Participants will learn and experience:
- Routine chores, feeding, grooming, turn out, stall cleaning and pasture care.
- Tack cleaning, basic SAFETY, first aid for horses, nutrition, bathing, braiding, and blacksmith observation.
- A riding session tailored to the ability of the child is held daily.
- We find that this comprehensive schedule allows each student to absorb the many small details of horse care in a leisurely environment that cannot be duplicated in the intense framework of a series of riding lessons.
- Equine themed crafts and activities.
- Nature walks.
- During the course of the week the objective will be to have FUN with and around horses and ponies. In order to do this we will always stress the importance of SAFETY and THOROUGHNESS in the care of horses and their equipment.
- Gardening and other agricultural fun!
