Horse Around the Barn
July 11 - July 15
What does it really take to care for a horse of your own? In Horse Around the Barn, campers have the opportunity to experience horse ownership as they are matched with their very own horse for a week! They learn to care for and build a bond with their horse through daily care and exercise. Campers work through mock scenarios and will need to make decisions on issues that may arise when you own your own horse, such as veterinary care, emergencies, nutrition, exercise and training, hoof care, etc. What does being a responsible and humane horse owner mean? How much does it cost to own a horse? What issues are facing the equine industry? These are the types of questions campers thoughtfully explore with their peers and instructors while they build a meaningful connection with a horse through riding and care. Horse Around the Barn Camp is just right for Beginner Novice through Intermediate level riders (View Rider Ability Guide HERE>>).
