Summer Camp  Hobby horse classes  - Camden, SC - Pony Gang Equestrian Service

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!
