SUMMER CAMPS

2022

 

STARTER HORSE CAMPS: 9AM-3PM

May 30th-31st  | June 27th-28th | July 18th-19th | August 1st - 2nd

Icon Starter Horse Camps are a great opportunity to get your little one on a pony and see if that  is something of interest to them! During a camp day, your child will learn how to safely handle  and interact with horses. With keeping in mind littles attention spans, riders will begin by  building confidence on the ground with a horse by being taught general handing and grooming  skills. Littles will progress when ready to a mounted ride where the focus will be on balance,  coordination and overall comfortability. Small groups will be fitted by maturity and  understanding to ensure maximum safety. Outside of riding and horse care, there will also be  crafts, activities and games to further education and love for horses, as well as have a fun  memento to take home from camp! If weather permits, water activities will be included to cool  off.

BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE LEVEL CAMPS 9AM-3PM

June 1st-4th   |   June 29th-July 2nd    |  July 20th-23rd   |   August 3rd-6th

Beginner and intermediate camps will coincide. Riding groups will be determined based off of  experience. An entry level of remaining in control of one’s horse/pony off of a lead at the trot is  required to meet the beginner requirement. The requirement for an intermediate level is to be  able to safely and confidently canter and jump. Each camp week will consist of expanding equestrian knowledge through games, drills and activities, both while mounted and  unmounted. If weather permits, water activities will be included to cool off.


* Outside riders will be considered for Beginner/Intermediate level camps by coming for a lesson  prior to camp to determine riding level.

2022 CAMP THEMES

Each Week is Different!

Kick off to summer with fun activities: June 1st – June 4th 

Before summer really gets busy with trips, other activities, and horse shows, this will be a  chance to slow down for a few days and enjoy being with our horses who work hard for us year  round. Each day of camp will consist of a mounted ride, activities/games/drills mounted and  unmounted, and various equine trivia (hippology). Beginner and intermediate riding groups will  be assigned based on individual skill and necessity. 

Get ready for show season with a Show Prep Week: June 29th – July 2nd 

During this week, riders will be assigned 1 horse for the week. Riding levels will be divided into  beginner and intermediate groups based on necessity. With a beginner and intermediate team  for the horse, campers will be responsible for the day/day care during the duration of the week.  This week will cover nutrition for horses and overall care, as well as specific show care.  Campers will also learn about what goes into a course design as well as how to set a proper  show course! During the campers mounted portion of the day, we will be preparing for a final  show at the end of the week to be professionally judged. All parents, friends, and family are  welcome to attend to cheer on their camper! 

Let’s start getting ready for IEA with an IEA Prep Week: July 20th – 23rd 

Whether your camper is interested in joining our IEA team or not, riding different horses is  always a great way to build experience. Each day, riders divided into beginner and intermediate  riding levels will draw a horse for the day. IEA is an organization strictly judged on a rider's  position and proper communication with a horse, and that is what the focus will be on that this  week! History of equitation will be discussed with games and activities as well as general  hippology. The week will conclude with a professional judged show on Saturday. Riders will show  their draw for the day. All parents, friends, and family are welcome to attend to cheer on their  camper! 

Time to wind down summer, get ready to hunt with a Fox Hunting Prep Week: August 3rd – 6th Hunting is just around the corner and what better way to prepare than to spend the entire  week doing so with various hunting activities. Campers will learn the history of fox hunting while  also learning the horsemanship and care that goes along with it. TVH Master and Huntsman  Ryan Johnsey will make a guest appearance with the TVH hounds. Riding session during camp will be geared to have your rider ready for a hunter pace and/or an off property trail ride to conclude the week!
