Canopy Oak Trails Summer Horse Camp / Horse Camp in Archer, Florida

Summer Horseback Riding Day Camp (10 miles SW of Gainesvilleb)

Let’s give your horse-crazy child an amazing week long summer day camp at Canopy Oak Trails. We’re limiting to a maximum of 8 campers/week and wearing masks when indoors, if not vaccinated. (Masks not required when outdoors.) We’re assigning saddles, helmets and bridles to each camper for the week.

Beginner to intermediate riding lessons (English, Western, bareback) in the safety of the round pen & smaller arena. Weeks for more advanced riders can be arranged, if sufficient interest.

Grooming, groundwork, mounting/dismounting, good body position & turning with legs, hips & reins, halt & back up

Close supervision in an enclosed area before riding in larger areas

Shady, wooded trail for practicing manuvers & obstacle challenges

Campers average 3-4 hours a day with their horse, riding twice each day.

High councellor to camper ratio (typically no less than 1 volunteer per 2 campers)

Inroduction to trail riding, jumping, barrel racing, pole bending, relays & equestrian games

An opportunity to learn about what it takes to own a horse

Unmounted learning: Horse safety, breeds & colors, anatomy, hoof care, nutrition, tack (saddles & other equipment)

On Friday, family is invited to attend the "horse show." Campers will present a mounted relay, a horse obstacle course & other demonstrations of the skills that they've learned.

We'll provide horses, helmets, tack, craft supplies, water & snacks. You'll provide bag lunches & your child, eager to learn everything about horses. Let us help make this summer the best ever.
