 Camp Activities and Curriculum

Your child will be immersed in a child-based hands-on horsemanship program that teaches students age-appropriate aspects of horse-care and riding.  Our summer camp program is designed to foster a healthy respect for horses that in turn will create a better understanding of and safer relationship with our mounts.

Campers will learn how to correctly:

  • catch, lead and handle their ponies

  • groom and tack their ponies

  • ride their ponies - bareback too!

  • cool down and care for their ponies after hard work

  • clean and put away their tack

Campers will also learn about general horse knowledge and daily horse management chores such as:

  • feeding horses hay and grain

  • cleaning up after horses

  • first aid treatments for horses

  • bathing and clipping of horses

  • common behaviors of horses

  • coloring, markings and  breeds

Additional Activities Included:
