* New this year..adult riding camp!

Beginner Riding Camp

Our beginner riding camp is for riders from the ages 7 years old and up.  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 of 6. There will be 3 instructors so there will be a lot of individual attention.

The rider will need to wear long pants and shoes with heels.
