Beginner Riding Camp
Our riding camp is for riders from the ages 7 to 13. Riders will be matched up with a horse for the week and will learn all responsibilities of care for that horse. Lessons include learning to approach a horse, lead, halter and unhalter, how to properly groom a horse, parts of the horse, and learning different equipment needed to ride a horse. Riding lessons will teach the rider to mount/dismount, walk, halt, and some trotting. There will be a maximum of 12 campers per week and a minimum or 6. There will be 3 instructors so there will be a lot of individual attention.
The time is from 10:00am till 2:00pm.
The rider will need to wear long pants and shoes with heels. If your child has her/his own bike helmet you are welcome to use it since it is already fitted, otherwise we will provide a helmet. Drinks and snacks are provided. Please pack a lunch.
The camp is intended to teach each rider responsibility of having a horse. This will be our 17th year of camp and every year has been a great time, we even have riders return year after year. It will be very educational and a lot of fun!
