Off the horse activities will include activities that teach the riders how to care for a horse, games and arts and crafts.
Western Week (Ages 8-14):
For beginning and intermediate riders (can ride at the walk off the lead line) who want to try their hand at western riding! Riders will practice basic skills in the arena by doing activities such as barrel racing, pole bending and obstacle courses. Then, end the week with a trail ride. Off the horse activities will include western themed games and activities – possibilities include roping, hay bale rolling, panning for gold, and horseshoe tossing.
Games Week (Ages 8-14):
For beginning and intermediate riders (can ride at the walk off the lead line) who want to review and practice their skills by playing tons of games in the arena. Egg and spoon races, costume relays, and musical horses are just a few of the possibilities! Off the horse time will include other games and activities that teach the riders more about horses.
Horseshow Week (Ages 12 and up):
For more advanced riders (riding at the walk and trot off the lead line) who love horse shows. Riders will work on skills in the arena with their assigned horse. Off the horse time will be spent learning how to prepare their horse for a show – bathing, braiding, and cleaning tack are just a few of the options. At the end of the week riders will be able to show off the skills that they have learned in a mini horse show that friends and family are welcome to attend!
