Ranch Riders Camp
Ranch riders is a wonderful camp option for kids ages 7-12 years old.
On Monday, each camper is assigned a horse or pony to work with for the week. Camper's riding abilities are assessed by our trained staff and divided into skill groups based on their previous riding experience. Ranch Riders Camp is structured for Beginner and Intermediate level riders. Ranch riders camp is conducted in Western saddles.
Campers will work to help catch, groom, and saddle up the horses. They will also enjoy riding lessons, trail rides, and playing games on horseback. Your camper will be taught about horse care, the cost of ownership, and stable management practices such as cleaning their horses' pen and feeding. Other planned activities include bareback riding, meeting and riding the draft horses, learning about different styles of riding, and some arts and crafts including finger paining aa live pony.
Ranch Riders will begin to experience what it is like to own a horse and the hard work that comes with it. Ranch Riders will get approximately 2+ hours daily of riding time.
Each camper will have a lunch break and snack time. Campers must bring a lunch, snack, and drinks. Remember to pack lunches in sturdy bags or containers so our friendly squirrel population doesn’t get to share your lunch.
Jeans or riding Breeches.
Cowboy boots, English riding boots, or approved boots with a drop-down heel. Absolutely no tennis shoes, or lug soled shoes/boots.
