The Benefits of Eden Farm's Summer Horse Camp

  • Teaches kids responsibility. At Eden Farm, kids experience the thrill of a hunter/jumper show barn while learning English riding basics and horse care. Our camps are perfect for horse enthusiasts to explore their passion and make lifelong friends. They also learn how to halter, lead, groom, bathe and safely handle the horses. Join us for a summer of fun and learning!

  • Enhances self-esteem. At our camp, mastering new tasks boosts children's self-esteem and confidence. We set age-appropriate goals, allowing kids to experience the joy of achievement. Whether it's mastering a posting trot or completing a grooming task, each accomplishment teaches valuable life skills that will benefit them beyond the camp. Join us and watch your child thrive!

  • Aids in fitness. Riding a horse is a full-body workout! Every muscle from your core to your arms, legs, back, and neck is engaged as you adjust your body to the horse's movements. This constant motion improves balance, increases blood flow, and gets your heart pumping. Join us for a ride and feel the benefits for yourself!

  • Requires focus and attention to detail. Interacting with horses teaches children to focus on the present moment. Riding requires their full attention—no texting or tweeting allowed! With hands on the reins, seat in the saddle, and mind on the task, controlling an 800+ pound horse demands concentration and mindfulness. Join us for a horseback ride and experience the power of being fully present!

  • Offers a non-digital way to engage their minds and bodies. Interacting with horses teaches kids vital life skills. Horses have personalities and moods, requiring children to communicate effectively, read body language, and establish authority. Unlike video games, horses offer immediate, real-world feedback, fostering empathy and responsibility. Join us for a transformative experience at our camp, where kids learn from the best—our beloved horses!

Explore various experience levels in our camps, catering to both absolute beginners and those seeking more advanced riding skills. Summer horse camp provides an excellent introduction to a new sport for beginners, allowing them to immerse themselves in the enjoyment of working with horses. Children with a passion for horses can establish a strong foundation and make informed decisions about their future involvement through a week-long immersion in the equestrian world.
