Let Us Introduce You to Our Sage Farm Summer Camp!
Every summer we provide a unique learning experience for children starting at age 6. What more could a child want but to combine summer camp with horses? We offer a five day camp from 9 AM to 12:30 PM, Monday through Friday during the summer vacation. Children learn about building a partnership between the horse and rider. Campers ride everyday from half an hour to 45 minutes. They also learn basic horsemanship both on and off the horse. Camp costs $475 per week including a non-refundable deposit of $175.
