Camp Schedule

Looking to fill that summertime with some equine fun?  We have two spaces remaining for overnight camp the week of June 18th through the 24th and five spaces total remaining for the week of July 10th-14th for both day and overnight camp options for the horse lover in your life.

Overnight Camp

Summer campers arrive 1-3pm on the 18th

Adios, Friends!  Certified horsemanship campers will depart at 8-10am on the 24th

Day Camp

Our equine day camp program runs from 8am-5pm

If children wish to bring a book they may do so.  There will be an opportunity for quiet time during afternoon activities from 3-5pm where campers may retire to their bunks, or after they get ready for bed and before lights out is called.

Cowboys and cowgirls are at the heart of culture of this beautiful state we call home.  
As cowboy culture continues to blend into the pot of Texas, we hope to provide an 
opportunity to young people who want to learn about horsemanship and how to enjoy 
these impressive animals in a modern world that blends the past and strives to keep 
room for horses in our future.
