Spring Break Camp

Our 2022 Spring Break Camp is FULL! We look forward to seeing you next year or for our upcoming programs.

Who Is Complete Equestrian Spring Break Horse Camp for?

Our focus is on safety and having fun learning with our horses! We offer several different programs for our summer adventures!

  • CIT (Counselor In Training) for ages 13-16 years is geared toward developing leadership skills, organization skills and confidence teaching horse skills and riding horses. These riders will also be working on their own personal equestrian skills and journey. We offer a 6:1 student to instructor ratio.
  • Our Junior Rider program (ages 9-12 years) is geared towards learning confidence and equine knowledge on and off the horse. We love to help foster a deeper bond with horses. We want to instill a passion for the fun in horses. We offer a 4:1 student to instructor ratio.
  • Our Young Riders program (5-8 years) is based on learning the skills that will boost their confidence and joy with horses. These younger people will have extra attention to help with their fine motor skills, balance and be coached with joy! We offer a 3:1 student to instructor ratio.

What do we do at Spring Break Camp?

Riding and Vaulting

For our Spring Break Riding Camp, we are accepting all levels of riders from beginner through advanced. The goal for riding camp is fun and learning new skills. For our Spring Break Vaulting Camp, we are accepting those who are already familiar with vaulting. The goal for vaulting camp is to get vaulters ready for competition season with drills, barrel work and horse work.

Safety is our number one goal. On the first day the campers will learn the safest ways to be around horses. They will get to learn how to work with the horses on the ground, tying, grooming and tacking.

Riding- All campers are required to wear an ASTM certified riding helmet. Bike helmets cannot be used. We have several to use or you can bring your own. Campers must also wear long pants for riding and a boot with a heel. Campers will be taught based on ability level. Beginners are at a walk, intermediate at a walk and trot, and advanced at a walk, trot and canter. We will be teaching English, Western and Vaulting throughout the week. The campers can look forward to games, patterns, drill team and rail work in their lessons. After their ride, they get some more hands on horse time while they cool down, unsaddle and groom their horses.

Vaulting- Our vaulting program will be geared towards getting vaulters ready for the upcoming competition season. We will be working on compulsory drills and skills on the barrel and on the horse. Our focus on the freestyle will be to improve performance scores, content scores and artistry on the barrel and the horse. We will also be doing mats and conditioning exercises that will strengthen and improve your vaulting.

Horsey Chores

Who knew chores could be so much fun? On a hot day it’s really fun to clean a water tank, or sit in the shade and polish bits and bridles. Campers will also help with turning horses out to pasture, cleaning stalls, bringing horses in from pasture and feeding their equine partners every day. This gives campers a chance to learn how much it really takes to care for their favorite animals.

Equine Classroom

There is way more to horses than riding and vaulting, and we feel that it is so important to teach that. The campers will get to play games, get worksheets and do hands on activities. We have a different lesson plan for every day of camp, so there is always something new to learn!!

Art

Campers will get to go home at the end of the day with an arts and crafts project that they made. The crafts are all horse related, fun and creative.

The vaulting campers can choose to swap out art for additional barrel work as an option if they would like.
