Summer Camp

At Fairwinds Farm, our number one priority is safety!  Our skilled instructors know our horses well - unlike other camps where the horses are "trucked in" for the summer, our horses work with us all year. Why is this important? It means that we know our horse’s strengths, weaknesses and personalities and can match them expertly to your child’s riding ability and style.

Throughout the week, riders will learn important skills both in the saddle, and on the ground. On Friday, riders participate in the camp horse show to demonstrate their new skills for family and friends, with a BBQ to follow!

Our summer camp runs from Monday – Thursday from 9AM to 4PM, and Friday from 9AM - 2PM. We have 5 weeks of summer camp each year. Riders are split into two groups based on riding ability. Cost is $310 per child. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due with your application. Click here for more information and then click here to to sign up!

Instructors follow the general schedule shown below, and tailor each class to meet the needs of the students.
