Summer Horsemanship Camps
Every horse lover starts riding somewhere- let it be Clip Clop.
When it comes to learning about and loving horses, most horse-loving kids and their parents don’t know where to go or how to get started.
So, we created a safe, fun, and meaningful horsemanship program that teaches kids how to ride, bond with and care for horses in a professional environment.
Join our Year-Round Horsemanship Lessons and Summer Camps.
Ages 5 - 18

Horsemanship Camps are perfect for those who dream to learn how to care for and ride horses!
These camps are filled with important fundamental horsemanship information & safety skills, required to know by the rider, to confidently prepare and ride horses. It's more than riding!
At Clip Clop, we place an equal value on horseback riding skills and horse husbandry skills (the care of horses).
Our riders learn the the complete skill sets contained in the foundation of horsemanship.
Please expect your child to learn "off-horse skills" such as grooming, feeding, cleaning, leadership, communication, and many more skills to become a safe, confident and knowledgeable youth horse person!
Children LOVE to learn about horses!

Summer Camps Questions
Because we know you're gonna ask - we want you to have the answers easily and right now:
There is more information on the dedicated pages, but these are the ones we get asked during registration.
We supply helmets (you may also bring your own ASTM approved helmet).
You supply the boots with a one-inch heel. The info page gives the details.
Siblings, cousins, and friends can be grouped together regardless of age and experience (there is so much to learn).
Early drop-off or late pick-up? Yes! Let us know - we can help.
We do not provide bussing as the stables is within the Calgary city limits (Bearspaw).
We receive many requests to accommodate children who require an extra touch.
Please note that we are unable to accept children whose conditions leave them prone to uncontrolled and unpredictable outbursts of anger, frustration, fear, violence, etc. whereby it puts them, horses, and others in a dangerous situation.
And, we are unable to accept children whereby their conditions leave them unable to hear, see, cognitively process instructions, communicate clearly, and control their body movements that would jeopardize their safety and that of others.
The metrics our company (and insurance company) uses to determine appropriateness for participation is: Is the child integrated into a standard classroom setting without the assistance of an aide?
We encourage you to contact our office and we’d be happy to learn about your child and decide together the appropriateness of our program!
We also have colleagues in the industry who run fantastic licensed, therapeutic riding programs, and we can guide you to them.
Give us a call! We can't wait to learn about your child! 587-894-2567
