Grades 1-9 Horse Camp Registration

Single-day camps for children entering grades 1-4 in fall of 2019. Two-day camps for children entering grades 5-9 in the fall of 2019.

Meet the Zoo’s horses! Build horsemanship skills while learning the basics of horse safety and care. Instruction includes leading, mounting, dismounting, and
proper horse care such as feeding, grooming, and saddling. Camp experience includes a staff-led horse ride. Full-day camps include additional barn activities
and interaction with horses.

Note: Due to the smaller size of our horses, campers must be under 200 pounds.

NEW! Intermediate Horse Camp
Have you already taken a horse camp at the Zoo? Are you interested in learning more? This camp may be perfect for you! These camps are designed to include some independent riding and more time on horses.

Note: Long pants (ideally jeans) and closed-toe boots or athletic shoes are required. Low-heeled shoes or boots are recommended. Helmets will be provided. Students without proper attire will not be allowed to participate and no refunds or transfers will be offered.

Be sure to check out our week-long camps for grades 1-9!
