Camps & Events
SaddleBack Equestrian’s summer camps are for ages 7 & up with emphasis on safe horsemanship, sportsmanship, and showmanship. Campers ride in daily lessons on one of SaddleBack’s safe and experienced school horse. They also get a realistic introduction into the daily routine of caring for horses, horse-mounted games, a fun horse show, and education materials including their own camp notebook. SaddleBack's qualified trainers lead camps to ensure each camper receives excellent riding lesson instruction.
Beginner Camps – For those just starting out with horses OR with limited experience. Campers will learn to steer, halt, walk, trot, post, and 2-point (jump position).
