All of our camps are fun and educational and unlike any other horse camp around! Every camper will spend the week getting to know their own miniature equine and will be in charge of all aspects of its care. We will spend the day doing horse activities and learning everything from grooming, to wound care, to training techniques. Although this is Not a riding camp, the campers will learn skills that are essential to riding and control of the horses. We will go for hikes, wagon rides, and play lots and lots of games with them. We will even have guest professionals come and teach the children about different aspects and skills within the horse world.
Returning this Year! Writer's Camp! (Week 4)
This is a super fun week working with the minis and being creative, both individually and as a group. We will work together to come up with fun and crazy stories about the minis and the adventures that they go on. Each camper will make their own storybook along with being part of a bigger one for the entire group. At the end of the week, they will present their stories to the group along with the characters in it! We help everyone with the writing process and getting ideas down on paper. It is so much fun to see the creativity of the books!
NEW THIS YEAR!!
Advanced Camp this year is specifically designed to work with the minis to teach them new skills and teach them to go off property to do community service. It is open to campers, preferably 8yrs and older, who already have horse experience either through extensive riding lessons, or through several weeks of our camp. Each camper must be approved for this camp.
The first week will focus on more difficult training methods, advanced handling, loading and unloading from trailers, and taking the minis on training field trips.
The second week will focus on taking some minis out for daily service events within the community. Campers will learn how to keep their tiny equines safe while at the same time helping others learn about them.
Campers would ideally sign up for both weeks to get the full learning knowledge and see the progress in their horses. However, Advance 1 can be signed up for without Advanced 2. But, Advanced 2 MUST be preceded by Advanced 1 in order to take the minis out for community service.
LIMIT of 8 Participants
NEW THIS YEAR!!
Future Blacksmiths Specialty Camp is a new and super special camp this year! It will focus on one of the most fun and popular activities we've done in our camps, blacksmithing! It is similar to the other weeks, but is specifically focused on creating and working with our amazing farrier to create things out of steel. Each camper will make a daily project with the farrier that will build on developing new skills and abilities each day, to create more skilled pieces of art. Don't worry, they will also get plenty of daily time with their mini friends as well, and do all the fun things we normally do in camp!
**Must be at least 7yrs old unless preapproved by instructor**
***All REGULAR Camps are open to ages 6-14 years with possibilities for 5 year olds if we've met and worked with prior to camp to evaluate readiness (contact us for details). There are age restrictions for our Specialty and Advanced Camps. Older campers are welcome for the Advanced Camps.
