This summer you can treat your horse-crazy child to a week long summer day camp at Canopy Oak Trails. We teach from beginner to more advanced riding lessons in the round pen, arena and trails on our fenced in property. Indoors they'll learn to draw horses from a professional artist & make crafts projects - like decorating a t-shirt and a pencil holder, painting a real horseshoe, picture frame, miniature wooden horse & more.
There will be presentations on horse breeds & colors, farriery (horse shoeing & trimming), horse nutrition, horse care/grooming, tack (saddles & such), groundwork, natural horsemanship, jumping, barrel racing & lot's more. Campers will have the opportunity to learn a little about what it takes to own a horse by helping feed, groom, provide hoof care & tack up a horse --as well as muck stalls & clean water troughs, if they like.
Most campers will spend an average of 3-4 hours a day with their horse, riding twice each day. They'll learn to ride safely, under close supervision in an enclosed area before riding out on the trails.
On Friday, family is invited to attend the "horse show." Campers will present a mounted relay demonstration, a horse obstacle course & much more.
