Hunters Chase Farm Austin, TX
Our focus is teaching your child about horseback riding and care of the horse. We teach your child to love the horse and all the fun that goes along with english and western riding. Our program incorporates good horsemanship and team work, while the children help each other to understand the basics or riding all the way up to advanced horseback riding skills. The campers ride in the riding arena daily (weather permitting) and learn the overall basics of riding or improve the riding skills they have already acquired. They even get to go on a trail ride through our 45 acre mini ranch. They ride past the pet cemetery and the rustic "postal" bunk house (it used to be an ole post office) and then back through the trails. Maybe they will see a deer or two or maybe a crazy jack rabbit. We divide the camp into small groups (average about 6-7) based on their age, level and who their friends are . You will be amazed at what the kids can learn about horses in a week, much less all summer. Hopefully you can come watch on Friday as they show off their new/old talent. The kids will learn parts of the horse , saddle , bridle and other equipment. We will teach them safety while riding and when around the animals. They will learn the different medical conditions and about leg wrapping techniques for exercising the horse or treating an injury. Campers will also learn mounted exercises to help the riders physical condition and different emergency procedures to take if needed. For more info: 512-842-2246 or visit our site.
