Camps

Learn how to choose a horse camp, what types of camps are out there involving horses, and read stories from riders who have gone to camp. There are a lot of benefits to going to camp, and we know that a camp with horseback riding is the best kind of all. Some camps allow riding once a day, some make it a daily activity, some focus on horses as an all-day thing with a total immersion in equine-centered activities. There are options for all ages and a variety of time spans, with day-only options, overnight options, and those that last a week or more. There are even those for adults or for families to attend. Some facilities provide the horses while others allow you to bring your own. Whatever option you choose, it’s sure to be the time of a lifetime. Horse Illustrated, and its sister publication of Young Rider magazine, offers a variety of articles on horse camps.
