Safety is stressed at all times along with proper horsemanship skills. We will learn about health care, physi- cal fi tness of the horse, proper nutrition, transportation, anato- my and physiology, and of course grooming and tack care. Things like proper dental care and hoof


care are also covered by leading profession- als. This is a very hands-on camp and we encourage all students to try their hand at everything from driving a horse hooked to a cart, giving shots, worming, and of course cleaning stalls! At the end of each day we will cool down with a swim in the pool. Camp is $375. A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot.
