2011 SUMMER CAMP PROGRAMS
We have made important changes to our camp
program for the 2011 summer. Please read
carefully to be sure you are fully informed and can
choose the program that is best suited for your child.
TRADITIONAL RIDING CAMP
Summer Camp will be offered for TWO weeks for children 5 years old
and up, beginners thru advanced and you may sign up for one or both of
the weeks. If there is enough interest we will add a week in August.
Camp will operate Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Before and after camp care will be available at additional charge from
7:30 am until 6 p.m. Traditional riding camp offers daily riding lessons,
stable management, general horse care including bathing, braiding,
trimming and veterinary care, demonstrations from the vet and
blacksmith where campers are encouraged to assist, games, arts and
crafts, sports, water games and more. Our camp day is loosely
structured in order to give the camper some freedom to choose activities
that he or she is interested in participating in.
$375.00 per week
Available for one final week of August 22 - 26
|*NOTE: We fully expect this camp to fill very quickly, don't delay in
registering if you want to be sure to get a space for your child or children..
|PONY JOCKEY CAMP
Whoa! Hold yur horses now!!
If you have a serious equestrian in your family, this is the camp you
Pony Jockey Camp is for the committed rider, serious about
expanding their knowledge and skills in an intense program of
equestrian activity. Campers will be fully immersed in the myriad of
daily training activities required to turn a back-yard grazer into a
lovely, educated pony ready to enter the show ring.
There will be no craft activities at this camp. Nor will there be talent
shows, scavenger hunts or pony-painting parties.
This camp is dedicated to the child that has a serious interest in
equine activities and wants to pursue it as a long-term sport activity
or even as a future career. Does this describe your child? If so,
then this is the camp for him or her this summer!!
Campers will be given the responsibility of the overall daily care and
the supervised training of their assigned mounts for the entire week
of camp. Daily care involves the camper being responsible for the
feeding/watering and stall maintenance of assigned animals and
thorough examination of the animals every morning to be sure that
they are sound and free of any injury that may have occurred over
night. Prior to the conclusion of the camp day your child will perform
the examination again.
Training involves your child educating ponies in proper ground
manners to include grooming, desensitization, tacking, untacking,
bathing, trailer loading, show preparation, and other proper barn
manners expected of a show pony. It also involves a daily ride on
each of the assigned mounts. All training is conducted under the
supervision of our professional instructors and trainers.
Riders will be required to ride each assigned pony through a series
of patterns and/or obstacles during the training period. Without a
doubt, it will take hard work and teamwork on the part of your child,
our trainers, and the ponies - but by the end of Camp Week the
riders, ponies, and trainers will be ready for the horse show! Yes,
every camper will compete in an off-farm horse show each week and
learn the thrill of competition.
Campers will gain an insight into all the behind the scenes parts of a
working horse farm. There will be LOTS of riding and training,
LOTS of stable management, hands on veterinary care and medical
maintenance and prepping show animals for buyers and shows.
Campers will be hands on involved with assisting with the training of
youngsters under saddle thru competing in a horse show each week
Pony Jockey Camp offers serious horse enthusiasts the opportunity
of a lifetime. We'll be buying a horse at auction, travelling to a
horse show each week, riding and training ponies and presenting
some of them to prospective new owners. Campers will 'run the farm'
during camp week. They should expect to work hard but will head
home happy and excited for the next day to come.
Campers must meet certain requirements to be accepted to this very
limited opportunity. Eligibility requirements are listed on the
$525.00 per week
$1500.00 for all three weeks
Includes horse show fees
Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 7:30 am until 4:00 pm.
Camp will be offered the weeks of:
July 18 - 22
July 25 - 29
August 1 - 5
Sign up for as many weeks as you like, however, this camp is
available to a very small number of children and preference will be
given to those who sign up for all three weeks.
