HorseSense Summer Horse Camp Sample Schedules

Helpful information about this resource:

These sample camps schedules are actually from our own summer horse camp experiences. Use them for inspiration, and adapt as needed when planning your own camps.

All of these camps are suitable for English or Western riding.

Our camps have always been a two-instructor operation, allowing us to divide campers into two groups, usually with 4-6 students in each group, depending on the Level. While one group had a mounted lesson, the second group had an unmounted lesson or horsey craft time.

Rotating groups in this way helped us make the most of our tightly scheduled programming — and kept our students engaged and learning throughout each day.

You’ll find a variety of different themes and riding disciplines here because we discovered that our students would eagerly attend multiple camps throughout the year if we created those camps with a specific focus.

These are just a few of the specialty camps we offered year after year — we also did camps with other themes (show jumping, dressage, etc.)

Of course, your camps need to fit your unique situation, so just borrow the ideas and scheduling that will work for you.

And whatever your schedule entails, we hope you have fun with it!

We’ve been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood in sweltering/ freezing arenas, capturing lifelong memories of lessons, camps and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One former student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here. We’re also grateful for photos of Western riding donated by LLPro instructors – particularly Bit of Pleasure Horse School and Joyful Hearts Photography!

You’ll find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials graciously donated by our friend Rhonda Hagy. Evan Surrusco contributes additional illustrations and handles most of our photo processing. Contact us for information about their work.
