CAMP DATES

2019 Summer Horse Camp Dates:
Please note that previous experience is not required for participation in our camps. Riders will be grouped by experience and comfort level, and lessons will be tailored to each group's specific needs. Camps fill up quickly so please reserve your spot! For safety and effectiveness we limit the number of participants to ensure a safe instructor to rider ratio and allow for maximum learning opportunities. Financial assistance may be available; please inquire at info@imatthebarn.com if you are interested in sponsoring a rider or applying for financial assistance.

WHAT WE DO AT CAMP

Our camps are designed to be both stand alone and progressive so no matter what your child's experience, she/he will learn new skills and have fun. Instructor to rider ratio is usually 4 to 1. Your child rider will have the opportunity to learn basic horsemanship and safety, english or western riding skills, equine care, and stable management in a fun and safe environment. We believe in an encouraging and holistic approach to riding so we offer a number of creative and project based learning activities as well.

WHAT YOUR CHILD WILL NEED

Please send your child prepared for the day; we recommend putting your child's name on all personal items.
~ Close-toed shoes preferably with a smooth sole and small heel. (No flip flops, minimal tread if using hiking boots, sneakers are ok)
~ Pants or leggings for riding. Your child is welcome to change into shorts during camp but we require long pants or leggings while on horseback to protect legs and promote comfort.
~ Water in a refillable bottle. It is very important for young riders to stay hydrated.
~ Lunch and snacks. Please do not send your child with peanuts or food containing nuts in consideration of others who may have severe allergies. We do have refrigeration in the barn to keep food cool.
~ Sun screen to protect skin.
~ Personal items your child may need during the day.
~ Cell phones for family contact are ok but we discourage all other electronics; we'll be busy having fun with horses!
