Horse Camp: Trinity Farm

You asked for it... we're bringing back CAMP!

Does your child want to learn more about horses? We've designed several camps that are perfect for "I've never met a horse in real life" to "this ain't my first rodeo"-experienced riders. Each week of camp includes a different theme to keep everyone learning and trying new things.

Horse Camp at Trinity Farm combines excellent horses and ponies, certified instructors, a huge farm and tons of fun to create memories that will last a lifetime.

We are handling horses, grooming horses, leading, lunging, braiding, bathing and even PAITING them! But riding is optional and only offered on Fridays for most camp weeks, except the "Horse CRAZY" camp. (Read about each camp week's description below.)

Fridays are extra fun!

Parents and friends are welcome to join us for a Showcase and tour of the farm on Fridays! They can even watch horseback riding lessons as each camper will have the option to ride!

Want your camper to ride on Friday? Great! We need a physician's signature clearing them for riding before we can saddle up. This form will be included in your general paperwork.
