Horses For A Change at Frog Hollow Farm

Summer Camp      

Ages 6 - 16 (younger at discretion of the farm)

Each day at camp, we ride, either in the ring or on the wooded trails. Riding instruction is age appropriate and tailored to the prior riding experience of each camper. More experienced riders may work on jumping, for example, while newcomers to the sport practice walking and trotting on the lunge line. Campers learn how to take good care of their equine partners by getting horses ready for lessons and learning about grooming, feeding, care of equipment, stall cleaning, horse anatomy, and health. For variety, we may practice bareback riding, vaulting (a gymnastic activity on a moving horse) and games like "red light, green light" on horseback. Weather permitting, we swim and play in the pool. At the end of the week, campers put on a horse show for parents and friends. The atmosphere at Frog Hollow Farm camp is supportive and non-competitive. Frog Hollow Farm camp is about having fun with horses safely and knowledgeably. Enrollment is limited to no more than 10 campers per session, to allow for careful supervision and individual attention.  Please contact us for more information about our 2017 sessions.
