Good Horsemanship is paramount at Meadowbrook Stables. With a variety of summer programs to choose from, children will find something to meet their needs and prosper. Meadowbrook's summer horsemanship programs allow children to experience firsthand the benefits of riding and caring for animals.
At Meadowbrook Stables, our educational programs provide information, instruction, and practice opportunities for students to learn safe horse handling, care and maintenance, as well as riding skills and the rules of a variety of disciplines of equestrian sports and competitions. We offer week-long camps for children ages 6-14, as well as an Equitation clinic for ages 13 to 16.
Full Day Camp - Ages for full-day camp range from 9-14 years old. Camp hours are from 8:30am - 4:00pm. In each session small groups are assembled according to ability level supplied by applicant and through a Meadowbrook evaluation conducted on the first day of camp. Campers learn about horse care and horseback riding through lectures, activities, games, demonstrations and riding lessons. At the end of each session, we invite you to watch the campers ride and win ribbons in their camp schooling horse show and/or participate in a game day.
Show Camp is a program designed to introduce riders to the responsibilities and fun of attending and participating in a horse show. Each week the riders focus on preparing themselves and their horses for a show. Additionally, riders learn about the various aspects of running a horse show as well as competing. At the end of each session, riders are encourages to participate in a local horse show under the supervision of Meadowbrook Staff (please note that costs for the horse show would be in addition to the Show Camp fee).
