The Traditional Equitation School, the oldest riding school in Los Angeles, is offering weekly horse camp sessions for children 6 to 12 through Friday, Aug. 16.
Participants can gain riding skills and learn about horse breeds, enjoy craft sessions and games, and join trail rides around the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. The camps are centered around everything involving horses, giving young riders a well-rounded equestrian experience.
The horse camps cater to riders of all ability levels. Campers ride for approximately one hour each day. Lessons in the arena are held Monday through Wednesday, with trail rides on Thursday and games on horseback on Friday. Campers also enjoy horse-themed crafts, learn about horse breeds and colors, clean saddles, feed horses and more. Riding is completed during mornings when temperatures remain cool. Other activities are held in covered outdoor areas or indoors in air conditioning when necessary.
“They will learn how to ride a horse, groom a horse and take care of a horse,” said Tori English, owner of the Traditional Equitation School. “They will also do a lot of really fun crafts as well. It’s a great experience.”
Campers ages 5 to 10 can enjoy the Unicorn Camp from June 24 through June 28. The immersive experience allows children to participate in a fantasy experience where they solve puzzles to rescue a unicorn. Campers will ride horses decorated as unicorns, and participate in unicorn-related crafts.
