Splendor Farms is a “girls only” horse & farm camp created out of my love of animals and desire to share my farm with “city,” “horse crazy,” and “I want to be a vet when I grow up” girls. Summer Horse & Farm Camp is designed to give girls an opportunity to learn cooperation, self-confidence, and teamwork through hands-on instruction on a real working farm.
They will learn the basics of horsemanship through daily grooming, saddling, riding lessons, and trail riding, plus enjoy many other farm activities including a rodeo, horse games, arts & crafts, swimming, gardening, and cooking lessons. There will be field trips to local berry and dairy farms, and more!
There will be guest speakers such as farriers, veterinarians & equine massage therapists (yes, horses need massages, too!) who teach subjects like equine nutrition, digestion, and dentistry! Both day camps and overnight camps are offered.

Please Note: These mini-camps are limited to six girls, ages 10 and up, who have attended horse camps or have some experience with horses. Must be mature enough to spend the night (or two) away from home.
Orientation begins at 9:00 a.m. on the first day of camp (Saturday) and usually lasts about 30 minutes. Please do not be late. We need to start on time so those who need to get to work/class are not delayed. Before and aftercare is available.
Our camp counselors are some of the best around and each counselor is CPR certified and has many years of camp and equine experience.
This is a must-read as you agree to these terms when you register
We strive to run safe trips. All guests should realize the inherent dangers in horseback riding and other outdoor activities.
They should be in good physical condition. Each guest will be required to sign an “Agreement to Participate and An Affirmation of Risk” (see waiver form below). Guests under the age of eighteen will need a parent’s signature on the agreement. Only parents and legal guardians can sign these forms. If you are bringing your kid’s friends, these forms can be downloaded from our website in advance of your stay/ride so their parent/guardian can sign the waiver and date it the day(s) they will be here.
We ride Western. All of the rides are guided. We do not allow double riding. Children must wear helmets, which we provide. Riders with no experience are welcome!
Please Note: Persons over 250 pounds are not able to be adequately accommodated due to saddle size, their comfort, and the comfort of our horses. We hope you understand that for the safety, comfort, and well being of everyone involved that we cannot allow persons over 250 pounds to ride with us.
Please read our full Horse Riding Rules and Policies Page as you agree to these terms by signing up and it is critical you understand everything and ask questions prior to coming out.
