Horses & Riding:
We want your child to have a fun camp experience that you can feel comfortable about as well. With a fun-filled daily itinerary and a dedication to safety, our camp counselors are experienced in teaching children the joy of learning in a safe environment that emphasizes cooperation and respect of each other and the animals alike.

Daily riding is a favorite part of each camper’s experience. Children receive individual attention aimed at their personal ability level, and participate in group rides where they learn by watching and helping others. Ratio is 1:5 per instructor. Non staff are a huge assistance in direct individual attention.  Additionally campers will have the privilege  to groom and saddle the horse to allow for more bonding time with their equine friend with the help of staff. Horse theory is taught daily, with topics such as what horses eat, how to tell if a horse is sick, and how to look after your own horse. The staff at Conestogo River Horseback Adventures will show your child the unique and beautiful relationship between horse and rider. We strive to give children the confidence and self-esteem that comes from riding and handling horses and ponies alike with thoughtfulness and respect.

Crafts are a much loved part of every day, and range from friendship bracelets to share with new camp friends, stamps, fun foam, leather crafting key chains etc., the sky is the limit! Supplies are included in the camp fee.

Games during the day feature both on and off horse games to keep children interested and entertained. Children participate in games such as Red Light, Green Light, poles and obstacle courses that get more challenging as the week goes on.

Any person under the age of 18 is not permitted on a horse without proper certified headgear! Helmets are rented by Conestogo River Horseback Adventures at $3 per day. Children must supply their own footwear with a 1/2 to 1 inch heel like a hiking boot, winter boot, rubber boot or your local equestrian tack shop will have riding boots and helmets & long paints for riding.
