Summer Day Camp

Still Waters Equestrian Academy is looking forward to our 2021 Summer Camps. Schedule will be available and registrations will be live beginning in the first week of February 2021.  Please contact us if we can provide any information before that time!  

Camps are targeted towards youth ages 6 – 12 with a half day camp for younger riders and a full day camp for riders 8 and older. We also offer a special Mother-Daughter camp experience.

Day camps teach horse care, anatomy, design and horse behavior while emphasizing the character building skills that horsemanship develops.

All camp sessions must be secured by a $100 non-refundable deposit ($50 Pony Pals) with reservation form. Although each session of summer camp is customized for the group attending, all sessions include:

Safety - On the ground and on the horse.

Grooming - Hands on - keeping horses clean and healthy. 

Tacking - Learning how to identify, use, and care for equipment.

Riding - All styles of riding introduced throughout the week-long experience for beginner through advanced riders.

Feeding - Learning about the nutritional needs and taking part in feeding the horses.

Games - On and off the horse.

Crafts - Horse inspired crafts to create and take home.

Maintenance - An overview of what is involved with horse ownership.
