The Hoofin' It Day Camp is an intensive day of horses for youth of all levels of experience. This is a quick version of our Adventure camp hits on all aspects of the horse experience in just one day!

This is the perfect camp for familes who are here on vacation and want an all-day activity for their kids while they visit some wineries, mingle with some grownups or just want to take a nap!

Hoofin' It One Day Camp offers a unique way to have fun, while cramming a whole lot of education into one day. Our goal is to mingle the fun of horseback riding with learning about riding skills, horse behavior and general riding information. Character building is a huge part of this camp because character is a huge part of the way horses respond to us. Our camp programs give a complete education, from barn management and equine care to groundwork and riding.

Campers spend the day:

Learning how to feed and care for horses

Educational Games about horse anatomy, body language, tack and more

A trail ride (or lesson if weather not permitting hitting the trails)

All Camps go from 9:00am to 4:30pm. Early drop-off or late pick-up may be available but only for added cost.

For a more in depth riding camp experience, check out our Youth Adventure Camp!

The focus of our programs is not shows, ribbons or external success, but the ability to ride safely in the arena and on trail in real life situations and to independently navigate obstacles. While our lessons do instruct using classic riding techniques, the goal of our program is to develop confidence, real-life skill and the knowledge necessary to ride or own your own horse.

Things that campers will need every day:

Packed Lunch

Bug Spray

Boots - no sneakers or sandals allowedSpare pair of Shoes

Gloves (for working in the barn and perhaps riding)

Proper attire: pants, comfortable shirts, good socks. Please tell your kids to dress intelligently!

We have helmets if you don't have your own.

Please remind your children before they come that working with horses requires horse care as well as riding. We are firm believers that if you don't take care of horses they won't take care of you and at the stables and chores is a large part of this experience. The better their attitudes and the more efficient focused, and responsible they are the more they get to ride. 
Please also remind them that this is not a competition in terms of their riding and none of them have anything to prove - this is supposed to be fun and an opportunity for personal growth as well as growth as an entire group. 
Lastly, they may or may not get their first choice in horses - some horses are coming off of pregnancies, some may be lame or injured, and a variety of other factors. One of these factors is that we want to select the horse that will teach them the most throughout the week and offer them the best learning experience. The mantra I will be telling the kids is "There is no bad horse, only mistaken riders."
