No, not that boring summer camp stuff that kids dread, but the full-week-summer-camp kind that not only allows parents to not miss work, but the kind that allows the campers to ride horses, do horse arts and crafts and be around horses all day long!
Join us at the Blue Skies Stables Summer Horse Camp! Our newly completed state-of-the-art horse barn offers an air conditioned classroom and bathroom, as well as a fully covered riding arena for those days when the sun is just too hot to ride outside!
Never ridden a horse before? No worries – our Summer Horse Camps are for all skill levels of horse riders, and are supervised by our professional trainers and their assistants. There will be no more than 3 students per every 1 summer camp horse instructor – so these camps truly will be for all levels and more assistance will be provided if needed! The camps will be broken out as follows:
- June 11th to June 15th 2018 – Beginning Riders – ideal for ages 6-11, and whom have either no experience or some experience at the walk or trot. This camp will run from 9am to 3pm daily.
- July date TBD – Intermediate to Advanced Riders – ideal for ages 10+, and whom are able to walk/trot/canter and have at least started over cross rails, and have shown or plan to show. This will be a half-day camp, running from 9am to 1pm.
So what all is included you ask? Well, besides riding on one of the horses in the barn, the entire focus will be on having fun. We will learn the proper care of the horse, how to tack the horse, groom the horse and more. For students with a deep interest in the care of horses, we will teach the proper care of feeding and some basic medical care such as wrapping of the legs and more. We will also have horse arts and crafts, games and a whole lot of fun hanging out with new and old friends. On the final day of camp, the students will put on an exhibition of the skills they’ve learned for their parents and siblings in the morning. Afterwards, we will wrap up with a pizza party and more fun for the kids, as well as some parting gifts.
If ever there was a great way to see if your child truly loved horses and wanted to continue, this is the way to do it! Under watchful professional eyes, in a state-of-the-art facility with other kids with similar interests! We also offer discounts off of camp if you bring a friend, and our summer camp for children ages 13 and under is eligible for up to a 35% tax deduction!
