HORSE CAMPS

Have a BLUE RIBBON week at Hidden Hills Summer Horse Camps!

5 days, 4 1/2 hours a day = over 22 hours of horses!

Whether in the barn, in the arena, or on the trail, campers learn many aspects of horsemanship and horse care, from chores and grooming to a solid seat (Western or English) and good communication with their horses. With only 4-6 campers per camp session, our experienced and caring instructors are able to focus on and challenge the abilities of each camper. Camp sessions are a week long, and at the end of each week, campers put on a show for their parents to demonstrate what they’ve learned.

We try to organize our camps so that riders of the same skill level and age range ride together as much as possible. However, we may combine camps if necessary so that we can fit in as many aspiring riders as possible. Unless otherwise specified, camps are for boys and girls, run from Monday to Friday from 9:00-1:30, and are $300/session. If your camp date is full, we will be happy to put your camper on a waiting list, and perhaps we’ll even put a new week together!
