered for a 4-day session will have the opportunity to ride three times. Campers are taught to safely lead their horse and to start, stop, and steer their horses while on a walk. This introductory program builds confidence in riders.
Extreme Day Camp & Discovery Camp
Extreme Day Campers and overnight Discovery Campers will have 4 one-hour sessions at the barn. During these sessions, campers will participate in horse care activities and three one-hour sessions of recreational horseback riding.
Our overnight Wrangler Crew is a leadership camp where participants will spend 15 hours volunteering at the barn by helping with round-up, daily barn routines, and assist with riding lessons. Wrangler Crew campers will also have the opportunity to ride recreationally four times during the week.
LIT & 252 Crew
Campers in LIT & 252 Crew Camps will have the opportunity to ride recreationally at least once during their session. Riding may consist of either a lesson or a trail ride.
The overnight Equestrian camp program is an excellent choice for those who love horses. With a small group of six campers that allows for more individualized instruction, this camp is designed to help campers progress in their riding skills. There is one hour of Western Instruction, one hour of English Instruction and one hour of recreational riding a day in addition to horse care activities.
Campers will be accepted into the level (foundation or intermediate) they request based on their current horsemanship skills. Please contact the office by phone to discuss which camp would be best for your child.
Foundation Riding Camps are suitable for riders who are developing their skills at a walk and jog. Campers will build confidence as they learn fundamental jumping skills, participate in games on horseback, and polish their equitation. If campers are ready, they will be given the opportunity to learn to canter. This camp is appropriate for riders who have had 0 to 50 hours of lessons.
Intermediate Riding Camps are suitable for riders with at least 50 hours of previous riding instruction. Riders should be confident with walking and jogging as we will work on polishing skills at a lope/canter, working on simple lead changes, leg yielding and more. Campers will work toward jumping a two-foot jump.
Horse Lovers Camps
Campers in both our overnight and day camp Horse Lovers Camp will spend two hours a day at the barn developing their Western Riding skills and taking part in horse care activities. Campers are placed in one of the riding levels below based on their current riding ability. Riders can progress through the levels and will receive a certificate at the end of the week.
Overnight Horse Lover Campers will spend 8 hours riding during the week, while Day Camp Horse Lover campers will spend 7 hours riding over the course of the week.
