St. Louis County’s Full-Service Equestrian Facility

Summer Camp

Camp-group-outsideIs your child 'Horse Crazy'? Then Baskin Farm Camps provide a perfect summer activity! We offer a great opportunity for children to spend the entire day with horses. Campers learn hunt-seat (English) riding as well as proper care of horses and riding equipment. Our experienced staff provides quality instruction with an emphasis on safety and sportsmanship.

Six one-week sessions are being offered this summer for campers, ages 7-14. The sessions are designed to accommodate different riding skill levels, from beginner to intermediate.

Each session will begin with an orientation day to familiarize campers with the facility and important safety do's and dont's. Campers will learn how to care for and work safely around horses as well as how to properly use riding equipment. Activities will include:

o daily riding instruction

o demonstration of riding equipment: how the equipment is used and it's purpose

o learning about colors, markings and the anatomy of horses

o games on horseback

o arts and crafts

o blacksmith demonstrations

o horse grooming and bathing

o instructional videos

At the conclusion of each session, parents and families are invited for a camper riding demonstration and party.
