Summer Camp 2011
As we mentioned on our home page, "we love kids". That's not just a slogan; we truly have a soft spot for children. For many of them, we are a second home in many ways. We offer several programs geared towards children, not the least of which is our Summer Camp. This program is a marvelous way to introduce your child to the wonders of the horse. If you have children who love horses, then our camp is for you. Each child has a daily riding lesson, plus a terrific learning experience about everything from the points of the horse to the care & use of tack. If that weren't enough, we also have several arts and crafts projects for our campers. Campers go home with a picture of themselves with their favorite horse, set in a frame made from an actual horseshoe that they have decorated.
WE HAVE 3 AGE CATEGORIES:
Little Britches..................ages 3-6
Short Stirrups..................ages 7-10
Equestrians.....................age 11 and above
Brushy Hill Farm offers a lesson program that caters to young and old alike. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned veteran, Ev applies her teacher training along with her extensive knowledge of the sport, to help put both children and adults at ease and at the same time instill incredible confidence on the part of the student. This translates into a more enjoyable lesson for both student and trainer. Although our program attracts many younger riders, we also have a place for that more mature individual who simply wants to fulfill that life long desire or would like to rekindle earlier experiences. We will help you get there with dignity and make sure it is fun along the way. You will be hard pressed to find another instructor who provides the quality of instruction and is as attentive to your success as our's.
