Horsemanship Camp at Columbia Horse Center

Summertime at Columbia Horse Center is a fun, active and healthy place for kids ages 8-16 to learn about and be around horses. Through lectures, demonstrations, hands-on activities, and riding lessons, campers enjoy a full day of horsemanship in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

The days are spent in a relaxed, informal atmosphere where safety and fun are experienced hand-in-hand with riding, hands-on-workshops, river trip, trail rides, games on horseback, and learning about the history and care of horses. It is important to us that our kids enjoy each and every day to the fullest. 

The first day of each session our campers are evaluated in their riding skills and placed into appropriate groups. Many of our campers are first time riders, others are involved with our lesson program and are taking their equestrian education a step further. All our campers are instructed from the first day on safety skills around a horse. Our Horsemanship Campers have two horseback riding lessons per day, plus several hands-on-workshops.

(Before & After Care)

Campers are most comfortable wearing shorts during the hot summer months. However, they must bring a pair of long pants to change into when riding. All campers must have proper riding boots or shoes with a small heel. Campers will not be permitted to ride without them. Approved riding helmets are mandatory and can be purchased at Woodland Tack Shop, 301-421-5954 at a discount. If purchased at Woodland Tack Shop and your child stops riding after camp is through, we will purchase it back from you at 50% of the cost provided it is in good condition, has not been damaged, and you have your receipt.

Please bring a lunch for your child every day. We do have a refrigerator, but it gets very full so it is recommended that your child brings a small cooler. An afternoon energy snack is also a good idea as the kids are very active throughout the day. There is a snack machine in the lounge.

The final day of each session campers will participate in a drill presentation featuring what the class has learned over the 2 weeks. Parents and friends are invited to come. This gives our campers an opportunity to show the skills they have developed during camp. Awards are presented to each camper, followed by hot dogs and  refreshments.
