Day Camps at Happy Horse are a dream come to true for horse lovers. Our goal is to make camp as much like having your own horse as possible. Campers will be assigned a horse to take care of for the week. If you already have your own horse we encourage you to bring him to camp with you. There is no extra charge for bringing your horse, just let us know so arrangements can be made. You will be responsible for feeding the horses lunch, cleaning the stalls and taking care of any special needs they may have.
Each day every camper will have:
Vaulting Lesson (gymnastics on horseback)
Unmounted Lesson - Learn all about owning and caring for horses.
We use English saddles and you will be learning a basic balanced seat which will apply to any style of riding. Depending on skill level we will be doing jumping, games and riding up and down hills.
Vaulting is gymnastics on horseback. This is the MOST fun way to learn to ride!!! You don’t have to be good at gymnastics; everyone is good at gymnastics on horseback!
Each day campers will have a vaulting lesson, riding lesson & stable management class.
What to bring daily: boots, tennis shoes, helmet, lunch, sunscreen
Once during the week: healthy snack to share (sign up for one day), and 1 lb of carrots
On the last day of camp, during the last hour; we will put on a demonstration for parents & friends.
Summer day camps run from 7am to noon. Cost: $345
