SUMMER CAMP 2014
Weekly sessions are conducted in a safe and structured environment, and are geared towards children who want to ride and learn as much as they can about horses, the animals care, and the equestrian sports.
Owner Helena Samuel has created a fun and encouraging environment for children to enjoy horses, learn, and ride. Each group will have the opportunity to ride and take lessons on well-trained horses and ponies to advance their equestrian skills throughout the summer.
Camp runs from Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM, ages 5 and up. During each session, children will have a 90 minute riding lesson. Groups are formed according to experience, with advanced, intermediate, and beginner sessions available. We take pride in giving all of our rider’s individual attention in small groups, while riding high quality horses and ponies, so they have fun and see real progress in their time with us.
In addition, kids will learn about horse care, including grooming skills and tack care, through daily hands-on horsemanship instruction taught by seasoned professionals. There will also be daily arts and crafts, games, and/or videos. Each session concludes with an in-house horse show where competitors will receive one-on-one feedback and advice from a professional judge.

* Daily riding 90 minute lesson- English or Western
