Calling all cowboys and cowgirls! Join us on the farm for some horse time. Our Summer Horsemanship Camp includes learning natural horsemanship techniques based on trust, respect, and understanding. Activities are on the ground and in the saddle, and involve learning about horse care, riding, and bonding with horses. This is NOT a therapy group - the focus is purely on horses and becoming an all around great horseman/woman - but we believe fresh air, a little dirt, and horses provide the perfect natural setting for learning and growth!
If you are not sure if your child is the best fit for a group, we offer individual horsemanship lessons for those who may not require therapeutic services, but who may benefit from time with a horse or just want to learn to ride in a relaxing, non-show barn environment. This is also a great opportunity for your child to play with horses, but receive valuable 1-on-1 care and mentorship from their instructor! See our horsemanship page for more details.
Participants must come prepared for group by wearing long pants (no shorts for riding) and sturdy boots with a heel. Clothes and shoes that can get muddy are best. They should bring a water bottle and lunch; they may also bring a snack. Please alert staff of any allergies. Sunscreen, bug spray, hats, sunglasses, chapstick – whatever your child needs to be comfortable, please bring along. Parents are invited to wait in cars or our outdoor waiting area, or to drop off their child as long as they are prompt to pick up at the end of group.
