Have your children ever wondered what it's like to spend their entire day with horses? Would he or she love to become a "barn rat", learn to ride and play games on horseback, or simply just give a horse a big hug?
If so, come join our Summer Riding Camp! We offer a full day camp from 9am to 3pm that caters to all riders, from beginner all the way to advanced. West Wind teaches both disciplines of riding - Western and English - in a safe, friendly environment. Our staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Our horses are kind, gentle, and forgiving.
A day at West Wind's Summer Camp includes full riding sessions seasoned with games on horseback and exercises to strengthen any rider's abilities. Campers are also taught proper grooming and horse care, and learn many aspects of the equine world: breed differences, nutrition, tack care, and everything that goes on at a working barn. Arts and crafts are always a favorite. One of the best aspects of our program is the Friday horse show, where family and friends are invited to watch and cheer on their favorite rider, as well as celebrate all they've learned. Campers will also get the opportunity to meet and learn from various equine professionals, such as farriers, dentists, and even veterinarians.
And don't worry about those occasional rainy days, they're never a problem for us here at West Wind. We offer an indoor riding arena, as well as an air conditioned lounge for lunch and crafts.
Campers do not need any previous experience with horses to attend our camp.
Camp is run by experienced trainers and adult assistants. One of our trainers is EMT and CPR certified.
We are also offering a half day for younger children, as well as after camp for those who need extended hours. Our half day camp runs from 9am to 12pm, and includes our morning ride and activities and crafts.
