Rodeo & Circus Trick Riding
In this part of our Camp each camper will take part in our Trick riding lessons on horseback of 1 horse. Each day Campers will learn something new and exiting.
The group lesson will be split in two parts Rodeo Trick riding 45 Minutes in the morning and Circus Trick riding 45 Minutes in the afternoon.
Roman riding is a part of Trick riding, just that here you are using 2 horses for your performance instead of 1.
It is fun and we will teach you how to do it safely and correctly.
This will also be a group lessons and run around 45 Minutes a day.
Here we offer each camper the unique opportunity to do gymnastics on horseback! Vaulting may help campers with their balance, flexibility, and confidence on a horse as they learn the specific moves (known a curs). Campers will perform what they learned in our Horse show on Friday's.
This part will be offered in a 45 Minute Group lesson.
Trick Horse Training
Campers learn how to teach ponies and horses tricks like shaking the head, Yes and No, sneezing, smiling, and front feet on a pedestal.
Campers will use one of our Camp horses/ponies for this training during the 45 Minute daily.
Hobby Horse at Pony Gang
As every time during the past years of Pony Gang Camp we will this year again craft some Stick horses with the children. But unlike the years before, we will this year (NEW 2020) offer the children to learn more about the new sport Hobby Horse in the USA. We will show them how to do Dressage pattern with their stick horses, do some jumping courses and if the children are interested also go and do some Barrel and Pole pending time.
Campers then can put a little dressage Quadrille together and perform this on our Horse Show Day. It is real fun to do!
End of the Week Horse Show
On Friday children will put a Horse Show together in which they will perform and show what they have learned during the week under saddle, on horseback or on the ground.
hosted by the trainers that will accompany us here at Pony Gang for this awesome camp!
