Faith Hill Farm Summer Camp

During school summer vacations, Faith Hill Farm offers a weekly horse camp for riders aged 6 through 16 years old, and beginner to advanced riders are all welcome! Campers will enjoy a fun day filled with riding, development of horsemanship skills, horse-themed games, and equine arts and crafts. Groups and organizations can be accommodated. 

Safety is a top priority at Faith Hill Farm and all of our school horses are sane and friendly. Faith Hill Farm has been teaching the basics of riding to children for years and we truly love sharing our passion for horses with the younger generation. We insist on safety around all our horses and we teach best practices to all our riders. A knowledgeable counselor is assigned to every 5 campers, assuring proper supervision at all times. 

All campers must wear long, tight-fitted pants, hard soled, heeled shoes (no sneakers!), and a well-fitted hunt hat. ASTM approved helmets can be provided. Campers should also bring sunscreen, a water bottle, lunch, and a change of clothes for time spent not riding. Don't forget a sliced apple for your favorite pony!

A Day in the Life of a Camper...

As campers arrive in the morning, counselors go over typical horse safety rules with campers in the barn.  Campers then proceed to the picnic tables and have morning greeting where attendance is taken to ensure that everyone has arrived. Counselors then divide the campers up into groups

for riding.  Before riding, many interactive discussions happen around the farm so that all the campers get to learn about each individual horse. These discussions usually include facts such as breed, color, gender, traits and even food preferences. This is followed by riding lessons for campers – the lessons last about an hour for each camper.  Occasionally campers may participate in a trail ride. After campers complete their riding they learn about horse care.  Horse care topics include grooming, feeding and learning about the different body parts.  Campers often have the unique

opportunity to meet and observe industry professionals such as: the farrier, the vet, or the dentist. In the afternoon, there is a scheduled time for lunch.  After lunch campers test their creative skills with fun horse-related craft.  Some days, we have a sweet surprise with a visit from the DEL’s Lemonade Truck!! Each week concludes with a special Friday horse show. We welcome

family and friends to come watch their riders show off the new riding techniques they have learned throughout the week. At the end of each show, campers give a presentation on a selected horse related topic they have researched that week.
