ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS

Each summer, we hold horse camps for both children with no previous horse experience, and for those that have horse experience.  This is a great opportunity to learn about horses, how to ride, meet new friends who also have a love for horses, create horsey crafts, and gain tons of hands on experience with these gorgeous animals.

HORSE CAMP

Learning to Communicate with Horses is a non-riding horse class for adults 50 and over who have always wanted to learn about these majestic creatures. This half-day class will teach you safe communication with horses. You’ll experience a silky muzzle, warmth of breath and the feeling of serenity as you connect with a horse. Learn how horses communicate with each other, and how to safely interact and engage in activities that encourage bonding between horse and human. Sometimes this bond can help the human heart to heal when there has been a loss or sad experience or traumatic incident in a person’s life.
