Horse Camps

Come experience the joys of horseback riding at Horse Camp. Day Camp Kici Yapi's riding programs are progressively structured to provide campers with a fun experience of interacting with gentle horses.

Overview

Instructors are trained in horsemanship and carefully match the experience level of the child with an appropriate horse.

Safety is our top priority at Horse Camp. For all horse programs, we recommend that participants wear heeled leather shoes or boots. 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.
