Pony Tails Riding Center
What kind of Riding is right for you?
  1. Summer Camps
    Summer Camps
    Our Summer Camps are meant for all ages and experience levels. We offer week long camps for kids with experience and three day camps for young riders who have no horse experience at all. Our camps offer not only riding, but grooming, crafts, games, and great memories and experiences! Please scroll down for more information.
  2. Parties
    As of October 1st, 2018, Pony Tails Riding Center will no longer be able to offer birthday parties. We apologize for any inconveniences and please call for prices on single lessons as a fun alternative

Summer Camps

Come spend your Summer Vacation with us!

Our summer camps offer loads of fun activities, great experiences, and of course, horses!
Riders at our intermediate and advanced summer camps will ride at least twice a day, every day. Beginner campers will ride one to two times each day. Everything from English and Western, to Bareback and Vaulting (Gymnastics on horseback).
Riders will also enjoy crafts and games both on and off the horses, Tye Dye, scavenger hunts, team building exercises, and more.
Our camps are small in size in order to offer a unique and personal experience. No more than five riders per camp.
Typically our summer camps run from June to August. All of our camps are now 5 days long!
Inermediate and Advanced camps will run from 9:30 to 3:00 each day and the Beginner camps will now run from 9:30 to 1:00 each day
We will also periodically offer supplimentary day camps during the Spring, Fall, and Winter, and exact dates will be located here on this page as they become available.
Please contact Nikki Caudill for exact availabilites.
All summer camp activities will be held at Nottingham Farms unless otherwise stated. We occasionally take a field trip to our veterinarian at Lebanon Equine Clinic, but if that is the case permission slips will be issued.
Beginner Camps
Our Beginner camps are now Five Days long!!!
Beginner camps are designed specifically to introduce new riders to the sport. These camps are for beginners only and accomodate riders ages six and older.
Beginner camps run from 9:30 to 1:00 each day and campers will need to bring a large snack
Intermediate and Advanced Camps
These camps are designed for riders of all kinds, from intermediate beginners all the way up to advanced levels. These camps focus on expanding on the riders' skills and having a great time while doing it. Each rider will work with a horse for the week while also getting to know the other horses in the barn as well as their fellow riders.
Participators in these camps will also be working on team building exercises in order to perform a musical show for their parents on the final day of camp.
These camps run from 9:30 to 3:00 and campers will need to bring a lunch and a snack.
