SUMMER CAMP 2017
Whether you are a beginner who wants to learn to ride or an experienced rider who wants to improve your skills, there is a place for you at Patty Miller Stables Summer Riding Camp! Campers range in age from 5-16. Three 2-week sessions are available. From 9am to 3pm we fill our days with horses, arts & crafts, friends, and fun!
Riding and time with the horses is a big part of the day. Campers are split into small riding groups based on their ability and previous riding experience. Our goal is to build each rider's skills and confidence. The small group environment allows our instructors to offer individualized attention and develop riders at their own pace.
Horse care allows all of our campers to have hands-on experience taking care of their own horse . Campers work in groups to groom, tack, bathe, and care for their horse. While time in the saddle develops riding skills, the barn lesson teaches all aspects of horsemanship and caring for horses. Campers learn about grooming, tacking, tack care, horse bathing, and horse breeds including colors and markings. More advanced campers continue their education learning about feed, shoeing, caring for injuries, wrapping, and show prep.
