Looking for a summer camp for your son, daughter, or grandchild? Spend a week of your summer vacation at Equitate Summer Riding Camp!
Our week-long camp is Monday, June 11th – Friday, June 15th, 2018 9am – 3pm at our beautiful farm, which is just minutes from downtown Oconomowoc.
Equitate welcome children ages 7 to 17 to our camps. We offer days of fun, riding, hands-on activities with horses, fellow campers, and our knowledgeable staff.
In addition to daily riding lessons, beginner riders will learn and practice grooming, tacking, and every day horse care. We also focus all of what we do on fostering strong team-building and leadership skills. Intermediate/advanced riders will build upon their previous knowledge throughout camp and will be assigned certain horses to help care for.
There’s nothing better than being at the barn for a week in the country spending time with horses and the outdoors! Summer means children can enjoy our outdoor riding arena and fun summer activities such as painting our horses and giving them baths afterwards, obstacle courses, impromptu water balloon fights to cool down, equestrian crafts, and much more! And to top it all off, riders will participate in a small horse show at Equitate on the last day of camp. Families and friends are encouraged to attend.
Hear what our families have to say about our riding camps:
“I loved camp was because I felt so comfortable with everyone there, even the people I'd hadn't met before. Every person there, no matter the age, was so kind and fun to be around. My favorite part was getting to know everyone there a little better through something we all love to do and supporting each other to have fun. The most fun thing we did was playing games and just talking with each other throughout the day in addition to riding together. The camp was such an amazing experience because it wasn't just about riding horses, it was about meeting new friends, having fun, and working to achieve everyone's goals for the time they were there for.” -Teenaged Camper
“My 8-year-old daughter attended the winter camp. She loved
it! She was very nervous and is brand new to riding but the staff at Equitate helped her overcome her fears! The camp was incredibly well organized and well run.” - Mom of a Camper
“My daughter is standing in the shower BAWLING because she had so much fun at camp, she already misses the kids and the horses and the and all of you! I guess you did a darn good job of showing them a good time! You may just have to plan a week-long winter camp because I don’t think she can wait until next summer!” - Mom of a Camper
