We will be offering five weeks of camp this summer. Three of those weeks will be our ever-popular "Pony Camp" style with ponies, pool time, arts and crafts! This camp will be Mon-Fri, 9am-3pm, for kindergarten-fifth graders.
This summer we will also be introducing two weeks of "Horsemanship Camp!" This is a week long experience for the real horse lover in your family. It features a smaller group of campers and a more focused equestrian experience. Each camper will be paired with a horse or pony for the week, and they will learn the ins and outs of caring for their new equine companion. No pool in this one, but we will have longer ride times and more hands on horse learning! This camp is for ages 9-14. It runs Mon-Fri (tentatively 8am to 1pm). Former "graduated" pony-campers are encouraged to come back to enjoy Summer camp again, all levels of rider welcome!
Our "Pony camps" are designed to provide a fun and safe introduction to horses, horse care, and riding. A typical day includes one riding lesson, lots of time with horses on the ground including tackup, grooming, and handling, and a number of group sessions where campers learn about other aspects of horse care and management. Camp also includes snack time, field games, swimming, arts and crafts, and a fun horse show and party at the end to show off what we've learned! We believe in teamwork, hands on learning, working hard, and playing hard!
Campers should come prepared with a hat, water bottle, sunscreen, packed lunch, long pants, boots with a small heel for riding, and a change of clothes and swimsuit for the afternoon. Helmets are provided by the farm. However if you have your own approved riding helmet you are more than welcome to wear that! No bike helmets unfortunately. Labeled items are always a good idea. If you are interested in picking up riding boots check out Gallops or Bit by Bit Consignment and Resale.
