Iron Horse Summer Camp is a terrific place for kids to learn all about horses, meet new friends, and have tons of fun. We have over 15 acres of lush green pastures, private paddocks, both indoor and outdoor riding arenas for all weather riding, exceptional trainers, and a staff dedicated to making your child’s experience the absolute best!
The camps are $500 per week. Our camp is offered for children from age 8 and older. Children are to be dropped at 9 am and picked up no later than 4 pm. Early or late pick up can be arranged for an additional fee. Each day builds on the skills learned the day before so by the end of the week we have a camp full of confident riders ready to show off what they’ve learned.
Campers are to bring their own lunch each day along with a change of clothes and a bathing suit-just in case we get a little wet or dirty! Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Iron Horse camps are for those horse crazy boys and girls who are just not happy unless they are around their favorite animal! Each rider is assigned a horse that matches that rider’s ability level and then they stay together for the week getting to know each other. There are two rides per day which includes formal instruction, bareback balancing, and games on horseback. There are arts and crafts activities offered daily. During the hottest part of the day, we work in a sports activity that involves some splashing fun!
Barn Talk & Stable Management
While one group is riding, another group is in the cool comfort of the barn office getting hands-on instructional classes on the practical care of horses. More advanced riders dig deeper into feed, hoof care, common ailment and their cures, and stable management. We also make sure our riders become more familiar with different horse breeds, markings, and basic horse anatomy. When time permits we squeeze in lessons on nutrition, braiding, show rules, costumes, and much, much more!
