M & M Equine Training provides children ages 6 to 15 with an opportunity to learn about horses and horsemanship in a fun and exciting summer camp program. Our weekly day camps are designed to benefit both the beginner and as well as students with prior knowledge and experience of horses. We believe that participating in our summer horse camp is a great way to build your child's self-confidence and help them develop good decision making skills. Attending horse camp promotes independence while learning responsibility and cooperation.
Students will learn about every aspect of the horse from grooming and tacking up to nutrition and basic care. Each week we will bring in a professional such as a veterinarian or farrier to discuss new topics about the horse. Students will have the opportunity to ask this professional questions and see first hand how to properly care for a horse.
Students will also learn the parts of the horse, common illness and diseases, breeds, proper care of tack and equipment, different riding disciplines and SO MUCH MORE! Daily riding sessions are catered to the individual needs of each student and their ability and level of experience. We focus on teaching each rider to have a balanced seat and a soft hand. Our ponies and horses are amazing teachers and will take care of each rider as they learn. How fast the individual advances all depends on that individual. The only requirement we have is a positive attitude and a willingness to learn!!
We have designed daily arts and craft activities that will continue teaching students about their equine friends in a fun and creative way. We also have several games and team building activities planned to encourage the camaraderie among campers. Students will take away memories that will last them a lifetime!
