Summer Camp at Clip Clop

We are excited to provide your child a fun and educational experience that will foster their love for horses and teach them valuable horsemanship and leadership skills.

We offer Half and Full day camps, M-F, in July & August, tailored to the age and experience of each group of campers. You will be guided to the full details on the Camps Option & Registration page.

Great Hands & Hooves

Rest assured that your child is in great hands and hooves with our excellent team of human and horse teachers, who are well trained, experienced, and dedicated to providing a safe and enriching experience for your child.

Your Child is Safe

Ensuring your child's safety is our top priority, and we have taken rigorous measures to achieve this across all areas - physical, emotional, and social. Our staff is carefully selected, trained, and supervised to follow our safety protocols and standard operating practices.

Riding & Horse Handling

Our Riding & Horse Handling activities teach riders how to ride, lead, brush, and tack up horses. We use Buddy Horses to ensure safety and build confidence before transitioning to live horses. This helps riders learn grooming, tacking, and mounting/dismounting skills and develop leadership skills like decision-making, communication, and responsibility.

Horse Play

Horse Play and Riding Horse time at camp is divided into two parts: Horse Play, where riders learn about horses through fun games and activities, and Riding & Horse Handling, which teaches riding skills and leadership.

Enjoy some horse play this summer!

Leadership

At Clip Clop, we believe that the leadership skills required to form a partnership with horses are essential, and we teach them in every aspect of our program. Our goal is to help our riders become successful and responsible horse handlers while developing valuable life skills.By the end of our camp, riders have formed a deep bond with horses and learned valuable skills that can be applied in many areas of their lives.

Learning Assistants

In addition to the Camp Leader, Learning Assistants are present to help all Clip Cloppers. We have a high ratio of leaders to riders.

Rider's Choice - the decision is in their hands.

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 99.95% success rate of riders riding, at their level, confidently, by the end of camp.

We plan for each rider to have their own horse.
