Spring Break horseback riding camp at Dreamcatcher Meadows with Kirsten Mitchell!
The goal of the week is that campers will gain a general and complete horse knowledge through fun hands on games and experiences learning outcomes are as follows:
Learn about the evolution of horses, breeds and the anatomy of the horse. Campers will learn the nature of the horse, and learn to communicate to horses using body language and by watching theirs! Campers will learn about what it takes to care for these animals including basic first aid, daily foot care, bathing and nutrition.
The campers will be involved in barn practical experiences that teach them things such as how to measure the height and weight of a horse. As well as how to fit a saddle and all the other equipment that is needed to ride and of course how to confidently tack up and untack their horse
Riding groups will be determined by age and previous equine experience.
If campers are not comfortable riding or if supervisors don’t think it is safe to do so the campers will work on the ground until they are comfortable and safe! Riding activities include (dependent on age, and experience level)

Basic communication and understanding of the horse’s body language and signs
