Summertime at Magnolia Acres offers a fun, relaxed environment for kids ages 4 & up to learn equestrian skills; as well as, general care for the animals. Days are filled with horse activities geared towards developing the knowledgeable horseman. Campers will enjoy a daily riding lesson, learning about stable safety, grooming, saddling, feeding and training horses. Campers will also engage in many craft activities and be able to cool off swimming.
Most Camps will run Monday through Friday. On Friday of full/half day camp, an informal horse show will be conducted for all camp participants. This show gives our riders the opportunity to demonstrate their newly acquired skills to their friends and family. A small awards ceremony with refreshments follows the show! All family and friends are welcome!
