HORSE DAY CAMPS
Ages 7 - 18. Whether you have your own horse or are thinking about buying a horse our camps are geared to you. From the beginner to the experienced, you will work at your own level, improve on skills you already have and learn new ones.
Harris Stage Lines Horse day camp is an opportunity for your child to experience a real working horse riding, driving & training ranch. Emphasis is placed on safety around horses and the care of livestock & equipment including feeding, watering, cleaning the barns and pens. Our horses are the tools that help teach children confidence and self esteem. The riding & driving of horses gives students hands on training, which improves their skills and teaches them new ones. Trick riding & trick roping are also taught to enhance the child's confidence and coordination. Snacks are provided, but children are to bring their own lunch. Week long horse day camps include a show put on for family, friends and parents by the children. Your children will present the Calvacade of Horses, a stunning exhibition choreographed to music, with the various breeds of horses used at the camp.
