"Painted Key" Summer Horse Camp
Gait Keeper Farm partnered with Painted Moon Farm.
Campers will spend their day riding and learning about horses and ponies. Each camper will ride up to twice a day. Other activities include learning about daily care, the anatomy of the horse, breeds, colors, demonstrations from professionals, lunch, crafts, river stomping and much more. Our camp goal is to educate while having fun with our horses and friends. Your child will enjoy their day filled with pony fun!
Hosted at Gait Keeper Farm. GKF is a boutique full service barn geared towards hunters and jumpers from new beginners to Grand Prix show jumping. GKF's goal is to develop confident, quality horses and confident correct riders.
JUNE 1ST - 4TH

Camp options are from true beginners to the most advanced.
We have instructors and counselors that can meet your child at his or her level and make their experience here at camp awesome. There is a low instructor to counselor to camper ratio. Supervision and safety is our main concern.
