Looking for a fun summer camp idea for your child? KJ Equestrian offers 4-day long summer camps through the months of June, July, and August that offer students ages 6 and up the opportunity to not only ride, but to learn the care and keeping of horses as well! Our program runs Tuesday through Friday, ending with a "horse show" for family and friends to come watch at the end of the week!
Our instructors are positive, energetic, and emphasize safety and fun! Students may chose to ride Western, English, or give both a try! Our camp sizes are smaller to offer individualized attention to each rider throughout the day. We have an indoor arena, outdoor arena, and miles of trails to take advantage of throughout the week.
Our horses are all extremely friendly and love their jobs! Every one of our lesson/camp horses has come from a professional riding or show career. They are all very well-trained and do a great job helping our riders gain confidence and learn correct riding. For the most part, students are paired with the same horse for the whole week. For our more advanced riding camps, students may switch horses throughout the week in order to get as much exposure to different horses as possible (the more horses you ride, the better you get!). Students are also allowed to board their own horses with us for the week, which allows horse and rider to grow and learn together!
Camps run from 9am to 3pm. Students spend time throughout the day not only riding and learning new skills in the saddle, but also learning how to properly care for the horse, including such activities as learning how to groom and tack a horse, handling, bathing, veterinary care, farrier care, stall cleaning, feeding, etc. We also allot some time for trivia and other fun games that increase the student's knowledge base of horses in general (such as breeds, anatomy, and riding disciplines)!
We ask that each student brings their own lunch each day. At the end of the week, students will take home a souvenir to remind them of all the memories they made at horse camp! We’re happy to accommodate requests for students to attend camp with their friends - just let us know on your registration form!
