It appears camps are full for 2018! We're still waiting for a few final deposits, so it's possible some spots will come open, so stay tuned. We are starting a waiting list, so please email us to be added!

Meadowlark Horse Camp is an educational camp for horse-crazy kids specifically designed to give them as much hands-on time with the horses as possible. We offer camps for English riders of all levels, whether you're looking for a great place to send the kids for an introduction to horses or to springboard your young equestrian's riding up to the next level. We also have a low student to teacher ratio, with only six campers per instructor, and either a two-to-one or one-on-one camper to counselor ratio, depending on experience levels. This allows your camper to get the best experience out of their week spent with us.

Camps are $375 a week, and run from 9AM-2PM, Monday through Friday.

We will be introducing a new instructor this year and can't wait for you to meet her! Keep an eye on our Meadowlark Horse Camp Facebook page for more details!

campersCamps for Young Riders - Our young riders camps are a great hands-on experience where your child can spend quality time learning to horseback ride and handle horses, creating awesome crafts, building leadership skills and making great new friends! Young Rider camps are $375 for the week, and include at least an hour of time in the saddle each day, as well as several hours working with the horses on the ground. We aim to have one group of beginners and one group of experienced riders each week of camp. Our campers get the best hands-on experience, hands down!

A Day in the Life at Meadowlark Horse Camp:

  • Campers are dropped off at 9AM (with bag lunch and water, long pants and a sturdy boot of some sort) and the first part of our Monday is spent participating in games to determine riding ability and level of experience. The campers are then assigned to their horses for the week. While campers may have a partner who shares their same horse, their horse is definitely "theirs" for the week. 

  • Horses are brought out of their stalls and fields by our experienced counselors and campers learn to groom, saddle, bridle and lead their horses safely. Meadowlark is happy to provide ASTM helmets for our campers, and all campers must wear boots of some sort (no tennis shoes!) 

  • Campers spend at least an hour in the saddle working on building their skills as riders. We play games, do obstacle courses or work on more formal exercises to develop rider skills, depending on the level of the riders in each group.

  • When not in a riding lesson, campers are in ground lessons which include: horse first aid and nutrition, horse behavior and body language, nature walks, stall mucking races, horse drawing lessons and more!

  • After our lessons for the day, campers eat a bag lunch and work on a camp craft including things like tie-dye, workbooks, painting horse shoes and more! 

  • If we have any time at the end of the day we play camp games until parents come for pick-up at 2PM.
