Beginner Horse Camp Weekend:

This event is for our younger campers who want to be a horseback rider but aren’t yet ready to participate in a weeklong event. Participants will spend time getting to know their horse and learn the basics of horsemanship including grooming, groundwork, respect, and riding. We’ll use some of our smaller and wiser horses. Most of our time will be spent in an arena. Last year every event filled early, So we added an additional weekend.

Horse Outreach Program- Servant Event

We are looking for at least one group to help us get our Horse Outreach Program ready for the summer of 2017. Participants will help groom horses, clean-up our tack, build campsites, clear trails, and generally help us get the horses ready. There will be at least an hour or two of riding each day. The cost is higher because of more travel, offsite meals, and horseback riding.

We will have Bible study, devotions around the campfire, and our head wrangler will share God’s gift of creation as demonstrated through the horses and natural surroundings the servants will experience. They will also come to understand the importance of our Horse Outreach Program to several hundred youth who participate in it.

Dates and Rates:  

#1 May 27-June 1  ($250) 

# 2 June 3-8 ($285)

Rate:  see above

Deposit: $75
