This summer, we will be hosting four weeks of our own horse camp. These camps run Monday thru Friday.
Summer Camp Dates: 2019
Cost: $400.00 Friends and family discount available.
Extended day options available as well.
Weeks in between are hosted through the Ecke YMCA and can be booked through them.
Students will have their own horse for the week. They will advance their riding skills from whatever point they start at, very beginner through competitive show riders. We have several instructors that will be teaching groups at different levels.
The focus of the week will be learning to understand how your horse thinks and using that understanding to get your horse to work with you in a safe, happy environment. Safety is stressed at all times along with proper horsemanship skills. We will learn about health care, physical fitness of the horse, proper nutrition, transportation, anatomy and physiology, and of course grooming and tack care. Things like proper dental care and hoof care are also covered by leading professionals.
This is a very hands-on camp and we encourage all students to try their hand at everything from driving a horse hooked to a cart, giving shots, worming, and of course cleaning stalls! At the end of each day we will cool down with a swim in the pool.
Camp is $400 A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot.
We also host 5 weeks of YMCA summer camp for the Magdalena Ecke YMCA. as well as Peninsula YMCA Ocean Beach, and the La Jolla YMCA Contact the Y for registration for those weeks.
