FACT - Camps don't always focus on just plain
Our camp is week long FULL immersion for maximum horse time.
This camp is for girls who want to
expand their skills.
So what do they need for background experience?
Is this Camp only for hotshot riders with lots of EXPENSIVE lessons under their belt?
NO SIRREE!!. THIS CAMP IS FOR EVERYONE.
Children of all ages can learn to jump & show off a bit. It's not hard if you have a
a strong desire to learn & develop seat & riding skills - and our coach loves to teach!
We ALL started somewhere, and this is the perfect place to start the process!
We get a BROAD mix of experience levels at ALL our camps, even at this level.
Just to make sure nerves don't hamper enjoyment, there are lessons for all levels!
The whole point of the week is to ENJOY. Well, and keep campers safe and comfortable!
It's an intensive program with twice daily 'in depth' lessons, starting off at their current
level, and with daily progression, they will be advancing quickly through the week!
This camp has a good 'bang for the buck' and your rider will go home happy and confident.
Our goal is to have our campers leave with a feeling of accomplishment!
Pictured here are Sport & Grace - relaxed and confident after a week together!
OUR HORSES ARE AWESOME!

We have a nice selection of pretty
Quarter Horses & flashy Appaloosas,
handsome Crossbred Drafts, Sport Horses
& Warmbloods. They are all camper
friendly horses with a wide variety
of sizes, speeds and talents to keep your
young rider happy throughout the week.
We believe that the key to a good team
for the week is 'horse & rider combination!'
We do our best to make good matches
at the beginning of the week, to pave
the way to a week long harmonious bond.
We've worked hard to build a great herd,
and keep them year round for maximum benefit!
IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT DRILL DRILL DRILL....
Camp is supposed to be fun - and social - and enjoyable!
What matters most to us, as riding stable operators and
Ontario Children's Horse Camp Program providers,
is that YOUR CHILD has a good time, meets lots
of friends, learns as much as they can, and has a very
memorable experience. Camp is supposed to be FUN!!
(we enjoy our campers, because teaching is what we do!)
