Mini Camp is designed for the younger child who loves horses. During the camp session your child will be introduced to these
wonderful animals in situations geared for their age level and attention span.
Daily riding lessons will teach your child the very basics of horsemanship in a smaller confined arena for beginners. 
Campers will also learn to groom their ponies and help saddle them. Safety on the ground and when mounted is strongly
emphasized. Our staff to student ratio during riding is 1 to 3 maximum.
Your camper will enjoy hand led trail rides, vaulting (gymnastics on horseback), arts & crafts and simple games on horseback.
These activites will increase your childs self confidence while they have an incredible amount of fun. During the camp week we  video your camper riding and vaulting etc.   We will email you a link for you to view the video on our YouTube Channel.
If the camp session you wish to enroll in is full, you can be put on a wait list by emailing the office with your contact information, your childs name, age and the week(s) you want to be wait listed for.
