Horseback Riding Camp Program
All Heart Horse Farmís camp program is in its thirteenth year! In addition to our popular summer weekly camps, we are very pleased to offer school break camps, winter holiday camps, Overnight camps, and educational 1-day Saturday camps.
Everyone is welcome to attend our horse camps, including children with no previous riding experience.
We strive for a six-to-one ratio of campers to counselors, which allows us to personalize the camp adventure to individual skill levels.
Our five-day summer camps are designed for all ages and we focus more on beginning-level horsemanship.
We're very excited about our Overnight Camp program! Overnight camp includes riding each day, late-night barn checks by flashlight, and toasting smores over campfire! Our next Overnight Camp will be December 20th and 21st! -- sign up today!
We're working on our 2015 Holiday schedule now -- Please check back soon! Click Here for Calendar and Registration
Some of Our Camp Activities Include:
Introduction to Horses|
Learn about living in a herd of horses! Campers find out about responsibilities of horse ownership, careers associated with horses, All Heart Horse Farm internships and interest project opportunities.
Daily Horse Care|
Campers gain hands-on experience with horses by participating in the day-to-day activities of a working horse farm. Campers assist with grooming, bathing, feeding, and cleaning horses.
Horses in History and Culture|
Campers learn true examples of famous horses in history, as well as hearing some of the rich tradition of tall tales and legends. Camps also include many different equine arts, crafts, songs, or games.
Equine Tack and Equipment|
Each part of the saddle and bridle plays a key role in the comfort and safety of horse and rider. Campers help with saddling and bridling a horse, and learn about proper preparations for horseback riding.
Campers ride on horseback every day. New riders develop their skills with mounting, dismounting, starting, walking, turning, and stopping. Advanced riders are challenged with new riding activities and skill tests.
Demonstration of Knowledge|
On Friday afternoon from 2:30 to 3pm, the five-day camp concludes with a Demonstration of Knowledge,
where campers get to show off their accomplishments.
Parents are encouraged to attend -- and bring your cameras!
Camp activities are held in our barns, Covered Arena, and Equine Education Center!
