This camp will include Natural Horsemanship classes, riding lesson, snack time, craft, and a few farm chores (like brushing horses, feeding chickens, and tending to some plants). We will have some quiet focus time with the animals, teaching children to calm down the business in their minds to connect with the animals. We will also have a lot of physically active time time so clothing that can get dirty is highly recommended.

The focus of this camp is to build confidence in the children and guide them to find a true love and connection with the animals and the land. On this farm we practice Natural Horsemanship and mindfulness with our animals so this education will be included in the camps.

Children will need to bring clothing that can get dirty and wet, as well as a change of clothing incase something gets too dirty…. Please send along a snack and water bottle for your child.
