HORSE SLUMBER PARTY

A weekend full of horses

Is there a girl in your life who loves horses?  Well then this retreat is for her! Our experienced horse staff will guide these campers through an overnight stay full of fun and horses. 

 

Campers arrive Friday evening to meet the horses, cook dinner and s’mores over a campfire, and make horse crafts! Saturday is all horses, all the time…well, except for eating. We will play games on horseback, go for long rides, do some grooming and just enjoy being outdoors with horses. 

** Note - This event is for girls who have ridden a horse at least once by themselves before.
