HORSE CAMPS

Ontario Overnight March Break & Summer Horseback Riding CampS

Shaping their future

Our Children’s Camp is not just about riding horses or driving a dogteam, it’s about defining your future spirit.  Learning to be a team player, and working together with a large and powerful animal, means independence and social skills.  Learning to care for dogs and horses, while enjoying Nature, means camp isn’t just about horseback riding or dog sledding – it’s about living!
