Legacy Stables Riding Programs
At Own-A-Horse-Camp you get to experience what it is like to own a pony or horse. You will learn all aspects of horse care including feeding, grooming and stable management. And yes, you will have an opportunity to ride a horse every day!
Throughout the week, campers will learn and develop the Five C’s of Camp:
Comfort: Trusting the horse, themselves, and the staff.
Confidence: Having strong body language and voice with the horse.
Connection: Building relationships with the horses, other campers, and the staff.
Capability: Creating a strong foundation of knowledge to use with any activity at camp.
Challenge: Facing any frustration or new activity with bravery and positivity.
Each day, camp staff teaches on a different theme and covers many topics around caring for, riding, and owning a horse!
We cover the following topics and more throughout the week:
- Safety on and around the horse
- Different breeds and colors
- Horse Psychology – what makes a horse tick?
- Horse Talk – how do horses communicate with each other and us?
- How much does a horse cost?
- Various riding disciplines (Western, English, Vaulting)
- Parts of the tack
- How to clean a stall and other stable chores
Other fun activities include barn games, horse crafts, giving a horse a bath, braiding your horse’s mane, equestrian vaulting, and more!
In addition to learning about horses, students will learn Responsibility, Team Work, Self-Confidence, and of course have a ton of FUN making new horse-crazy friends!
The camp takes place at our beautiful horse farm with two indoor arenas and heated viewing area/classroom.
