Horsemanship Basic Camp Program  

My horsemanship camps -An excellent way to be involved with horses and have a lot of fun. Students will acquire great skills from the horses.  We have an instructor and assistant instructors to help students to interpret what the horses are trying to teach the student.   Each day we will ride for an hour or so and then care for the horses in the proper manor.  

Horsemanship camp level 1 are for students with little or no experience with horses.  We start with day one getting acquainted with our horses and learning to trust the horse.  Each student is assigned a horse for the week that they will ride and take care of.  Students can take this camp over and over again, learn new tricks in the trade, work with different horses and improve their horsemanship skills.  Students with more experience will be given horses with less experience.  Human student learn how to think like a horse and anticipate what going to happen thus allowing human student to direct the action and help train the horse student.  Students with less experience get horses with more experience.  This creates a trusting and safer environment for both horse and student.

Camps are limited to 5 students and  reservation required.  Cost $360,  and meet Mon-Friday 9am to noon.

 Day or half day Rides

Monet saying Hi

When I’m not doing camps, I plan to go out for 1/2 day or possible full day rider.  Rides won’t be  hard but will be longer and other riders who join must have some riding experience on more than normal trail rides provided by trail riding businesses ( I Don’t do that type of rides)…  Cost will be $150 for 1/2 day rides or  $200 for full day rides.   Rides will have to email or call for available dates, times,  and horse.  Currently planning a ride across Hatch Pass (day ride, 20 miles) in June.  Other places I plan on Riding, Knik River for about 15 miles round trip (Day ride).   Maud-Plumley Trail ( 8 mile ride, 1/2 day)   Crevasse and Long Lake.   (1/2 day rides or could be full days with a lunch!)  Other places too.
