Our summer camps are centered around horses -- all day, every day!
No prior experience necessary. This is a very “hands on” experience
with lots of ride time, both under formal instruction and just for fun.
Five day sessions concludes with a riding exhibition/photo opportunity

performs in an equine centered movie or play.
