Camp Spring Lake is excited to partner with HHH Ranch for our Horse Camp program. HHH Ranch prides itself on well-trained horses, wonderful facilities in beautiful setting, and knowledgeable staff that will do their utmost to make your week an experience to remember. Instruction is provided on the ground and on the horses.
Safety is our top priority at Horse Camp. For our horse program, we recommend that participants wear riding boots or leather boots with 1” heel. If boots aren’t available, tennis shoes can be worn with the understanding that they are not recommended. Please don’t send boots or shoes with a high heel. Long pants and protective helmets are required of all participants. Helmets will be provided by the camp. Our Horse Camp is a progressive recreational riding program and is not intended to replace formal riding lessons.
Alternative programs may be planned if weather conditions such as extreme heat, rain, or wind jeopardize the safety of campers or horses.
Colts – Introductory Level

During the week-long session, campers will spend two hours with horses per day at the stables, while still getting the opportunity to participate in traditional camp activities for the rest of the camp day. Instruction includes safety, leading, mounting, dismounting, reining, and basic ring riding. Campers will be bussed to and from HHH Ranch.

Buckaroos is an intermediate program for campers with at least one year of riding experience.
