About the event
Do you have a young’un who just can’t get enough time with horses?
Our Equestrian Day Camp program is the one for you! Campers in this program spend the majority of their day in the barn around horses and focus on grooming, horse care in general, and horse education. The riding time will be mainly lunge line lessons with the vaulting girth (vaulting is gymnastic on the horse and a lunge line is a long rope to control the horse) and if our campers are not on the lunge line, we will have ground buddies to lead.
On Friday we will have a fun game day on horse back :)! Before the game day, the horses will be cleaned up and painted :).
We guarantee that they will ride at least four times, but it is our intention for them to ride more often! That’s a lot of riding time!
In addition, this program teaches campers about the responsibilities of owning a horse such as feeding, horse care, grooming, mucking stalls, etc. The morning starts with three horse related activities, whether that be a riding lesson, an hour of horse care, or groundwork with the horse. Then comes lunch (campers bring their own), and an hour of swimming or sprinklers. After water time campers have a snack and we will play fun games, content is all the great things they learned earlier in the day :).
