Summer Camps

What is the current policy for Complete Equestrian due to the COVID-19 challenges?

We would like to thank those of you who have already registered for our summer camps in 2020. We truly appreciate your support during these trying and complex times. In a situation that seems to be evolving daily, we are closely following the recommendation of the American Camp Association and the Center for Disease Control. At this time, we believe it is too early to announce any cancellation or changes to our summer program without more in depth and specific information. In the event that our summer camps will need to be cancelled or changed, we will offer a refund or credit to those who have already registered. For those who are registered, but would like to move to later dates we are accepting requests to change registration dates. Please know our hearts are with you and your family during these unsure and challenging times. Many blessings to you all!

Who Is Complete Equestrian 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 Summer Camp?

Riding and Vaulting

Safety is our number one goal. On the first day the campers will learn the safest ways to be around horses. Campers will have their own horse for the full week. They will get to learn how to work with the horses on the ground, tying, grooming and saddling. After this they are ready to ride! 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.

Lunch and Swimming

After riding we will enjoy lunch and swimming. We have a heated in ground pool with a slide! We also have many pool toys and floaties. This is fabulous on those hot summer days after a long ride. There is at least one instructor present pool side when children are at the pool. Safety is always top of our list!

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 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.

Friday Horse Show

On Friday at 3pm you will be invited to a horse show! Along with a beautifully decorated horse, you will get to see how your child’s horse skills have progressed. Be prepared for a Vaulting Show, followed by individual patterns, and a team drill as a grand finale!
