2021 Summer Camps | Registration Now OPEN

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 2'6 and campers will be grouped accordingly.

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 teamwork, with memories of camp that will leave them begging to come back.
We will continue to enforce the CDC guidelines for COVID protocols. Masks will be required to be worn when unmounted and social distancing will be enforced.

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.
