Affinity Farm presents a 5-day program open to children ages 8 to 15 years of age. The camp runs from 10:00am to 12:00pm Monday through Friday. The cost is $225.00 per camp session (week). We have camps during Winter break, Spring break, and during July and August.
Affinity Farm hopes to provide your kids with a positive experience around horses. Beginner riders are introduced to horses and taught basic horsemanship and horseback riding skills in a safe and friendly environment. Basic horsemanship skills are horse safety, leading, grooming, tacking, and general horse care. The Riding portion of camp covers mounting, proper seated position, how to hold reins, walking, halting, steering, and perhaps trotting, depending on progress during the week. Campers will also participate in a variety of un-mounted activities such as learning basic horse anatomy, learning saddle and tack parts, tacking and untacking horses, tack maintenance, horse grooming and washing, and daily barn maintenance.
Please have your child wear long legged pants to protect their legs and comfortable riding boots or tennis shoes. Please bring water bottle and ASTM-SEI approved helmet daily. If your child does not have a riding helmet one can be provided.
Max of 6 campers per session- Registration is now open and being taken on a first come, first serve basis. Payment is due with the completed registration forms.
