SUMMER RIDING CAMPS
CLIP CLOP AT CAROUSEL STABLES
The 2019 Summer Riding Camp Series
Located just a few minutes West of Calgary, Clip Clop at Carousel Stables is super excited to bring you the 1st Annual Clip Clop Camp Series. We plan to offer an exceptional program that will have our campers coming back year after year!
Clip Clop Camp days are filled with lots of fun and interesting horse-related activities. Clip Clop Campers 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; how to communicate with horses; 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 about theory, anatomy, nutrition, and riding through fun activities and games.
Riding – Riders will ride once per day for approximately 2 hours. Riders will learn how to brush and tack up their horses for the lesson.
For the beginner students and little ones that are not yet able to prepare their horse for riding- this will be part of their lesson time.
Age: 9 to 16
Days: Monday to Friday
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Mini Camps for Mini Clip Cloppers
The first weeks in July and August are dedicated to our younger campers (ages 5 to 8). Mini Clip Cloppers still get to do all of the exciting stuff that our full-day campers do but the activities are designed specifically for their age and skill level.
Our Mini Camps for Mini Clip Cloppers run from Tuesday to Friday, 9am to 12pm and are offered at the Mini price of $275
Age: 5 to 8
Days: Tuesday to Friday
Time: 9 am to 12 pm
Our goal is to fill every Clip Clop Camp week with horse-loving kids but, we may need to modify camp schedules based on enrolment numbers.
