2016 Camp Dates!!!



Summer, Vacation Week, and Adult Programs!

happycampersCMS is different from other camp programs because we are ALL HORSES, ALL DAY! We offer a hands-on, interactive approach to learning horsemanship that keeps kids active and engaged. Beginners are welcome! Session groups are split by ability level, and are taught by experienced, licensed instructors. All sessions include a daily mounted riding lesson. Camps run all summer and during school vacation weeks in February and April.

Specialty weeks provide students variety throughout the summer, and allow riders to choose the focus of their weeks at the barn. Our Saddle Up program is available for children new to riding or who want a broad-based experience at camp. Riders who have been to camp before, or who have some riding experience, can expand their knowledge in their personal areas of interest.  Experienced and competitive riders will appreciate our more advanced Theme Camp, Jumping and IEA sessions. All camps are run with an emphasis on safety and building confidence on and around the horses.

Introducing new for this year: Theme Camp!  Each year there will be a different theme for this camp designed for our advanced riders.  This year's theme will be horse training/schooling!  It will be an intensive camp focused on learning how to help your horse be it's best both on the ground and under saddle!
