What do we need to bring?  Capricorn provides the horses, tack, and helmets*. Our facility also includes a lunchroom and refrigerators for campers to use. Remember, most of the day will be spent outside, so take that into account when preparing your child for each day of camp. If in doubt about whether to bring something, please consult our staff—they’re happy to help. Following is a list of items we ask campers to bring. Parents will be provided additional information upon registration.

  • - Sack lunch and snacks
  • - Plenty of water
  • - Long pants and hard sole shoes or boots for riding
  • - A comfortable change of clothes for non-riding activities
  • - Horse treats (optional)

*Students under 18 must wear protective headgear, so riding helmets are furnished. However, students can wear bike helmets with written parental permission. 

What will they do?  Campers are divided into groups according to riding experience, comfort level, or age. Groups receive hands-on safety lessons and are shown how to groom, saddle, and bridle. Campers will then be matched to a horse based on their individual needs. Each day features horseback riding and horse care instruction including helping with traditional barn chores like feeding, watering, and grooming horses as well as cleaning the barn area. Other activities may include outside games, arts and crafts, and games on horseback.
