EQUEST FARM SUMMER CAMP WHERE HORSES BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU!!!!!
Has your child always wanted to learn how to ride a horse or been fascinated with horses? Do you dream of a summer camp experience that is truly unique? How about spending a week with one of Mother Nature’s most fascinating creatures? Horses can inspire such wonderful qualities in children such as compassion, love, responsibility, sensitivity to others, pride in accomplishments and a desire to set and reach goals. If these are qualities you seek for your child, then Equest Farms summer camp is for you.
Horse Show Week
This first week of camp introduces campers to the world of showing. Campers will learn about the preparation required to take care of their mounts correctly—a great session for both beginner and advanced riders alike!
Professionals from all over Louisiana will come to demonstrate their equine skills. Campers will not only learn basic horse knowledge, but they will see how much talent is right here in Louisiana!
Western Week I
While lessons are still administered in the classic, English style, the theme of this week places campers directly into the world of rodeo and the old west. Yee-haw!
The word “O-Mok-See” comes from the Blackfoot Indians. Today, we would translate it directly to “games on horseback!” In this week, campers learn the different games that have been played on and around horses for centuries!
Pony Club/Scouts Week
During this week, campers are taught the basic horsemanship skills that are distributed by the US Pony Club & Scouts. This theme takes campers through all the tests and trials of Scout procedure and ensures that campers leave with knowledge of the horse and its required care.
Medieval Times Week
Here campers will explore the medieval time period and learn about the role that horses played in that era. This fun-packed week is filled with lots of games, horse activities, and crafts!
Western Week II
This theme was so popular that we decided to add a second week of Western Camp! If you missed out on the first one, or just want to experience it again, sign up for this session of camp!
We end the summer just right with our Olympics session of camp! This theme celebrates different countries and what they have brought to the equestrian world—complete with opening and closing ceremonies! This session of camp is truly a great way to complete the summer!
