Summer Horse Camps

Y Knot Ranch invites all horse lovers, 8 and up, for our summer horse camp. The camp is filled with fun and excitement. Your child will learn the basics needed to be around a horse and much more, from grooming and saddling up to riding with a proper seat at a walk, trot and canter depending on experience. The camp is from Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm. Each child will be assigned one horse for the week according to the child's experience, size, and behavior. The first two hours consists of grooming, tacking up, and riding the horses. Then we stop for a one hour lunch break. The last hour will be a different activity each day such as: horse trivia, how to properly clean a horse, match the horse with its color, working with a horse at halter, and more. Each camp is limited to 16 students per week. If you sign up before May 1st the price is only $325. Anytime after the 1st the price is $350. A $100 deposit must be collected in order to sign up.
