Old Stone is an seventy-acre farm with indoor and outdoor riding facilities, trails, a pond, and a creek. The Old Stone Summer Camps utilize these facilities as well as our great horses to provide campers with a safe, fun environment for improving their riding skills and general confidence in the care of horses. At each of our camps this year, campers will be responsible for the care of a horse and will ride each day. Campers will be divided into groups based on age, experience, and ability. Some of the fun includes:
- Games and activities each day, on horses, with horses, and about horses
- Crafts and art projects
- Visits from horse professionals such as farriers, veterinarians, dentists, massage therapists,etc. (arranged as possible)
- An afternoon swim, with lifeguard, finishes each campers’ day.

A Leg UP
At this camp we will focus on learning or improving our riding and horse management skills. The camp will include building either a stadium or Cross Country Jump. The more advanced riders will focus on jumping skills but as always classes will be geared around each campers ability level.
Along with riding and caring for your horse, we will play games, take time off to play in the creek or go for a hike in the woods. We will invite special guests such as; a lariat artist (roping), saddle repair experts, a Vet, and a Farrier. We will work on our “Natural Horsemanship” techniques (to help us with handling horses from the ground and prepare our horses for unusual or scary moments in their lives).
WHAT TO WEAR
Jodphurs, Jeans or Leggings (shorts may not be worn for riding)
