Trailblazers Horse Camp

Ages 8-14

All camps are western style riding. Summer camps include trail riding,arena lessons and games on horseback.  Of course we’ll still be doing the grooming and tacking as well and learning all about horses! Each morning starts with a safety talk and demonstration, then campers will groom their horse, and with the assistance of our counselors will saddle their horse. The arena lesson is geared to the level of each rider. Horses and ponies are matched to the riders level of ability.Some campers are beginners and some who have been coming for years are more advanced. The trail riding is through the scenic woodlands of the Brighton State Rec Area, with miles of trails to choose from each day!

Camp hours: Mon - Thurs 9am-2pm.

Cost is $275

Wranglers Horse Camp

For younger campers and beginning riders. Campers are introduced to ponies and horses and taught the basics of horse safety, grooming and saddling their horse. Each day campers will be given a short arena lesson and will also go out on a trail ride. The trail meanders through the woods and across creeks. All riders 7 and under will have their horse hand-led by one of our counselors. Campers 8 and older may control their own horse on the trail if they have the confidence to do so.
