Camp Details

Join us for horseback riding summer camp! Camp is open to those 6-years of age (must be fully potty-trained) and older, and all experience levels are welcome – even those with no experience can join. Each camper will enjoy hands on experience learning about horses from the ground up with safety as the #1 priority with experienced and certified instructors. We also enjoy crafts, games, and non-swimming water activities! 

There will also be demos from various industry professionals – from farriers, to veterinarians and acupuncturists to the equine dentist!

*Advanced camp*

A week of camp dedicated to advanced riders only! This week of camp will offer opportunities for advanced campers to learn and grow in their horsemanship skills. Details about the advanced camp option can be found below. If not a current student, please send a video of student riding before signing up so we can make sure it’s an appropriate fit. Send video ›
We also offer early drop off (8:00am to 9:00am) and late pick up (4:00pm to 5:00pm) to help with parents in need to get to work! $15 additional per hour or $30 total for early drop off and late pick up, each day needed. If you are need of before or after care, please let us know before the camp season starts.
Slots are VERY LIMITED. A non-refundable deposit of $300 per camper is required to reserve your spot. Total camp cost for 1-week is $600 per camper. Full payment is required by 6/1/24.

Advanced Camp Information

Week #3 (7/8/24 – 7/12/24, with Merideth) of camp is geared towards advanced riders only. We have a lot of exciting plans being made for new activities and experiences geared towards advanced riders

Requirements: Campers signing up for advanced camp need to be proficient and confident at the Walk, Trot and Canter. Experience jumping is not necessary, but is encouraged since some activities may include opportunities for jumping. Campers who are current H&H students should consult with their trainer to confirm that they qualify before signing up. Campers who ride outside of H&H should discuss theses requirements with their trainer and email us at to confirm eligibility before registering. All campers registered for this week will undergo a skills assessment on the first day of camp. If it is determined by the head counselor that a camper does not meet these requirements, they will be asked to switch to another camp week. Please keep in mind that camp fees are non-refundable, so please make sure that it is the right fit for you/or your child before registering. 

Off-farm Trips: There is the potential for the advanced campers to travel off-farm for other riding and educational opportunities. These activities could include but are not limited to, cross-country schooling, visiting a local horse rescue, or traveling to a local foaling center. We will have more information related to specific activites as we head into the spring. However, we want parents/registrants to be aware that these off-farm trips might have an additional cost associated with them that is not covered by the $600 camp fee. For example, traveling to the local cross-country schooling facility would cost each camper a $35 facility fee. Any campers or parents uncomfortable with their child traveling off-farm, or paying additional fees for off-farm activities should avoid signing up for the advanced camp as we are unable to leave some campers behind while others leave the farm.
