Q:

I would like to sign my 10 year old daughter up for your one week summer camp. She is quite interested in learning more about horses and rescue animals. She keeps asking when she will be old enough to volunteer at a shelter. How much of the summer camp time is spent with the horses? Would she be assigned a specific horse? I would rather just send her to lessons if there is a lot of extra play time involved in this camp.

Hi Thanks for emailing. Yes she is assigned a specific horse but she will ride different horses each day to expose her to other horses. Although there will be a lot of fun during camp this is defintely not a play camp:) They have homework and presentations each day along with lectures for a vet tech, farrier, animal massage therapist. Here is an overview of our camps - but please feel free to call me for more detailed information:) Thanks Sarah 513-312-5419 Summer Camp Information For the mini camps and Summer camps the children will be assigned a horse to take care of each day. (the same horse) Normally they will be paired with a partner. They will be responsible for the care of the animal each day including feed, stall, grooming. They will be riding each day. Depending on their skill level will depend how quickly they advance. I love beginners:) Many of my riding students also attend the camps. I have been riding since I was eight. I am extremely cautious and may go slower than some other lesson barns but I try to be as safe as possible. For the more advanced there will be small ground poles (english) barrels (western) A couple of "trail rides" in our pasture. Their will be group and private riding. They will learn leading, lunging etc. I have a farrier, vet tech and horse massage therapist that will come out and speaks with them. We also have a mini with a cart so we will teach some basic cart training. We have a hobby farm so they will draw a name each day and take care of that animal and go home and research that animal. The next day they have to do a presentation to the class. We currently have chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats, dogs, cats, turtles and fish. Also many children want horses so I want to teach them the cost. They will be given "money"at the beginning of the week and then have to "pay" for the horses feed, vet bills, farrier, training etc. There will be crafts and farm work such as cleaning stalls and general "work" around the farm. There is also some free time for the children to hang out and play on our slides, sandbox etc. Last year the older girls hung out in our magnolia tree as their spot. At the end of each camp we will have a horse show for their friends and family. Each of the camps will be a bit different so if your child decides to do 1 or more he/she will not be bored I promise :) We also have a bouncy house, slip n slide for some other fun. We sometimes have themes such as dirty day. The kids painted one of our horses gave all the horses baths and generally had a good muddy time. This year we are also incorporating a garden. The children will get the chance to work in the garden a little bit each day. Hopefully at the end of the week they will begin to see how a hobby farm runs.

Q:

My 8 yr old daughter and her best friend would like to take the lessons together. Would that be okay? (I'm purchasing a set of 3 and her friends mom is purchasing a set of 3)

amanda h.  asked on  Jun 27, 2012

A:

That would be fine. Please note though the lesson would still only be an hour long and it would be one groupon per child. Until they are more advanced riders we only have 1 person on one horse at a time so this would shorten there riding time. They can do the grooming, leading, together and audit while one rides. We just need to coordinate schedules for lesson times:) Thanks Sarah

Q:

I wanted to take my 2 girls at the same time as another family takes their 2 girls. Can 4 girls get lessons at the same time?

Amy B.  asked on  Jun 27, 2012

A:

They can but the lesson would still only be an hour long and if they are beginner riders we would only have them on one horse at a time so this would lessen their riding time. I keep one horse and one rider for safety sake until I see they can progess to more than one horse/pony in the arena at a time. Thanks Sarah

I have 2 sons, can i buy one for each of them? so they can take the lessons together?

giovanna  asked on  Jun 27, 2012

A:

Sure. Please remember they are more than welcome to do them together but it would still be 1 groupon per child and the lesson would still be an hour. Thanks! Sarah

Q:

I have two sons, 3 and 5 years old, and wanted to get them each a groupon for their birthdays. Does this go against the "limit one per person" rule, or is it o.k since they are gifts and for two different people? Thank you! Christina
