Winter/Spring Riding Activities --2020

(Summer Camp Schedule Follows Spring)

Winter Camp:  Winter is my favorite time of the year to ride = cute fuzzy horses, NO flies, and NO sweat!!! Enjoy two days of riding, and you still have that Monday off from school to get in a day of rest (President’s Day)!

Date:  February 15 to 16

Time:  Saturday 10:00 am to Sunday 5:00 pm

Spring Camp:  Come enjoy  the  weekend with the horses and other animals at SMF!  All level of riders welcomed.  One of the special activities we will do is an egg hunt on horseback with the Shadow Mountain egg being extra hard to find! There are prizes for everyone and lots of fun! 

Cost:  $180.00

Date:  April 18 to 19

Time:  Saturday 10:00 am  to Sunday 5:00 pm

Mother/Daughter Camp:  This is for all you moms who have been wanting to come to horse camp. What a great way to share in your daughters love of horses. You do not need to have horse experience, and can partake in as much of or as little of the riding that you want.   So stretch your leg muscles, and come enjoy a healthy spring weekend of farm life in the country.  “Moms” can also be substituted by grandmas, aunts, older cousins and sisters!

Additional $150.00 for more than one daughter.
