For people who like horses, nothing can create memories of a lifetime like attending a quality Summer Horse Camp. Summers spent at riding camps can create friendships and experiences that children or adults will cherish forever.  You want your child to have a fun and exciting summer camp experience that you can feel comfortable about.  Stepping Stone Ranch can please both parents and children with a fun-filled daily itinerary with a dedication to safety. We will show you or your child the unique and beautiful relationship between horse and rider. We strive to give students the confidence and self-esteem that comes from riding and handling horses with thoughtfulness and respect.

 


Days are organized to give students a well-rounded equine education that includes safety measures, hands-on horse care, English riding everyday, stable activities, and lots of information about horses and riding in general
.  There will also be craft activities and nature walks. 

 

We are experienced in teaching students of all ages the joy of learning in a safe environment that emphasizes cooperation and respect. Our head riding instructor is an accomplished rider and teacher, and has years of experience in the equine field.  Experienced, caring staff, and a fun, upbeat atmosphere teaching respect for the animals and responsibility coupled with our comprehensive learning program give you, your child and your horse an equestrian experience of a lifetime.
