PicMonkey CollagePainted Dreams Farm summer camps give children between the ages of 6 and 16 the opportunity to participate in the world of horses. Summer camp students learn not only horse riding skills, but emphasis is placed on horsemanship skills that develop riders into safe, responsible, and educated equine enthusiasts. They strive to create riders that understand equine instinct and behaviors — a skill that will allow them to become excellent communicators with their mounts, even as a beginner, to create enhanced self esteem, and value teamwork and sportsmanship.

Summer Camp Safety is their highest priority. At summer camp, great emphasis is placed on matching the rider with his/her mount to create the most beneficial learning environment.

They also offer 2 weeks of advanced level riding summercamps, as well as an intensive CIT (Counselor in Training) upper level program.

Summer camp students have the opportunity to ride horses twice a day.

Horsemanship classes are taught daily, including approaching and leading your mount, grooming, understanding types of tack, horse and pony bathing, feed and nutrition, understanding different riding disciplines, horse and pony breeds, mane and tail braiding, horse and pony colors, and basic veterinary care. Camp staff is CPR and First Aid Certified and there is a certified Life Guard on staff.

Every Friday, the children invite their family and friends to watch as they show their stuff in our Friendly Camp Horse Show free of charge.
