Summer or March-Break camps with horses for kids in Nova Scotia!
Do you have a horse-lover at home who talks your ears off about horses?
Delight them by enrolling them for a week at our Summer or March-Break Horse Camps, on our beloved horse haven here at Shelby’s Ranch! Our day camps, running from 9am to 3pm, are specially designed for young equestrian enthusiasts between the ages of 5 and 12 years old.
The camp activities include horse and pony rides on safe and well-trained horses and ponies, access to our Petting Farm, learning all sorts of fun facts about Ranch life and our animals, and of course plenty of Ranch adventures and fun! Learners will also discover a wealth of information about our beautiful horses themselves, how to care for them, how to bond with them, how to ride them, and how to communicate instructions to them, leading up to performing different exercises and patterns of Western Horsemanship.
Full-day activities take place in small groups for kids aged 5 to 12.
Socially-distanced drop-offs start at 9am, and pick-ups are at 3pm.
Please check our FAQ section for clothing to wear, items to bring such as water-bottles, insect repellent, sun screen (and hats for Petting Farm time) and all our answers to frequently asked questions.
A waiver must be completed for each camper, as well as a "important health & food allergy information" sheet.
