Summer Riding Day Camps

2020 Camp Dates: July 13-17 (at Summer Breeze) AND August 3-7 (at Summer Breeze) 9:30am – 2:30pm | Ages 5-15


Each summer, Summer Breeze Stables offers a day camp that teaches horsemanship and horse care for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders ages 5 to 15. Our camps are a great place for young riders to develop responsibility, gain knowledge, enjoy outdoor exercise, and practice artistic skills. Campers are always under the careful supervision of trained counselors. Campers bring their own lunches, and we provide snacks and all craft materials.

Of course we ride horses, but we have a range of other activities for our daily sessions, which start at 9:30 and finish at 2:30. Guest presenters use classroom discussion, films, and hands-on practice to teach knowledge of minor horse ailments, elementary horse anatomy, horse show protocol and tradition, saddlery, and shoeing. Certified instructor Rachel Martin leads a scavenger hunt to teach colors, markings, and ear expressions (which are a great form of horsey communication!).

We also make hand crafts. Past years’ craft projects include horse-tail bookmarks, horsey-themed collaged jewelry boxes, and horse-stall-inspired pin boards. In summer of 2015, Annie Izumi, the owner of Barn Owl Studio in Maseppa, joined us to share the fun of equine painting in a hands-on session where campers created their own painted projects.
