In the WCM tradition of education and excellence, we have partnered with the Girl and Boy Scouts to facilitate the scouts earning their Horsemanship requirements. We schedule these camp group lessons sessions for Saturday afternoons or Sundays.
The cost is only $30 per student and we spend a packed 2 hour visit with the following subjects. The purpose of which is to expose the scouts to a broad range of detailed topics about horsemanship, safety, animal care and farm management. The specific material covered is below, and completion of which grants each scout their credit towards his/her specific horsemanship program.
As a result of great community encouragement, WCM has broadened our WCM Horse Camp experience to allow participants in a personal and customized half day camp safely and in horse style. This service is available throughout the year on a limited number of days. We have to schedule around our existing show, lesson, and holiday schedule. Children from 6 years on up may ride. Younger children may attend and participate in alternate horse activities. The program is 3 hours long and includes our essential WCM educational horse activities such as grooming, tacking up, riding, and untacking. We may also offer carriage rides, based on the group size, weather conditions, and schedule for that particular day. While one group is riding, there are various horse-themed games and arts & crafts to keep everyone busy. The riding portion will be english (unless otherwise specified), and each rider will have an assigned instructor to work with privately with each camper. The rides are in a mini-lesson format where the riders work on skills to steer, post, and maintain control in the saddle. The more advanced a rider is, the more he/she will be allowed to do, and our instructors will assess each student accordingly. Our excellent lesson horses help give these kids learn the proper way to ride, drive, stay safe, and have fun! These horses are kind, friendly and love attention.
Each WCM Summer and Winter Horse Camp and Lesson experiences has its own unique experiences and focuses on safety and fun around horses. We do our very best to ensure that everyone has a wonderful and memorable experience to last a lifetime.
Prices are based on number of children for the 3 hour experience:
1-10 kids $400
