Summer Camps, Back to School Camp, Fall Camp, Christmas Camp & Spring Camp

Pony Palooza offers several camps throughout the year. Camps are open to anyone, and provide riders of all levels with an opportunity to develop their riding and horsemanship skills.


Fall Camp

During our fall mini camp, campers learn basic horse care, participate in a scavenger hunt, and navigate an obstacle course on horseback. Campers have a blast participating in a mini-lesson each day as well as decorating the barn and creating fall themed crafts. Fall camp is open to beginner through advanced riders ages 4&up.

Christmas Camp

During Christmas Camp, campers learn and review basic care for horses, including how to blanket horses in the winter months, winter horse care, and much more! Campers also enjoy decorating the barn, creating holiday crafts, riding, and spending time making new friends with other horse-loving peers. Christmas Camp is a 3 hour, 2 day mini camp open to riders ages 4 and up.

Spring Camp

Spring camp is open to riders of all levels ages 4&up. From beginner riders through advanced riders jumping courses, you will be sure to have a blast and experience new challenges at camp. Activities and riding will be differentiated through strategic grouping based on age and experience levels.

During camp snacks and drinks will be provided for campers each day, though they are welcome to bring their own. During each session, campers will divided up into groups based on age and ability levels. Each group will rotate through stations which include horseback riding, crafts, games, and equine related education. 

Summer Camps

Summer camps are half day (9-1), week long (M-F) summer camps for a hands-on, innovative experience for riders of every background. Our qualified and experienced instructors serve as facilitators of the learning process. During summer camps, children get the opportunity to brush, feed, ride, care for, and bathe the horses.  Each day, riders participate in whole group, small group, and individualized (based on age and ability level) activities, semi-private horseback riding lessons, and equine related education, tailored to meet the needs of each child. 

At Pony Palooza, we emphasize the importance of safety, horsemanship, and creating lasting bonds between the horse and rider.  Your child will leave camp understanding the importance of determination and team work, with memories of camp that will leave them begging to come back. Pony camps are open to beginning (no experience required) through advanced riders ages 5 and up. The Blue Ribbon Riders Camp is open only to riders that are ready to show (you do not have to be a show team member)  comfortably doing walk/trot cross rails through jumping 3' or higher.
