Youth Camp

Youth Camp

Is your child crazy about horses? Treat them with a week at our Hoofer Riding Club Day Camp. In addition to daily riding instruction, students learn how to understand and care for their horses. When they aren’t working with the horses, students spend time playing games lead by our fun and energetic counselors. Camp wraps up with a mini horse show on Friday for parents to see their children in action. Our goal is for campers to have fun while developing a life-long appreciation for our equine partners.

Camp runs Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 3:30pm with after camp care available until 5pm. Summer camp is open to children ages 8 and older. Experienced riders should consider our Advanced Summer Camp and applying to be a Counselor in Training (CIT), Assistant Counselor, or Senior Counselor.

Advanced Summer Camp
Our Advanced Camp is open to riders comfortable riding canter patterns and cantering in a group. Advanced camp is very horse intensive. Students ride twice per day and non-riding time is filled with guest lectures, discussions on riding and horse care theory, and opportunities to practice horse care like braiding and wrapping. Throughout the week, Advanced Camp students will practice jumping, dressage, bareback riding, and riding outside the arena.

Students are encouraged to register for the Hoofer Horse Show at the end of each session. (Horse show fees are not included, but instructor fees for the weekend will be waived.)

Boarding is available on a first come first served basis for riders who want to bring their horse to camp.
