Bits & Bridles summer camp is a really fun time for all of the kids. They ride for at least an hour every day, help with the barn chores and learn a lot about the care and work involved in owning a horse. They have crafts that are horse related and help them to learn while having fun. It is a great bonding experience for all of the kids. The support they provide for each other is a beautiful thing to watch. It is amazing how an animal, in this case specifically a horse or pony, can transform someone in a very positive way.

Snack and Drinks are recommended. Food storage is available on request.
