Summer Camp - 2021

Session 2 - 8/3 - 8/6 Own Your Own Horse Week

Each camp is Tuesday through Friday 9:30am-2:30pm - $300 per session

Great opportunity for kids to learn more about natural horsemanship, spend the day with horses, build a relationship with them and meet new friends.  Just being around horses does wonders to boost the natural health of the human body, mind and spirit. There will be mounted and unmounted activities.  Open to ages 5-12yo. All levels and disciplines are welcome.  If you are older than 12yo and want to participate, please contact us about counselor in training opportunities.  There will be a game day on Friday to show off all you have accomplished with your horse, parents and friends are encouraged to come.  Each week we will focus on something different.  So if you wanted to do multiple weeks, it will be a great experience. Please bring a lunch, water, sunscreen and/or anything else you may need.  Helmets, long pants and a boot with a small heel are required to ride.  We do have helmets available here if needed.
