Join us for a unique camp experience where your child will meet new friends and share in their love for horses. Jackie Dickson is the head coach and is licensed with Equine Canada.  The kids are immersed into the wonderful world of horses in a safe learning environment.

Get into the spirit.
Jackie's love and knowledge of horses is matched by her enthusiasm to teach kids proper horsemanship, horse care and riding skills.

Our highly structured program which uses the Equine Canada rider level curriculum provides excellent training for those just learning to ride, or for those kids who would like to follow through and take thier rider level testing which focuses on the the finer points of equitation and horsemanship. All students learn how to handle themselves around horses and how to keep themselves and their mounts safe.  As a licensed coach Jackie can give you your rider tests both written and ridden so you can get your rider levels with us.

We run camps each summer and we have a minimum group size which is 6.  We try to place kids into groups in the camp that matches thier appropriate skill level. This ensures everyone will learn at the same pace and have a better experience. We can also arrange for private lessons to assess your child's level and assist them on a weekly basis in group lessons. Spaces are limited as we have limited camps each summer,  so please sign up now to save your spot. 

 The camps are held at our horse ranch on the TAhkini River Road.  We pick up the kids at the Canada Games Center at 8:30 a.m. and drop off at 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.  The Camps are $ 550.00 for the week which includes an outing to Equinox Rox for a rock climb and a zip line.  

There is two camps this year at the Ranch.
