Camp Augusta is head over hooves for our equestrian program!
Our summer camp equestrian program focuses on the foundations of riding, with a strong emphasis on building a positive relationship between horse and rider. We encourage soft hands and attention to the horse’s energy. Teaching kids how to love horses and giving horseback riding instruction lessons is something we love.
With up to five activity periods a day, campers experience a wide range of horse activities. In addition to building riding skills and exploring the trails of Camp Augusta, we also offer activities to foster playful connections and build horsemanship knowledge. From horse painting to jousting, there is something for everyone. Check out all of our activities here!
Each member of our ten-horse herd was hand-picked with love by our equestrian team. Our goal is to make sure campers of all skill levels can participate in our program. The Equestrian Directors are experts at matching the right horse to the right activity and the right camper.
The Camp Augusta herd are some pampered ponies! Our horses are given thorough care, facilitation, and enrichment – plus the occasional bubble bath courtesy of our campers. Our equestrian team is well-versed in each horse’s temperament, energy, and personality, and knows when a particular horse needs a break or is ready for more play!
