The focus of the camp is to offer a basic horsemanship program which develops:
Riding skills, Horse Care skills, Stable Management skills, and Safety skills.
- Small group lessons with safe, suitable school horses for each riding level.
- Use of cavalletti and gymnastics for balance and control exercises.
- Qualified, experienced instructors who endorse the US Pony Club Manual as a teaching tool.
- Daily free time for bonding and caring for the horses, visiting with friends at the pool or just relaxing.

Day camp is especially helpful for the younger student who has never ridden or has limited experience with horses. Activities are similar to boarding camp - except that day campers ride once daily.
