Each summer, Five Oak Farms offers several sessions of horsemanship day camp for children ages 6 to 13. In addition to daily riding instruction, campers receive a comprehensive education on grooming, basic horse health care, barn management, horse conformation and anatomy, tack cleaning, equine nutrition, and the farrier trade.
Camp runs for five, fun-filled days and activities also include horse-related art projects, preparing for a horse show and trail riding. On the final day, campers participate in horseback games and enjoy a pizza party before graduating. By the week's end, each camper acquires a full understanding of the joys and work that go into being a responsible horse owner.
Because we put a premium on camper safety, our groups are small, allowing for maximum individual attention. The camp program is run by one of our trainers with assistance from other counselors. We divide our camps into beginner and intermediate sessions. Contact us beginning in early spring to sign up, because spaces go fast! References available upon request.
