Our camps are run by Tiana Tapper, a professional riding instructor and award winning horse trainer, as well as a former elementary teacher. You can rest assured knowing your kids are in good hands! Tiana has been a part of Wentz Stables her entire life and is dedicated to making sure campers get their fill of horsing around in the best possible way.
No horse experience is necessary!
We offer an Intro to Horses camp on Mondays for kids who are new to horses or have not ridden with Wentz Stables previously. On Thursdays, we offer a skill based camp for current students of our program looking to further their horsemanship skills and knowledge. Advanced Horsemanship Camp is only for students that actively ride in our lesson program who's skills have been assessed by Tiana.
Some horseback activities we like to do are lunge line lessons, obstacle courses, group rides, trail rides, and much more. Our activities are planned and adapted for each group of children depending on their riding experience. In addition to riding, campers develop valuable horsemanship skills on the ground as they learn how to properly handle and work around horses safety.
Campers must bring a packed lunch, a water bottle, and extra snacks are recommended. They must also dress for the weather and come prepared to ride. For campers new to the horse world that do not have the proper attire, we will provide helmets. Jeans are a good alternative to riding pants and boots are recommended.
When the campers are not riding, they take part in games and learning experiences to further their horse knowledge. This includes topics such as breeds, colors, markings, tack and equipment, grooming, and much more! Our day is filled with horse related games and activities, along with opportunities to get in the saddle.
Camp days run from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Beginner Horse Camp is $120 per student. Advanced Horsemanship Camp for currently enrolled lesson students is $100 per student. Parents must fill out a waiver for all campers and payment is due at the start of camp (cash or check).
