Every year Summer Horse Camp is a hot ticket item! Kids will spend the week learning horsemanship and making new friends. Campers will learn how to care for horses as well as how to walk, trot, canter and trail ride. The culmination of camp is a horse show with awards for all.

  • The cost is $325 per week, with a $50 deposit at the time of registration.  Barrel Camp is $150.
  • Camp begins the first week in June and runs through the first week in August.
  • Camp hours are Monday through Thursday, 8am to 4pm and Friday from 8am until after the show and awards.
  • Bring a lunch and a water bottle with a strap each day to camp.
  • Please email Amanda Gurley at to reserve your desired week this summer!

A $50.00 deposit is required. 

We are currently accepting applications on a first come first served basis.


  • We offer online payment for your convenience with an additional $10 fee to cover the PayPal fee. $335 will be the final cost if you pay via PayPal and the Barrel camp fee is $5 so final cost to you will be $155.  You can also pay by check and mail it to our office (address to the right).
