  • Homeschool Horsemanship Camp

    May 10-16, 2020

    If you love horses and are homeschooled, this is the camp for you! Specifically designed for homeschoolers age 10 and older, this week includes teachings, chapel content, and a schedule all prepared with your needs in mind. The mid-May timing of this camp and its smaller size (twenty campers) offers a great chance to get to know others with similar backgrounds very well. 

    This camp concludes with a Friday evening program (4:30pm) where campers will demonstrate what they have learned in a horse show at the arena. Parents, family, and friends are invited to attend with a cookout meal following (donations are accepted to help cover the meal costs- but don’t let cost keep you away).


  • Level 1 Horsemanship Camps

    May 31-June 6; July 5-11; August 16-22, 2020

    Campers will learn the basics of horse care and riding, working toward being able to safely and confidently control their horse. Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) based curriculum, games on horseback, trail rides, and  preparing an introductory drill routine offer campers fun experiences to  develop their skills. CHA Level 1 certification may be earned. 


  • Level 2 Horsemanship Camps

    June 7-13, July 26-August 1, August 9-15, 2020

    Campers build upon their Level 1 experiences as they become confident controlling their horse at a trot and learn the basics of the canter. Intermediate-level games, trail rides, arena instruction, and preparing a group drill routine help students work toward CHA Level 2 certification in a fun and caring environment.

  • Level 3 Horsemanship Camp - TWO WEEK Sessions

Level 3 games, activities, and trail rides will test and expand campers’ riding ability and love of horses. The second week will include practicing the advanced Level 3 CHA materials, additional activities, extended trail rides  off camp property, and preparing an  advanced drill routine. Certification for CHA Level 3 may be earned.
