This is going to be an unprecedented summer at Dapple Hill Farm Pony Camp. DON’T MISS IT!

DHF’s annual summer Pony Camp is an affordable opportunity for children and young teens to learn about the world of horses. Campers are introduced to ponies and horses, becoming familiar with different breeds and their temperaments. On the ground, campers learn the basics of nutrition, grooming, first aid, and horse health. Under saddle, campers will learn to ride! In a group format, campers will have daily lessons on position, control, and over fences.

We limit our sessions to fourteen students to ensure an optimal student/teacher ratio. Sessions will further be divided into two groups depending on age and/or ability of the rider.

Activities include: bobbing for apples, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, horse games and a costume class horse show. DHF Pony Camp is famous for “THE WEDDING.” Each session concludes with the marriage ceremony of our two most eligible ponies who are fully dressed as the BRIDE & GROOM.

Life skills learned: responsibility, time management, teamwork, problem solving, decision making, patience, courage, etc…

Campers will also love sharing their time with the farm dog HILLAPEA, our mascot who oversees all activities with royalty and supreme authority.

Camp is offered in weekly sessions throughout the summer. Camp Hours: 10am – 3pm
