CK Equestrian runs an extensive summer camp program for horse lovers of any ability!

Junior Horse: Ages 6-8   Combo Horse: Ages 9-14

Half day at the barn, half day participating in traditional camp programs. Designed for campers who are interested in an introduction to horsemanship but also enjoy the many other traditional camp programs Camp Ketcha has to offer.  During this week campers will participate in hands-on activities as they learn about routine horse care and stable management skills, safety practices and general horse knowledge, grooming and tacking-up as well as a 30 minute private riding lesson every day.

Full Day Horsemanship: Ages 9-14

This overall program exposes campers to horses and English style horseback riding. Campers will participate in hands-on activities as they learn about routine horse care and stable management skills, safety practices and general horse knowledge, grooming and tacking-up. In addition to English riding lessons, campers will also participate in a trail ride or class focusing on mounted riding games.

Advanced Horsemanship: Ages 9-14

This program allows our experienced riders to take their riding to the next level.  Riding skills will focus on equitation, dressage and jumping.  Un-mounted lessons will consist of grooming, preparing for a horse show, basic horse knowledge, clipping and braiding, horse health issues, conformation and lameness, different types of tack and equipment and how to care for them.  This camp is designed for  riders who are able to catch, groom and tack-up a horse independently and are currently riding at a level in which they are able to confidently canter off the lunge line.  Campers will also have the opportunity to participate in an overnight at the barn on Thursday. Includes swimming each day (weather dependent).
