Green Haven Horse Stables’s summer-camp counselors introduce youngsters ages 6–14 to their fleet of horses before instructing them on safe horsemanship practices over the course of one fun-filled week. Campers learn to approach the horse, groom it, and tack it up while also gaining an understanding of horse anatomy. Additionally, campers engage in all manner of non-horse-related activities that range from archery and roping to volleyball and arts and crafts. Children act out skits, participate in an ice-cream social, and spend a day swimming at Lake Norrell. Camps last from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and participants should bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and lunch. Check the schedule here.
Green Haven Horse Stables
The instructors at Green Haven Horse Stables guide riders of all skill levels on the path to proper horsemanship with private and group lessons as well as summer camps for children. Each lesson focuses on safety and building self-confidence, which are of the utmost importance when commanding a steed to jump over fences or ride through an airport security checkpoint. Riders may choose to ride in the styles of English, hunter jumping, Western, or dressage, with intermediate and above dressage lessons conducted by a certified USDF judge. At summer camps, children ages 6–14 receive a proper introduction to horses, spending a full week learning the subtleties of equitation and participating in fun-filled games and activities.
