Summertime at Magnolia Acres offers a fun, relaxed environment for kids ages 5 & up to learn equestrian skills, as well as general care for the animals.
Days are filled with horse activities geared towards developing knowledgeable horseman. Campers will enjoy a daily riding lesson, learning about stable safety, grooming, tacking up, feeding and training horses. Campers will also engage in crafts, games and be able to cool off with water activities. Each week we will have a guest speaker/demonstration including vet, farrier or equine dentist. Some camps will have guest instructors or riding demonstrations. On Friday, 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!
Camp is perfect for all levels and ages! looking forward to another FUN summer!

Mini 3 Day camps- July 10th-12th
We design our camps for the riders to enjoy our ponies and the outdoors being a kid! In the morning, they will learn to catch their pony, groom, have a riding lesson and a hands on horse activities. After lunch, they are split into groups and compete in different events for the "Golden Horse Shoe Award!" We compete in water games, relay races, in-hand pony challenges, trail courses and horse knowledge. We understand not all kids want to participate in every event so there's options to keep them busy. We keep points throughout the week and the winning team is announced Friday afternoon.
In the later part of the week, riders will be recorded. The film will be reviewed between the rider and instructor. This teaching method allows not only the instructor to see growth but the rider to self-critique. It's an excellent way to see their accomplishments and areas for improvement.
