Summer Horsemanship Camps

To ensure everyone has a great time and is safe several levels of camp are offered.

Beginner, Beginner/Intermediate and Intermediate - Advanced Show Boot Camp.


Who is a Beginner? Ages 7 -16: Little to no riding or hands-on experience.


Who is Beginner/Intermediate?

Ages 7 - 18: One to two years of camp experience and/or has been riding in a regular riding lesson program for under a year.


Who is an Intermediate - Advanced Boot Camper? Ages 7 -18: Lots of riding experience. Has been involved in a lesson program for 2 or more years and has a strong interest in showing horses.

Welcome to our 2017 Camp Season. Our horsemanship camps teach campers about the horse from the ground up and safety is our first priority. Our camps are instructed in an entirely hands-on format allowing our campers to learn to appreciate all different aspects of the horse.  Our instructors are experienced horsemen with years of horse experience and knowledge. We also have a ratio of 5 campers per instructor/counselor. In addition we require all campers to wear a certified safety helmet while riding and driving. These helmets are provided. Along with qualified instructors, the equine staff is composed of seasoned veterans that were selected because of their pleasant and willing attitudes. These kind animals exhibit endless patience as many campers take their first riding lessons.
