*Scavenger Hunt. One year the person making it was a little bit eccentric and we got some fun orders. Example..."Capture a live fly". That was a hard one
*Divide the kids into teams and have them design a barn. Whoever designs the best barn wins.
*Divide the kids into teams and have them write down all the breeds they know. Whoever writes down the most REAL breeds wins.
*Man Hunt! Or tag if you want to be boring about it :p.
*Name Frisbee to help everyone learn names. (Throw a frisbee and whoever catches it has to say their name).
*Musical Stalls (on horseback). Set up ground poles as stalls. They have to get their horses into a "stall" before the music stops.
*I don't know if it's called anything, but set up two ground poles WIDE apart. Have riders (one at a time) ride between the poles and stop their horse for a few seconds. Decrease the distance between the poles every time everyone's gone. Whoever's the last one standing wins. You can do this walking or trotting. I guess you could also do it cantering if the riders are advanced enough and you don't make the space TOO narrow lol.
*Set up a course. Have riders do different things at different place. Example: At barrel A they have to drop their stirrups. The wall near the weird crack has a rag they have to pick up. Etc. See who can complete the course the most correctly and quickly.
*Simon Says. (On horseback. Have them put their hands on their helmets, etc. Be creative).
*Follow the Leader. (Have an instructor or older rider lead a line of kids on horseback. Whatever the leader does the kids also have to do).
*Walk and trot races. Canter if they can.
*Hold a knowledge competition. Divide the riders into teams and ask them basic horse questions. Whoever gets the most questions right gets a small prize or even just bragging rights. A cool twist at the end is having the teams decide if they want to "bet" their points on a final question, and if so how many. It adds drama
*Have a show at the end of the week (I can't remember if you already do) and spend a little time practicing for it each day. Trust me when I say that the riders will LOVE this.
*Water Balloon Battle
*I might think of more later. I LOVE horse camps
