Having Fun at Horse Camp 2016!

Summer Horse Camp 2016 is well under way at Carousel O Breeds Farm in Montevallo, Alabama. Campers of all ages have enjoyed learning all about horses, horse care, and riding at the weeklong camp, which is focusing on extreme trail obstacles this year.

On Thursday, camp pictures were taken by Don Breland Photography, and video was shot by Southern Horse Talk.  Stay tuned for the pics and videos! Summer Horse Camp 2016

Campers have made friends to last a lifetime, learned life skills, and cared for their camp horses all week. They are making memories while learning responsibility, persistence, confidence, and leadership, all of which build their overall character set in traditional values.

Don’t forget to sign your little horse lovers up for Summer Horse Camp 2017.  Get a jump on the others and save your spot today.  The registration form can be found on the Forms tab on the website or click here.

Thanks to all the kids and parents who make our summer horse camps and riding lessons so much fun and such a blessing.  We look forward to the show this weekend and to seeing you next year at Summer Horse Camp 2017! Ms Libby
