Horse Lover's Camp 

Horse Lover's Camp sessions run for one week with a horse show every Friday at 11 a.m. for parents to attend. Farr Park Equestrian Center divides each weekly session of the camp into three different groups: (P) = pony camp (Ages: 6-8); (W) = Western-style riding (Ages: 9-12); and (E) = English-style riding (Ages: 9-12). When registering, be sure to enroll in the proper age group and style of riding. Campers learn basic riding and horsemanship skills, participate in crafts and games and other horse-related activities.
