Summer Camps

Is your child a horse lover? If so, our summer riding camp is just the right place for him or her. We have been running our camps since 1998 and know how to do camps successfully. Many campers return year after year, and start calling to sign up in January. French Hill Farm summer camps are designed especially for campers ages 7-14 who wish to learn how to ride or to improve their present riding skills. Additionally, we offer Kindercamps for children 5 and 6 years of age. Our goal is to teach the basics of riding and taking care of horses in a safe and fun environment. We feel that safety around horses is extremely important. Our school horses are carefully chosen for their ability to help people learn to ride without the fear of getting hurt. In addition to our morning and afternoon riding sessions, we spend time learning all about horses and their care. We learn to bathe horses, groom them and tack them up. Other activities are trail riding (depending on level of campers), cleaning stalls and feeding the horses.

We will be closed July 4th.
