Beginner Horse Day Camp
A horse intense beginner day camp for youth ages 8-14. This camp is for beginner and novice riders. The program runs from 8:00 a.m. til 4:00 p.m. which includes lunch and a snack. 

Campers will not only learn about horses, but will also learn how horses think and how horses can teach the camper. Having fun and being safe while leading, saddling and riding a horse are a top priority. 
The day will include devotions around the campfire, along with other fun activities outside the barn like a chuckwagon lunch, zip line, swimming and bonding with fellow campers on the challenge course. Riders must weigh 225# or less.
