About the event
9:30 AM -12 PM
A very popular camp for riders who have just started riding or who have never ridden before. Campers will be introduced to all aspects of riding from stable management and caring for “their” horse to riding. Each camp will include riding, basic care of the horse, how to safely be around the horse on the ground and under saddle, crafts, horse related games and horse games while riding and stable and team building skills. This camp is recommended for riders ages 4-7 and aimed towards limited or beginner level. This camp is limited to 8 riders.
What the day might look like/things we will discuss:
HR 1: Introduction to instructors and camp helpers, introduction to the horse/pony. Go over general safety rules, and begin learning how to brush, tack up and lead horse/pony to arena.
HR 2.5: Learn the basics of riding, how to steer, stop, back up and go. Learn how to navigate through some simple obstacles, play a few games on horseback and team building exercises.
Lastly, campers will dismount and lead their horse/pony back to the barn to be unsaddled. Campers will then spend some time with their horse/pony by finger painting them in fun themes and learn about the different body parts of the horse. The end of the camp, campers will help clean up the horses/ponies before putting them out to pasture.
Ride time about 45 minutes if campers have the attention span for it.
A playable model horse painted to look like their camp horse can be purchased at an additonal $30.
A non refundable deposit of $50 is due at time of booking.
