Some things that set us apart from other local camps:


* Daily PRIVATE riding lessons on one of our seasoned, horse-show quality lesson horses with a knowledgeable instructor


* Horse-keeping lessons taught through fun, hands-on activities including "Put the Part on the Pony", Colors and Markings Scavenger Hunt, "Paint A Pony", Tack Race and much more! 


* The opportunity to learn many aspects of horse care, from grooming to first aid, to stable management, tack and equipment, anatomy, etc.


*Horse-themed arts and crafts


*Mounted Games


* Our facility includes a COVERED RIDING ARENA to beat the summer heat!  We also have an air-conditioned clubroom for campers to take a break in.


* We utilize a group "stations" format for activities.  For example:  If a group of 3 campers are participating in their riding lessons (taught by 3 different instructors), then the other campers in groups of 3-4 are rotating through the other activities such as horsemanship lessons, crafts or games until it is their turn to ride.  We don't expect the campers to wait and watch the others until it is their turn to ride; we keep them busy!


* WE STRIVE NOT TO FOCUS ON COMPETITION BUT ON EACH INDIVIDUALS' EDUCATION AND ABILITY.

* WE CONSIDER EACH OF OUR HORSES TO BE FAMILY AS WELL AS BUSINESS PARTNERS!  OUR HORSES ARE TREATED WITH KINDNESS AND RESPECT AND IN RETURN, THEY PROVIDE EACH STUDENT WITH SAFE, CONFIDENCE BUILDING EXPERIENCES!
