Fun at Pony Camp!
Summer Pony Camps
Welcome to our pony day camps! Here at Pony Party Place, we offer safe and comprehensive horse riding camps with lots of riding time, for ages 3 through 11. We make learning fun.
Your child will be immersed in their age-appropriate horse experience including demonstrations, discussions, and structured riding lessons. Everything is hands-on. Each rider will have their own horse for their camp experience. Campers will learn about horses and their care, feeding, grooming, and tacking up. They'll also learn riding skills at their own speed and on their own level horse so they can confidently and safely progress in their skills.
Each child will have an intern assigned throughout the camp session for a one-on-one experience. All of our interns are experienced staff, not just hired for the summer. They are knowledgeable, patient and work well with any age.
Our four-day pony/horse camp experience ends each Thursday with an exhibition of the skills we have learned in western equitation, gaming and halter showing. We will show you our handy work with our assigned stalls and what we have been up to during the week. All families should arrive Thursday at 11:15 . Show begins at 11:30am. Refreshments are served after.
Reserve your spot early, as camps fill quickly, and size is limited to 4 children per session to ensure individualized attention
