Abernathy Farm

2018 Camps


Join us for lots of learning and fun during our camp dates! Campers will always be under the supervision of an equine professional. They will also have camp helpers to help individually. Campers will ride at least 2 hours everyday. They will learn proper form, safety, ring etiquette, navigating obstacles, and even riding through water. Riding time alone is a significant value! They will also learn how to care for their mount and tack (bathing, feeding, cleaning, etc.) We will also have educational games and crafts, relating to horses and their care.
