Learn to Ride & Care for Horses

Summer camps are an interactive way for kids to be able to learn new passions and hobbies. At North Country Stables they will not only have the experience of working with horses but they will also learn a new hobby with new friends in a fun, safe environment.


Camps are a great place for children of all ages to interact with each other in a low-key, no-bullying setting. In addition to learning how to ride and handle horses, we vary each day with games and many activities.


Camp participants will usually ride twice a day, having trail rides, water fights and learning how to properly take care of horses. If your child has been begging you for riding lessons, the camp is a great introduction to horses and a good way to tell if your child really wants to commit to the sport of riding for the long term.


Riding lessons are conducted in groups of no more than 6 riders and each lesson will go for about an hour and a half.


Summer Camp Necessities:

  • Shoes need to be heeled boots (hiking boots acceptable). No running shoes allowed and heels need to only be 1 ½” high.
  • Jeans, riding pants or yoga pants are acceptable.
  • Riding helmet (helmets can be provided by stables)
  • Gloves are optional but encouraged to keep riders from getting sores on their hands.
  • No baggy clothes (sweat pants, large hoodies, etc.)
  • Hair must be pulled out of the face and held back in ponytails or braids.
  • A lunch each day
  • Plenty of water
  • Bug spray
  • Sunscreen
