We had such great success with our horse camps in 2018 & 2019, and missed seeing everyone in 2020. 

We are excited to offer them again!  NEW THIS YEAR!!  WILD & UNPLUGGED DAY CAMPS!

PICK YOUR FAVORITE CAMP or PICK MORE THAN ONE!  

Each of our camps offer skills to offer your child personal growth and instill self-confidence while learning horsemanship or about nature.  We set up teams during camp, so all can make new friends and learn about team-building.  Our Horse 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.   Our Wild & Unplugged Day Camp does not involve horses.

 

Camp hours are 10:00am - 4:00pm each day, Monday through Wednesday. (A camp is a 3-day camp, not a one day only)

Beginning Horsemanship I

In this 3-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 lunch will be provided each day, including chips, a snack and water & lemonade.  Please bring bug spray and sunscreen.
