We had such great success with our horse camp for beginners last summer, we've been asked to have them again!  As our students progress in their horsemanship, they will step up to the next class.  Class size is SMALL for more instruction and time on the horse/pony.  Limited to 6 riders.

Each of our camps offer skills to offer your child personal growth and instill self-confidence while learning horsemanship.  We set up teams during camp, so all can make new friends and learn about team-building.  Camps are a terrific way to get your child into horseback riding at a savings over typical private lessons.  Weather pending, campers will ride at least once a day, sometimes twice daily.  Arts & Crafts and other activities fill the days around horses.  A yummy (peanut free) lunch and snack is included each day. 

 

Camp hours are 10:00am - 3:00pm each day, Monday through Thursday, with a Parent's Show on Thursday and awards ceremony.

Beginning Horsemanship I

In this four-day camp, campers will learn how to groom, tack-up, lead and ride. Other activities include horse crafts, parts of the horse, feeding, watering and other care related topics. Campers will build friendships with fellow horse lovers in a structured and positive environment. Pegasus Springs has beautiful trails on property that we will hike and an outdoor arena in which we will ride. Depending on the rider’s ability and confidence, an adult will lead the horse, unless the instructor deems the camper ready to ride by themselves.  Campers must wear shoes with a closed toe and a heel, long pants and dress for the weather. Caps are encouraged. A nut-free cowgirl lunch will be provided each day, including a snack and water.  Please bring bug spray and sunscreen. Parents are welcome to watch their child ride on the last day of camp after lunch.   A signed waiver is required the first day of camp.
