Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association Summer Camps

Summer Day Camps:

Every day will be filled with time spent with each child’s “own”  special horse. This includes a daily riding lesson and stable management lesson. (*Stable Management should prepare Campers for the written portion of the Equine Canada English Rider Levels 1-2). Campers will learn a variety of horsemanship skills on and off the horse and will partake in the day-to-day care each horse requires. The fun doesn’t stop! We have art, crafts & outdoor games too. More advanced riders may work on jumping and dressage tests.

Ages 5-12
Horses are provided.
