Academy Stables Horse Camp (Ages 9-12)
This is a beginner camp focused on learning the mechanics of riding. The objective is to learn and practice the “four aids,” good leg, hand and seat position as they learn and practice walk, trot, reverse, etc. We are excited about adding of the concept of horsemanship and groundwork to our camps this year. Our goal is to begin building a solid foundation for kids in these skills. Horse camp runs Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

They will also learn the basics of basic horsemanship to begin the process of building a horse/human partnership for the mutual respect and enjoyment of the rider and the horse. Pony camp runs Wednesday-Friday from 9 a.m.-noon.
