Throughout the summer months from May to August, we host week-long day camps for kids 4 & up. Campers will have the chance to not only learn valuable riding skills but learn about horse and stable care, equine anatomy, equipment care, and more. All while having tons of fun!
All of our summer camps are 5 days, Monday through Friday, and typically last 3 hours per day, unless otherwise noted. Our Horseback Riding Camp is available in both morning and afternoon sessions.
Horseback Riding Camp
Our horseback riding camp is our most hands-on camp, designed for riders of all levels of experience. Riders will experience a menagerie of activities each day. Students will ride for at least one hour each day, and also participate in activities such as horse grooming, stall care, and more.
Show camp is all about the shows! In this camp, riders will be introduced to the wide world of showing horses. Campers will learn show ring etiquette, varying styles of attire, and how to be show-ring ready for both horse and rider. Each show camp week will lead up to a show on Friday, complete with awards and loads of fun!
Time to saddle up and do some western riding! This camp is all things Cowboy! Campers will learn all about being a cowboy/cowgirl, from learning how to throw a rope on our (fake) steer head, to practicing some barrel racing!
Come ride on the wild side with us!
Trail camps are perfect if you want to get out on the open trail! By the end of the week, campers will be hitting the trail, weather permitting. In this camp, riders will learn how to navigate obstacles, how to stay safe on the trail and other important tips when trail riding. This is the perfect way to both enjoy horses and the great outdoors!
For those who are less interested in riding, our farm campers learn all there is to know about farm life - except riding. Campers will have the chance to interact with the wide variety of farm animals at WRA and will spend the day learning about caring for a new farm animal. We have goats, mini donkeys, mini horses, cows, chickens, dogs, cats, a pig, and of course, horses! *2-hour camp
Who said it's just about horses?
While horses are the primary aspect of Summer Camp, our campers have the chance to enjoy all the other animals that call WRA home - especially baby goats! We have all sorts of animals including chickens, goats, cats, a potbelly pig, an exotic cow, and two overly affectionate Great Pyrenese dogs making sure all our residents stay safe from predators.
What to bring to camp
All our campers will need to adhere to our lesson policies. Standard attire of long pants, tall socks and weather-appropriate tops is required. Campers should wear riding-appropriate boots, if possible. WRA supplies a selection of appropriate riding boots and helmets.
Campers should also bring a large, refillable water bottle, and a packed lunch or snack. Sunscreen and bug spray is encouraged.
