You can choose between two different horseback trail rides, which are offered as optional activities.Activities will be tailored to the group, and may include a field trip to a local equestrian event or facility, a riding lesson or trail ride, demos of riding, driving, or training, and in season, for lucky campers, observation of breeding or foaling.

Call your farrier, I am guessing they will have a stash.


You need to do something that gives them stuff to take home. Some crafty horse project.
Even if it is as simple of fabric paint on t-shirts.

Are they assigned a horse each for the whole camp? If so you could take a photo of each with their horse and give them

We can't give trail rides. My insurance won't cover it and we don't have many around where we're at. There are lots of loose dogs too, which can make the horse's jump a bit. I don't want to risk anyone falling off...

Duh, I'll call the farrier, lol. I did make them "riding journals" that they get to decorate. I'll stop by Hobby Lobby and see if they have any horse-y craft things. That might be fun to do on Friday. It may rain...

No, I have three horses that the six girls are rotating on. My other two lesson horses are "advanced" and all of the camp girls are beginner to intermediate. My next camp I will have two advanced girls that will ride my other horses. I could do the photo project that week.

Most of what I do has been covered, but one other thing my campers have always loved was "What IS That?" you send them one at a time into the tack room to pick out a piece of equipment that they have no idea what is or what it's for, then you let everyone take a guess. "Prize" to the one that gets the closest. (we used mini snickers or dumdums) Then you explain what it is, and even show them if you can. This is also great for rainy days, because it ties up time, and you don't have to plan anything special to do it.

You can do the photo project even if they are not assigned a horse. Ask them which horse they want to have a photo with and take it. If you get horse shoes they can make frames using them and then they have some place to put their photo. Or buy way cheap frames at hobby lobby and some horse themed decorations and they can decorate their frames and then have their photo to go in it.

That's a really good idea! I'll have to suggest that to my boss.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...
