Clip Clop 1/2-Day Riding Camps are filled with fun and interesting horse-related activities. Clip Clop Riders are introduced to all things horses through crafts, interactive games and, of course, riding lessons!


Our excellent Camp Leaders teach campers about safety around horses and the stables, bonding with horse, the parts of the horse, grooming, tacking and basic horsemanship in both English and Western styles of riding (no previous experience required).

Horse time at camp will be divided into two parts:

Horse Play – Riders learn horsemanship skills through theory and hands-on;  anatomy, nutrition, feeding, caring for horses, by engaging in fun activities and games.

Riding – Our goal is that riders learn learn how to ride, lead, brush and tack up horses, and we teach this on Buddy Horses (practice model horses) prior to moving onto live horses in order to ensure safety, confidence, and knowledge. The riders rave about this feature and report that they are super glad they learned the many skills of grooming, tacking, mounting/dismounting, and haltering before they fu(n)mbled through it on live horses.

Depending on the confidence, experience level, and desire to ride of the individual rider, riders are supported in making their own decision to: ride a horse, share a horse (many kids love this), lead a horse or watch others before riding on their own. We have a 100% success rate of riders riding, at their level, confidently, by the end of camp!

Learning Assistants

In addition to the Camp Leader, Learning Assistants are present to help all Clip Cloppers.

At Clip Clop, we place an equal value on horseback riding skills and horse husbandry skills. Our riders learn about ALL of the skills of building a solid foundation of horsemanship. Please expect and be excited for your child to learn the skills to become a well-rounded horse person, both off and on the horse! Children LOVE to learn about horses! 

Each Half Day Camp week highlights a popular horse breed and Clip Cloppers will learn about the unique features of each one!*

*These are simply a fun camp week title, and not the type of horses that will be ridden.
