The focus of this camp ~ A Polished Performance!

FACT - Kids LOVE to jump.
They'll do lots of that during Hunter Jumper Week.

FACT - Kids LOVE to meet new 'HORSEY' friends.
Camp is small and private, and campers always blend well here!

FACT - Kids need a gentle learning environment.
Our camp coach, Penny Nicol, is a positive yet very energetic force.

FACT - Kids love to spend time with horses.
They'll have their own horse for the whole darn week!

FACT - Camps don't always focus on just plain riding.
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?

Our campers need to be safe and COMFORTABLE at walk trot & canter
and be 'getting comfortable' over jumps up to 2'6". They need to be happy and
ready to ride! A willing attitude and desire to learn how to jump well.
A desire to open their mind and advance to a whole new level with drills
and very engaging training throughout the week. Our camp is a ton of fun too!
It is very thrilling to jump higher, and we will focus on improving safety and
security so that the girls can push on to feel more comfortable at heights up to 3'.


Does your young rider want some IN DEPTH JUMP training?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 







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 confide
nt.

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!

Click here to MEET our
CAMP HORSES


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!)

 

 

 

 

Ontario Hunter Jumper Camp Competition.jpg (42285 bytes)SO HERE'S WHAT THEY'RE GONNA DO.
KIDS ARRIVE.  HORSES ARE ASSIGNED.  FUN BEGINS!

 

 

 


 

 

 

After a day filled with horseback
riding, lessons and other outdoor
horsey activity, we'll enjoy a
fresh home-cooked dinner at the
farmhouse, and later, spend
the evening enjoying a cheery
outdoor fire.  Our horse campers
will enjoy a HUGE cabin with
lounge & TV & DVD player.

Neat, clean, and fresh - a week of home to all.

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

OF COURSE WE HAVE TO SWIM!

 

There are a variety of lakes close to the farm,
and we have an 18' pool for convenience.
After getting warmed up in the ring or on the
trails, our campers cancool off and
enjoy some downtime from riding.
