Horseback Riding Camps

Pony Paddock at Dragon’s Lair offers a day camp for Spring Break, and Summer. Camp is designed to teach students what it would be like to have a horse/pony of their own. Camp is based on the United States Pony Club manuals. Children learn what horses eat, how to identify health issues, hoof care, and care of tack and equipment.
