Ponypalooza Pony camp is offered
at Starlight Farms as a way of helping the children
bond with the ponies and learn about their daily
care and upkeep.
We believe that riding and basic
horsemanship is best introduced in private lessons
and most of our camps are geared toward the
children enrolled in private lessons. In addition
to the camps geared toward enrolled riders,
we will be offering one newcomers camp each
summer geared toward those who have not ridden
at all or who have not ridden in our program.
All of our camps offer a chance
for the children to really learn horsemanship
skills that are not generally dealt with in
Each day will include riding
time. The rest of the time is spent learning
horsemanship, barn safety, learning about life
on the farm, interacting with farm animals,
crafts and other activities.
We try to make the riding sessions
fun and game-based. Most of our children are
enrolled in private lessons so camp offers a
chance to ride with other children and enjoy
some fun time on horseback.
