Summer Horse Camp is almost HERE!

High Country Stables is so excited for another busy season of horse camp!  Sign up for just one week, or ride for the whole summer!  For a printable version of camp information, please download our CAMP FLYER and ENROLLMENT FORM.

Beginner Horse Camp

Our beginner horse camp is designed for kids coming through their first ride all the way through learning to trot, canter, and jump their first jumps.  In beginner camp, kids learn all the basics for horse care and riding.  This fun-oriented camp is perfect for kids who love horses!  Open to kids age 7 and up, current students and new riders of all levels in English and Western are welcome!  In a typical camp day, students prepare their horse for the ride by leading them from their stall/paddock to the grooming area, grooming them thoroughly from head to hoof, and saddling and bridling.  Campers then take a group riding lesson with one of our excellent trainers for 60-90 minutes, working on perfecting the basics, learning new skills, and playing group games.  After the ride, students take care of the horses again, untacking, grooming, and sometimes even bathing.  

Beginner Camp is offered Tuesday through Friday from 8AM-Noon

Cost:  $250/week session or $65/single day of horse camp

Advanced Horse Camp

Advanced camp is designed for kids that have mastered the basics and want to extend their knowledge, skills, and overall horsemanship in and out of the saddle.  In advanced camp, we emphasize skills needed for competitive riding and horse ownership, focusing on technical riding exercises and advanced horse care with the goal of turning out well-rounded, independent, and capable riders.  Advanced camp is for the more serious rider that already has experience cantering and jumping, but is interested in learning to ride more difficult horses and take their skills to the next level.  

Advanced Camp is offered Tuesday through Friday 8AM-Noon

June 24-27

July 29-August 1

August 12-15

Cost:  $250/week session or $65/single day of horse camp

What to bring for Horse Camp....

All riders must wear appropriate footwear - boots with a 1" heel are ideal, but close-toed well-fitted shoes are acceptable.  Kids will not be permitted to ride in sandals, clogs, slippers, etc.  Long pants should be worn, kids can bring shorts to change into for non-riding portions of camp.  Campers should bring a snack and a water bottle, and be prepared for warm weather!  Campers are welcome to bring their own helmets, but ASTM-certified helmets are provided on-site and are required for participation in camp.  Campers are welcome to bring treats (carrots, apples, peppermints) for their horses, and feeding is allowed only under supervision.  The stables provide all other tack and equipment needed for the horses.
