One of the all-time great vacation experiences is horseback riding. It's one of the things kids dream about and adults look back on fondly

Imagine school vacation days spent not only riding horses, but learning about them too, while enjoying the sounds and smells of a working horse ranch in a small group setting.

We offer camps for beginner through advanced riders that teach not only riding but feeding, maintenance and grooming as well. These camps are designed to develop and enhance, good horsemanship, confidence in, and consideration for our equine friends. Our lesson horses are thoroughly experienced well mannered, and suitable for riders of all levels.

Camp Activities:

Students will find out what it really means to own a horse. Including feeding and stall cleaning, haltering, grooming, hoof care, saddling, bridling, bathing and braiding mane and tails. Riding lessons at least 2 times daily. Afternoon classroom includes training on key topics, which every rider should know, and introduction to various styles and disciplines of riding. The final day, students will participate in a mini horse show to showcase the skills they learned during the week.
