Check out our camp video above to see some of the things we do during horse camp!
Camp is offered during spring break and also each week all summer long!
Half day sessions are available. The half days are either morning (8:30am – 12:30pm) or afternoon (1:00pm – 5:00pm).
The cost for half day camp is $295/week.
If you would like to send your child for the full day you can do so by signing up for both the morning and afternoon sessions.
For the riding portion of the program campers will need long pants and a shoe or boot with a small heel.
We have ASTM approved equestrian helmets available for them to use. If they have their own helmet they are welcome to bring it along. If so, make sure it is labeled with their name as many of the helmets look alike!
Half day campers will want to bring a snack and drink, if they are staying for the full day they will also want to bring a lunch! Campers can take a break any time they need to for a snack or a drink.
On Fridays we also have an “end of the week” horse show where campers can show off their new skills to friends and family. They can invite as many people as they would like to come and watch them ride. The horse show is one of the highlights of their week at horse riding camp.
Checks can be made out to Karla Deacon and mailed to 10333 Keller Road, Clarence, New York 14031
We also offer online registration. Simply click on the button below!
Along with learning how to ride, campers learn how to take care of their horses. They learn how to put on a halter, safely lead and groom a horse, how to feed, clean a stall and how to take care of the horse’s equipment.
Goal setting is taught and encouraged, both with horse handling and horseback riding skills.
Teamwork and partnership are learned through working with their riding partner, the horse, and working together with their “group” of campers.
They learn how to give the horses a bath, have scavenger hunts for grooming tools and group “learning games.”
There is no need to have any special equipment to attend horse camp.
You are also required to wear an ASTM certified equestrian helmet while riding. We provide helmets for campers to use so you don’t need to make any special purchases to begin camp!
However, if you wish to purchase a good starter helmet just click here.
Send the completed forms along with a nonrefundable deposit check for $75 made out to Karla Deacon to the farm at 10333 Keller Road, Clarence, NY 14031
Camp By The Day
We can usually accommodate campers for the day, however due to Covid we have suspended this option for now.
Hopefully we will be able to resume in the future when things are back to “normal.” For 1/2 day of camp the cost is $60, a full day is $120.
If You Would Like To Schedule By The Day Please Call Us At (716) 741-2346
In addition to lessons we offer various types of clinics based on riding, different disciplines, horsemanship and horse health.
In addition to regular weekly riding lessons we have several lesson series including the Beginner Series, a Training Scale Series and a Horsemanship Series.
