Mark West Stables Summer Camp

In each week-long day camp riders have the opportunity to improve their riding and horsemanship skills through formal and fun activities.

Both horses and ponies are available to suit individual riding needs. Our camps are very popular and fill up fast, so please sign up early to reserve a space for your child. Signing up early also allows us to group campers by age and level which helps to make the camps more fun for everyone!

Our camps are for kids ages 7-12 and no previous riding experience is necessary!


Summer Camp Details

MORNING: Though the schedule for each day varies, campers generally spend the morning riding and doing activities around the barn to learn about horses and horse care. Campers are split into smaller groups to maximize attention and coaching from instructors.

LUNCH: We break for lunch around 12:00- 1:00. Campers have time for eating and some free play activities. We have a variety of fun locations to have lunch including our courtyard lawns and creek.

AFTERNOON: Afternoon actives vary each day. Activities include horsemanship and horse care instruction and introduction to horse-shoer and veterinary care. We also do structured arts and crafts activities and free play time. Other highlights include spending time playing at the creek or decorating the horses with paint!

Our facility is spacious with adequate room for social distancing and the vast majority of camp time will be spent outdoors or in barns with open air flow. Stay tuned for a detailed COVID safety protocol that will be available shortly.
