Our summer and holiday horse camps aim to teach children (ages 7-15) about the wonderful world of horses. Through horse-related games and activities, campers learn about the care of horses, their characteristics, breeds, colors, and safe handling–both on the ground and while mounted–in a fun-filled environment.

Children are supervised by trained staff and counselors and learn horsemanship skills from horses suitable for the young rider. Kids Horse Camp is designed for all levels of riders

Camp hours are Monday thru Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Kids Horse Camp meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (except for Holiday camp). Extended care is available at an additional cost. Tuition is $325.00 per week (Active Duty Military Discount is Available). Due to limited number of students per session, full payment is due at time of registration. There is no deadline for enrollment, however sessions will close once it is filled and it fills up quickly so be sure to sign up early. Camp will be held regardless of weather conditions. If weather does not allow for riding, other activities will be scheduled.

What to bring to camp: All our campers and students are required to have their own riding boots. Campers should wear long pants (preferably fitted jeans) and boots No other types of shoes are allowed. No exceptions!

Please do not bring your child any earlier than 8:30 a.m. or pick them up later than 5:30 p.m. unless you have made prior arrangements. If you child will be arriving later than 9:00 a.m., please call our office, so they can inform the Camp Director.

When bringing or picking up your child, please sign him or her in and out on our Daily Attendance Record in the office. If you need to pick your child up early, or if someone other than yourself is picking up your child, please notify the Camp Director.

We provide a nutritious snack and beverages both at mid-morning and mid-afternoon or if preferred your child may bring a snack from home. Please do not allow your child to bring gum or candies. Ice water is available throughout the day.
If your child is required to take any type of medication or has any medical problem we should be aware of, please inform the Camp Director.

If we experience a heat wave, we ask you to please impress on your child the importance of drinking lots of water. If at any time while at camp your child begins to feel faint, dizzy, or have the beginnings of a headache, please have them inform the Camp Director immediately as heat stroke is always a possibility.

If we experience any rain during you child’s camp session, activities will go on as scheduled, with the exception that riding may be cancelled if the footing in the arena is not safe for riding. Another fun activity will be substituted. If you choose to keep your child home due to either heat or rain, no refunds or make-ups will be issued.
