Children are invited to spend an hour with one of our staff members at the Equestrian Center. This camp is designed toward our new cowboys and cowgirls who may be new to horses and those that want to add to their equestrian experience. This opportunity will allow them to learn about petting, grooming, tacking, leading, and ground safety. Each participant will have the opportunity to throw a lariat, testing their inner cowboy or cowgirl skills. All participants will have the opportunity, if they choose, to mount up and be hand-led by our staff member for a short ride at the conclusion of the camp, creating the perfect opportunity for their parents to grab a picture.
