  • July 9 - 13, 2018 || All Around the Barn (10y/o+)

All camps will include multiple riding lessons, both inside and outdoors. Campers can expect to learn about basic horse care and how to groom, tack and lead their horses. Campers will also have the opportunity to learn how to drive a team of draft horses!

All camps are beginner friendly, but also great for returning campers. At the end of the camp, on Friday, we invite family and friends to came meet the camper's favorite horse/pony and see what the kids have been learning!

Have a little one between the ages of 5-7 years old who wants to come to horse camp?
