Come to Camp Horse Country this year for a "ridin' good time!" 

We're waiting to meet you.  Got carrots?



       "A ridin’ good time since 1977!”


Daily horseback riding – from 2 to 5 hours a day in the saddle. We ride in the arenas, in the corrals and on the trails.  Length of riding time depends on the camp program you choose.


Ground School – Learn to groom and saddle and how to handle a horse on the ground, including cleaning the hooves.


Horse Care – Learn to feed, how to clean tack, clean stalls, and take horses to their paddocks or pastures.


Games and Horsy Activities – on the ground and in the saddle.


Safe and positive environment.


Friendship circles, team-building activities and barn buddies.


Friday Horse Show with ribbons and trophies.
