Summer Camps

With things opening up again here in Alberta, we are pleased to announce our SUMMER CAMP schedule for 2021. In these camps, kids can learn about horses, try their hand at horse-painting, play lots of games and enjoy other fun activities.  We have camps for beginners, camps for intermediate riders, and everyone in between.  Some camps are bareback and some use saddles.  Each camp has a different focus.

Our 2019 camp schedule and fee information are available through the menu on the left of this page.  If you have any questions about our Camp Programs, please contact Roxy at "info at heartshavenranch dot ca" via email, or give us a call.


Beginner's Camp (6 years and up)

This is where it all begins at HHR. Here we lay the foundations for our relationship and understanding of the horse. This is a fun camp with lots of co-pilots helping everyone be safe and secure with and on a horse. The riding is bareback, the fun is abundant and the skills move ahead quickly. Students learn safety first and then add grooming, ground work and riding to their list of accomplishments. In this camp we get a really solid understanding of the horse and why he behaves as he does. We even get to paint our ponies, too.


Saddle-up Camp

This is the next step after Beginner’s camp and a place to work on your Rider Levels 1 and 2. You will be introduced to the English saddle and started in basic riding skills in a saddle. The pace will increase from Beginner’s camp and there will be class riding and individual time. This is a skills-based camp. There may be some jumping depending on the level of the students. You will learn about horse care and feeding, as well as equine first aid. We will do some trail riding as well. This is a great camp in which to further your riding skills and work on your Rider Levels. If you already have your Level 1, we will move you forward into your Level 2 work.

 Prerequisite: HHR Beginner’s camp or equivalent
