Daily Vaulting & Trick Riding Program

Vaulting is a great Equestrian activity that was introduced into our camp program in 2020 to help our riders develop more balance, confidence, flexibility and body control. We teach beginner level - first on our wooden horse and from there we are advancing to the standing and then walking horse on the lunge line (we follow with this the regular learning steps from Equestrian vaulters). We teach this lesson as group lesson.


Trick Riding activity was introduced in our program at the same time as vaulting. It will help riders to develop body control and flexibility, work on their confidence and self-belief. It is a fun activity and besides horseback riding the most popular one of our campers.

Stable management 

The Barn or Stable management part of our Camp invites our campers to learn what it would mean to own a horse and take care of them.


By the end of the session, they will know that taking care of a horse isn’t simple, it is hard work, but so much fun!

"All campers are expected to participate in barn chores, including cleaning stall & feeding horses and cleaning tack."


Why do campers have to do barn chores?

It is a popular activity in every good horse camp because it is teaching the campers the important understanding of the care and work that is put into keeping horses happy and healthy.


It also teaches the campers that horseback riding and/or owning horses always come with responsibilities and work.


Barn chores we perform here at camp daily:

Each camper gets a horse/pony assigned on the beginning of the camp week and will be responsible for the care of the horses. Our counselors or barn manager will assist them if needed.


Cleaning grooming area - as in every riding school we ask every rider to leave their grooming area in the same the condition they have found it and this means every rider has to sweep their area after use.


Cleaning stalls - because horse cannot clean them themselves we Equestrians have to do it for them


Filling water - a horse drinks up to 10 gallon of water a day and in the summer even more. Water is as important for horses as it is for us to stay hydrated


Feeding Supplements - Hay and grass pasture is not enough for a working horse or even older horses to get all the nutrients and vitamins they need. So they need to receive this in form of supplements and feed.


Cleaning water through - Once a week the water troughs need to be washed out to ensure that the horses always have clean water to drink.


Sweeping barn aisle - After riding lessons each camper will clean and sweep the grooming area they used to leave it in the same condition they found it.


Cleaning tack - after every ride campers will wipe down the tack used and on the last day they will clean their tack. It is important to note that tack cleaning is not to make it look ‘pretty’. Tack cleaning is a step we must take to ensure our horses are comfortable when being ridden and to keep the tack functional.
