Camp Descriptions:

Traditional Camp

Learn the basics of riding a horse. We’ll focus on starting, stopping and steering.  Riders will practice these skills with activities and games in the arena. Depending on the weather, there’ll be a relaxing ride on the Little Bit Trail! Off-the-horse activities include learning how to care for a horse, games, and arts and crafts.

Skill level: Beginner–For riders who have never ridden through beginners who can walk off the lead line.

Western Camp

Try your hand at Western riding. Riders will practice basic skills in the arena by barrel racing, pole bending and doing obstacle courses. The week will end with a trail ride. Off-the-horse activities include western-themed games and activities like roping, hay bale rolling, panning for gold and tossing horseshoes.

Skill level: Beginner to intermediate– For riders who can ride at the walk off the lead line.

Games Camp

Are you ready for a ton of fun? Review and practice your horse skills by playing games in the arena.  Egg and spoon races, costume relays and musical horses are just a few of the possibilities. Off-the-horse activities include more games and learning more about handling horses from the ground.

Skill level: Beginner to intermediate– For riders who can ride at the walk off the lead line.

Horseshow Camp

It’s time to show off! Experience the fun and excitement of riding in a show.  Riders will work on skills in the arena with their assigned horse. Off-the-horse activities include learning how to prepare their horse for a show: bathing, braiding and cleaning tack are just a few of the options. Show your stuff at the end of the week in a mini horse show that friends and family are welcome to attend! 

Skill level: Intermediate– For riders comfortable at the walk and trot off the lead line.
