Horse Camp - Camp Backcountry

Our week-long horse camps provide an opportunity for kids to learn about horses from the ground up. Campers will find themselves immersed in learning about the equine species through groundwork, animal science, hands-on activities, games, group riding lessons, and a trail ride!

Horse Camp is not a licensed child care facility and operates under CDEC’s single-skill exemption. Our curriculum is designed to focus on specific weekly single-skills related to horses and equine activities.
