SUMMER CAMPS

 

Our staff of instructors stress safety, horsemanship and fun in English and Western disciplines.  In addition to horseback riding, each camper will learn how to groom, saddle, bathe, and care for a horse.  Campers will participate in many hands-on activities with the horses when they are not riding.  The skill level of the rider will determine the activities that surround that particular camp.  Camps are available for various ages, skill levels, and disciplines.  There are even Mini Buckaroo Camps for ages 5-6!
