Come on out and join the fun at horse riding camp! Spruce Meadow Farm offers one of the best riding camps programs in Western New York.

Campers learn horsemanship skills, have a daily riding lesson, make new friends, get lots of fresh air and exercise, learn how to set and achieve goals and much, much more!

Check out our camp video below to see some of the things we do during horse camp!

 

Horse Riding Camp Is A Great Place To Learn New Skills And Make New Friends!

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.”

 

 What To Bring To Horse Camp

You don’t need to have any special equipment for horse riding camp. Campers will need long pants and a shoe or boot with a small heel for riding.

They will also be required to wear an ASTM approved equestrian helmet when riding. We supply helmets that they may use while they are here, or, you can bring or purchase your own if you wish.

You can also send along shorts and sneakers for summer camp. When the weather is on the hot side the kids may want to use the bathroom to change into cooler clothing.

If your child is staying for 1/2 day you will want to send along a snack and drink. If they are staying for the whole day you will also want to send a lunch. Campers can take a break any time they need to for a snack or a drink.

We also ask that each camper bring along a disposable or inexpensive camera for a scrapbooking or other photo project of their week at camp. We start the project on Monday and ask that campers bring their developed pictures in with them on Friday.

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.
