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 regular lessons.

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.
