---------------------------------

Meadowlark Horse Camp is an educational camp for horse-crazy kids specifically designed to give them as much hands-on time with the horses as possible. We offer camps for English riders of all levels, whether you're looking for a great place to send the kids for an introduction to horses or to springboard your young equestrian's riding up to the next level. We also have a low student to teacher ratio, with only six campers per instructor, and either a two-to-one or one-on-one camper to counselor ratio, depending on experience levels. This allows your camper to get the best experience out of their week spent with us.

Summer Day Camps are $400 a week, and run from 9AM-2PM, Monday through Friday.

A Day in the Life at Meadowlark Horse Camp:

  • Campers are dropped off at 9AM (with bag lunch and water, long pants and a sturdy boot of some sort) and the first part of our Monday is spent participating in games to determine riding ability and level of experience. The campers are then assigned to their horses for the week. While campers may have a partner who shares their same horse, their horse is definitely "theirs" for the week. 

  • Horses are brought out of their stalls and fields by our experienced counselors and campers learn to groom, saddle, bridle and lead their horses safely. Meadowlark is happy to provide ASTM helmets for our campers, and all campers must wear sturdy boots or shoes of some sort (no flimsy tennis shoes or crocs!) 

  • Campers spend at least an hour in the saddle working on building their skills as riders. We play games, do obstacle courses or work on more formal exercises to develop rider skills, depending on the level of the riders in each group.

  • When not in a riding lesson, campers are in ground lessons which include: horse first aid and nutrition, horse behavior and body language, nature walks, stall mucking races, horse drawing lessons and more!

  • After our lessons for the day, campers eat a bag lunch and work on a camp craft including things like tie-dye, workbooks, painting horse shoes and more! 

  • If we have any time at the end of the day we play camp games or do another groundwork lesson until parents come for pick-up at 2PM. 

  • Fridays are "show" days, where each group does a presentation for friends and family! Campers are released after their presentation, or may stay and watch the other presentations.
