Join Hobby Horse Farms for our 2021 Summer Riding Camp program. We will be offering 4 different weeks geared towards different levels of young equestrians. We will have Beginner camps geared towards getting those young horse enthusiasts introduced in a safe and fun program to horses. Our Horseman’s camp is for those who have completed a camp previously or have taken lessons on horses before and are familiar with grooming, tacking and the basics of riding. We will take a more in depth view on horsemanship and riding. Our advanced camp is for those with experience walk, Trot and canter, as well as small jumps. This camp is our Show camp, teaching riders how to navigate a show course, groom and turn horses out for a show, as well as learning the basics behind course design for our Jumpers.
