Other Things to Know:

  • If the weather is bad we move inside to my great room where we will screen educational equine documentaries or pony movies. Inside barn horse lessons
  • We have before and after care its $10 per hour it is supervision, however, not an additional activity.
  • This is an outdoor camp at an actual horse training facility! It is not a daycare style camp that features pony rides.
  • Please make sure your child has the ability to be outside for the duration of our camp day 9 AM to 4 PM.
  • This camp is geared towards children developing a sense responsibility, independence, positive socialization with other children/adults and most importantly respect for nature and animals. We aim to achieve this by providing an understanding of equine psychology & freedom to problem solve.

You Should Bring:

  • Sunscreen
  • Swimsuits
  • Lunch
  • Appropriate outdoor/riding clothes (Long pants, boots with a heel or sneakers are acceptable, we can provide helmets)
  • Comfortable weather appropriate clothing after riding
  • Towels

Just a Reminder:

This facility is also my home. Everyone will have access to restrooms, shower, kitchen, and air conditioning if need be. Please treat the property with care. Drive carefully as there are cats, dogs, and other children crossing the driveway.

Always remember you’re on a farm there will be dirt. I don’t recommend sending your children in their finest whites!

Please be cognizant that there are other animals on my property besides horses (dogs, cats, etc.) they are my personal pets and are not used to strangers chasing and grabbing them. Please do not touch or chase them.
