SCHOOL YEAR CAMPS

Meet Once Per Month with Your Cohort

Join us for a half-day camp all school year long! 

We have had so much success with our summer camp that we have decided to offer ongoing cohorts for our campers where they can do camp for a day once a month all school year. Our arena is covered but open on all sides so is well ventilated. 

Activities will include vaulting, riding, sledding when there is snow, helping around the farm, and general fun with the horses.

Ages 6.5-9 and 9-14. Younger kids are welcome on a case by case basis.

Saturday or Sunday afternoons (still deciding) 1-5pm. $75 per camp.

Pony Pros summer camps are really fun and educational. You'll LOVE our camp counselors. Camp runs 9am-2:30pm daily. Each camper does vaulting, some riding in a saddle with reins, and trail riding (on a lead or independently based on skill level). We take 30 minutes for lunch and an hour for horse knowledge games, but the rest of camp is with the horses.


Our riding lessons are structured and taught by equine professionals. New riders learn with vaulting and need to earn the reins. More experienced riders can work on jumping cross country, bridleless, and dressage or cowboy dressage. All students will gain experience with horse training, grooming, and riding.

We have snack at 10:15 and lunch at 12.


Please wear long pants, closed-toed shoes, and bring a sack lunch. Please bring a model horse, like a Breyer or Schleich, to use for model horse shows. We provide helmets.

Talent Show: There will be a talent show Thursday at 2pm. Everyone is invited to attend. That’s the best time to come to watch the kids ride.

Parking: Park nose-in on the back side of the barn (north side) or nose in at the indoor arena. Please don’t parallel park as it limits passage of other vehicles.

Waiver and Photo Release: Use the buttons below. Go file > download > pdf.

Clothing: This is a barn so please dress accordingly. Everyone must be in close-toed shoes. Riders must wear pants but can change into shorts in the afternoon. No bike helmets.


Dogs: Barn rules state that dogs are to remain in vehicles. This is due to the fact that riding insurance companies do not cover any accident that involves a dog. Dogs are the number one cause of horse accidents at stables. Dogs can be exercised at nearby Tumalo Reservoir.

Driving Directions: The barn is set back about 2/3rds of a mile off of Collins Road. There will be 2 splits before the gate, but there are address markers along the way that will help. Drive past the cows, staying to the right. If you look up the hill to the West, you will see a fancy wooden gate with black metal supports. At the second split, stay to the left, heading up the hill to the gate. The gate has our address on it. You’ll go through the gate then see the paddocks with horses in them. Keep going and you’ll see the round pen and barn. Stay to the left. Curve around, keeping the round pen on your right, and you’ll see parking on the far side of the barn.
