August 14-16, AM: 9:30-12:00; PM: 1:30-4:00 or Full Day: 9:30-4:00
Our Trailblazers camp is offered as a Morning and Afternoon camp, but kids can enroll for both and enjoy lunch, games and some downtime in between the camp sessions. Both the AM and PM camps have unique curriculum, but will each feature lessons and activities centered around trail riding and the great outdoors. Kids will make binoculars and bug houses for bug hunting activities, make fairy gardens and learn about the role of critters in a forest. As with all of the Age 4-8 camps, kids will take a 40 minute riding lesson with one-on-one instruction in both the AM and PM sessions.
Ranch Olympics -- Age 4-8, $115
August 28-30, 9:30-12:00
In our Ranch Olympics-themed camp, relay races, obstacle courses and ranch games take the stage. As with all age 4-8 camps, kids will take a 40 minute riding lesson with one-on-one instruction. During this week's ride, kids will participate in riding games and everyone will leave with a ribbon. Unmounted relay races include wheelbarrow races and a blindfolded team relay designed to simulate the trust necessary between horse and rider. Disco the mini horse will grace our camp for the week, leading kids in a lesson on leading horses through obstacle courses. The week will be all fun, but not just games. We'll save plenty of time for ranch-themed lessons, crafts and activities.
The essential joy of being with horses
is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fire.
