Riding summer camp
Does your child love animals and nature? Then you have arrived at the right place! Reserve an unforgettable experience for your children!
The summer camps have been held on the ranch for 15 years now. They are managed and conducted by the staff of the ranch, who are familiar with the horses and the site. Our staff has considerable professional experience in the world of horses, educational experience, and considerable experience working with children.
Our summer camp interweaves two main themes – horseback riding and preserving nature and the environment.
In the summer camp, your children will learn about all aspects of the equestrian world, from proper care of horses, learning the background of their lifestyle and learning to interpreting their body language. We view the formation of a bond based on mutual respect between man and horse as being an inseparable part of riding. In addition, they will acquire riding skills as well as perform experiential riding activities – such as riding the horse through the fields and vaulting riding. Finally, the children will participate in workshops delivered by the veterinarian of the ranch and its farrier.
