Saddle Club Camp
Our signature horse camp includes five days of riding lessons and equestrian activities. This camp is open to all levels - from beginner to advanced riders - and activities are geared to the level of students enrolled each week so no two camps are exactly alike! In addition to daily horse care and riding lessons, camps will include topics/activties ranging from:
- Horse care, safety and handling, stable management, grooming and hoof care
- Feeding/nutrition, colors/markings, anatomy
- First aid, bandaging, lunging, tacking up, saddlery, trailering
- Horse behavior, equine-assisted learning
- Mounted games and more!
Horse Whisperer Camp

Every part of our day, from the care of the camp horses to daily mounted riding lessons and ground work games and exercises will be 'trainer' focused.
Participants will develop their leadership style and a better understanding of non-verbal communication and how horses learn.
