Equestrian Day Camp(Ages 4 to 12)
Howdy Partners! Do you have a young’un who just can’t get enough time with our horses? Our Equestrian Day Camp program is the one for you! Campers in this program spend the majority of their day in the barn and focus on riding, horse care, and horse education. We aim to have our
equestrian day campers in at least three lessons per week, one trail ride (ages 7 and up only), and the option to participate in the horse show. We guarantee that they will ride at least four times, but it is our intention for them to ride every day! That’s a lot of riding time! In addition, this program teaches campers about the responsibilities of owning a horse such as feeding, horse care, grooming, mucking stalls, etc. The morning starts with three horse related activities, whether that be a riding lesson, an hour of horse care, or making horse treats and feeding them to our dude string. Then comes lunch (campers bring their own), and an hour of swimming or sprinklers. After water time campers have snack and then head to Recreation Period to choose from an array of activities.
This program also includes the Thursday Evening on the Ranch activity, where campers stay late with us, are provided dinner and have campfires complete with songs, skits, games, storytelling, and of course s’mores! The week culminates in our traditional Friday morning Horse Show, a last round of activities, and awards.Every camper who has completed at least one arena lesson has the option of being in the horse show, a traditional competition where campers are given ribbons for riding skills and can participate in fun horse-related games and activities.
This program is recommended only for those kids who know they want to spend the majority of theirtime with the horses! Since Cloverleaf Ranch offers a wide variety of fun activities, we encourage first time Cloverleaf campers to try the Classic Day Camp program first.
