“There is something good about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of man.”
Our weekly summer camp program creates an atmosphere where a special relationship forms between the child and the horse, where they learn to respect and admire these beautiful creatures. Participants learn the basics of horse care, washing, grooming and feeding. Focus is on equitation as the most effective way to ride and stresses proper use of hands, legs, and body position. We have wonderful horses and ponies that know their job and love it.

Your child will experience responsibility working as a team member. They will also learn how to set their own personal goals and create a plan for accomplishing their goals. Positive attitude and self-confidence are created through accomplishments which will enable them to try new things and succeed in any endeavor.
Whether your child is a beginner or advanced rider our program will make your child smile as they experience the combination of making new friends and finding that special favorite horse. Fun is a priority and having good times and laughter will make memories that last far into your child's future.
Our equestrian staff is qualified to teach a wide range of riders. Young beginners play mounted games and get to learn all about their favorite horses, while others may learn to post to the trot, canter, or jump. More advanced riders get to jump through gymnastics or over natural obstacles.
