Our school horses are carefully chosen and matched with students to ensure the learning and enjoyment of these beautiful creatures. In addition to our morning and afternoon riding sessions, we spend time learning all about horses and their care. We learn to bathe horses, groom them and tack them up. Other activities are around property trail riding (depending on level of campers), mounted and unmounted games, water activities and a competition at the end of the week to show-off what the campers learned.
