A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful -
and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.  ~ Pam Brown ~

Youths & Adults always have a busy 'learn something special' agenda, so we dish out a week of fun in the wilderness!

they kick back with their new friends, enjoy a home cooked meal,
play games, watch movies, go for a swim, and have a campfire,

INVITATIONAL CAMP
Aug 27th - September 2, 2017
(INTERMEDIATE TO CIT)

We always thought each camp has 'special' kids who
were fun, good riders, great in the barn, amicable,
mature and self sufficient. We also always wondered
what would happen if one day, they met each other! So this
low key, awesome, end of season camp is like no other! By
Invitation Only, we gather a group of 8 riders from previous
camps, and spend a week of advanced, in depth lessons, focusing
on riding, very solid riding instruction, and enjoying the horses.
The kids even get a say in which lessons they will have each day!
Best of all, each camper gets a team jacket - always a huge HIT!

A GREAT FINALE to a fantastic summer of children's horse camps!
