Horse Camp

Determining your child's camp level

It is important that students be signed up for the camp best suited to their riding level. For most riders who participate in summer camps as their only riding experience, this can often mean signing up for many summers as a level one rider. That is completely OK and the safest option! 

We want our campers to have the safest and most enjoyable week possible. During registration you will be asked what type of riding experience your child has, this will help us to arrange students into groups and complete preliminary horse assignments. Our instructors work with all campers to help them gain experience and grow, riders coming in with previous experience will continue to be challenged and taught new skills even as returning level one riders.  

If you have questions about what level your child should be please do not hesitate to contact our office. 

We invite you to bring your children to the Wildwind Equestrian Center to make memories, meet new friends and be exposed to a healthy sport that develops physical fitness, builds confidence and a respect and love for animals.

Wildwind Equestrian Center's summer horse camp is more than a way to fill a summer day; it's a chance for a horse-crazy student to spend an entire week with horses. Why do kids come to horse camp? To ride, and we provide more riding time than anyone else. We have 27 
well-trained horses and ponies to meet all our rider’s needs.   

Along with daily riding lessons, students learn horsemanship, feeding, horse care, grooming, saddling, medical care and much more!  During the week the students will learn to walk, trot and steer their horses.  Students will learn to ride through fun games, activities and obstacle courses.   Weather is never a problem since we have both indoor & outdoor arenas. Regular Camp is offered weekly throughout the summer
. The camp week experience is rounded out with a Horse Show and Potluck Lunch on Friday for family and friends. 

Come to Horse Camp at Wildwind Equestrian Center “Where Everyone Belongs”.


Due to the current uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus, we will be accepting camp registration without payment. Registration can be made online or over the phone. We will call individuals back in the order of registration to obtain payment. 


The early bird price will be honored for all registration received before May 1st. All registrations received on or after May 1st will be at full price. 

Horse Camp Level 1 (Ages 7-16)

This camp is offered for beginner riders. Students who have never ridden before should sign up for a level one class. Riders that cannot do an extended posting trot under control should also choose this class. Level 1 riders will be split into groups based on experience.

Please do not put the student in a class that they are not prepared for. Call and ask if you have any questions. If you put your student in a skill level too high, and the camp is full, they will not get the full benefit of their riding experience. We do not give refunds.
