Overnight Camp / Sleepaway Camp

Girls Ages 7 - 16 years

 

Our all girls Overnight Horseback Riding Summer Camp offers both a one-week and two-week option and we welcome everyone that loves horses.  

 

The program focuses on all things related to horses incl.  Hunter/Jumper and Western riding lessons, stable management, care and grooming of horses, methods of preparing for horse shows, trail rides throughout camp.

 

 

All levels of riders are welcome. Instructions is tailored to the skill level and specific needs of each camper from beginner (balance, steering, raising trot, basic pole-work, etc.) to more advanced (seat and position in canter, jumping, etc.).

Camp Pony Gang Equestrian Services strongly believes that when developing the equestrian of tomorrow, safe horsemanship and care of animals are just as important to teach as mounted skills.

 

 

We pride ourselves in providing a fun, safe and well-rounded horse camp experience where girls can immerse themselves in the moment and enjoy themselves in a non-competitive environment.

 

Equestrian Campers also can enjoy other great camp activities such as swimming, evening programs, campfires, arts & crafts, games and more!

 

The longer Campers stay here with us at the Pony Gang Camp the more they learn, and the more time they have to establish friendships and connections that continue as lifelong sources of strength.

A fun Summer Residential Horseback Riding Camp for Girls

 

Pony Gang Equestrian Center is a family-oriented Facility. The camp keeps a limited enrollment as, statistically, it has been shown that campers receive a more wholesome experience without the intimidation of a large, full of hustle and bustle camp. Kids at our camp receive more attention and are not lost in the shadows of more competitive campers.

 

 

What happens during a Camp Day?

 

Campers ride daily in an arena lesson in the morning which focus on the fundamentals of horse and rider and receive a hands-on horse care lesson in afternoon where campers learn care/maintenance of horses like show preparations, braiding and grooming, bandaging, first aid, main pulling and more.

No horse crazy girl’s day would be complete without rolling up their sleeves and getting a little dirty! Ample time for tacking, untacking, barn chores like feeding and watering are included in the day. Our campers take great pride in caring for their horses and ponies.

Horses during Camp

Campers are matched with a horse or pony for their entire session allowing them to connect and progress together.
