What being a kid is all about. This was our second week of "summer camp" here. My daughter made great friends, enjoyed the staff, and of course LOVED the horses. Best camp in the area!

My daughters are really enjoying this camp. They have enjoyed grooming their horses and learning how to ride. They've come home with random bits of farm knowledge.

Response from mdarch | Reviewed this property |
Yes, that's correct. They do offer 1 hour and 2 hour trail rides, but the child must be 6 years old to ride alone for the trail rides, so that's how my 4 year old ended up on the pony ride since she wanted her own horse.
