Pony Camps

2019 Pony Camp Dates

Dates coming soon!

Weekly Pony Camp are offered to new and beginner riders from the ages 5  to 12.  Our Pony Camps focus on teaching riders the love for horses from the 'ground to mount'.  This means our camps are structured to teach the riders how to work with their horses and ponies on the ground and well as on their back. We believe in giving our students all the same amount of focus and attention from our instructors. Campers are split into two group and take turns learning to ride on horse back and learning to care for their animals in the barn (stable management skills). 

 

Campers will ride the same pony every day of the camp to build the relationship and responsibility needed between rider and pony in the sport. Campers learn the very basics from learning how to walk on a lead line while learning to steer on their own, to eventually effortlessly guiding their own pony around the ring. Lessons encompasses all of the fundamentals in order to create strong, effective and beautiful riders. We believe that horseback riding is a life long journey. We believe in starting all students in a safe and skilled method of training to bring along all levels of riders and make sure every child is happy and comfortable while progressing to the next level.
