EQUESTRIAN SUMMER CAMP
Wondering what your child can do over the summer? Looking for something different that combines the great outdoors with education and fun? Send your child to Seaton Hackney Stables for one of our summer camp programs!
We accept children 5yr to 17yr and form groups according to age and level of experience, if any.
See our forms page for registration forms for all types of riders (PEP, Standard, Intermediate, Advanced).
If your child is between 5yr and 7yr old, the PEP Form is what you need.
For riders with little or no experience or who only ride occasionally, Standard Form. These two Camps also have their own built in proficiency levels.
More Camp Information
Before registering, feel free to give us a call (973-644-3355) and we will happily help you determine the proper level. We also strongly recommend a couple of short private lessons to ensure that the child will happily participate in Camp and to establish her/his riding level.
Campers learn basic safety, grooming, tacking and barn management skills. They ride 2-3 times daily, either in lessons, on trail rides, lungeing session and Equisthenics.
In addition, campers receive daily Badges in many different topics including harness driving, equine breeds, colors and markings, equine health and First Aid, braiding and Show grooming, careers in the industry (demonstrations by vet and farrier) and other exciting horsemanship matters.
Our camp counselors hail from around the world and bring a fun and exciting international flair to the program, introducing a wide range of exciting activities related to their own culture.
Weekly camps run all summer until Labor Day. Half-day and full-day sessions for riders of every ability (ages 5 to 17) are available. Session dates, rates, and other information are included. With space limited and several weeks already filled, reserve your place now by calling or visiting our office. Better yet, fill out a registration form and fax or mail it to us today.
Also, you can access, print out and fax/mail/email the Health Information and Forms.
Seaton Hackney is limited by the number of horses, staff requirements and other activities taking place while Camp is in session. As a result, we will not accept more than 49 participants in any given session. Please make sure to register early and avoid disappointment.
Each year, Seaton Hackney offers CIT’s positions to its more advanced –and motivated- riders. Ask if you can be a CIT this year and spend a wonderful time while earning some valuable Barn Bucks!
