summer camps

For the Summer of 2021, we are offering 2 different styles of camp:

- Competition Camp

- Ride to Read Literacy Summer Camp

Competition Camp

Our Competition Camp is designed for Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4 riders who wish to practice their show skills in group classes and prepare their horses to compete in a small horse show at the end of the week on Saturday, July 24th. Tuesday through Friday of this week, riders will participate in classes and show preparation activities from 9am to 12pm. ALL riders that sign up for Competition Camp must be capable of self-care or be accompanied by an attendant who will assist with personal needs each day.

Ride To Read Camp

Each student will participate in unmounted horsemanship activities as well as mounted riding lessons. The half-day program includes hands-on activities on the ground which will be reinforced in the saddle as the students lean riding skills. Multisensory input provided by the horse promotes enthusiasm towards reading skills, self-confidence, increased focus, and confidence among peers.

  • Students are encouraged to bring their own lunch and enjoy a picnic on the grounds after camp.

  • Groups must provide transportation and chaperones.

  • Equest will provide certified instructors, horses, tack, helmet rentals, and program volunteers for additional support.

Targeted literacy skills may include:

  • Identifying nouns, verbs, and adjectives

  • Rhyming

  • Increasing vocabulary

  • Capitalization

  • Initial/Final sounds

*This program is targeted for 1st and 2nd grade readers*
