Summer is almost here and so are our Girls Riding Camp Dates! Creating Memories that will last a lifetime at Horsin Around Riding Ranch.
2019 Kids Camp Dates
More dates to be announced.
Our 3 day camps include more riding/horse time than any other 5 day camp we have found that usually only offer 1 hour of lessons in the morning and a trail ride in the afternoon.
Girls 9 to 13 will spend their time learning how to groom, lead, ride bareback, tack and ride in a saddle comfortably during their stay with us. Some may even be able to learn to jump small cross rails depending on their comfort level on the horse. This will be our 27th year in business sharing our love and passion for our horses who have been with us for 8-27 years. Our camp is a HORSE CAMP! We do not spend time playing games or doing crafts, so campers must have a love for horses and want to spend all their time with them! We teach in an enclosed area and take the girls out on trail rides through our fields, hardwood bush, along the Trans Canada Trail and through some Conservation trails as well as a back road to our farm. We always look forward to these 2 weeks and they are coming up again fast!
Campers do not require previous experience or expensive clothing! Riding pants just need to be comfortable such as the stretch pants found at Wallmart and we provide helmets if you don't have one. We provide a full list of "things to bring" which includes a single mattress of some kind (inflatable, cushions from a trailer, etc.) as our bunks do not have one (hard to keep mice out of them in the winter). We will take 8 girls for each camp.
Girls can also choose to help us with our daily chores around the farm. Feeding chickens and collecting eggs, feeding our Red Wattle hogs, checking hay and possibly bringing in some square bales if they are ready.
The cost is $290 and includes homemade meals, (no hamburgers or hotdogs at our camp! We have fresh fruit at every meal, salads for lunch and dinner, ribs, lasagna, chicken, homemade waffles, yoghurt, etc.). We spend our lunch at the Crowe River where the girls can cool off and we go back again after dinner for a bit. $100 deposit is required to reserve your space and the remainder is due by June 30.
