Horsemanship Programs Details

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.  

My main horsemanship camp are for students with little or no experience with horses.  We start of on day one either getting acquainted with our horses or learning to trust our 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 horsemanship and improve their riding.  Students with more experience will be given horses with less experience so the student and help train the horse.  Students with less experience get horses with more experience and the horse helps train the student.

Camps are limited to about 5 students on a first come bases.  Cost $275,  and Run Mon-Friday 9am to noon.

VERY YOUNG RIDER  Fun Days

Monique as a baby

Kids Fun Horse day, suggested ages 3-7.  This is usually just a really fun day for the little riders.  I get my 4H students to help with the horses and we just have a really fun and educational time with the little kids and horses.  I try to have some activities beside just riding but riding is always the big hit.  This year the Kids day will be the 2nd Sat in the month starting with

Monique All Grown up! ( (Kinda)

May.  (May 8, June12, July 10, Aug 14, and maybe Sept 11)  Kids will be introduced to the horses and allow to ride (Horse will be lead).  If kids need a side walker, that will be the responsibility of the parent.  If parents can’t sidewalk, be sure and let us know and we can get a volunteer to help!  Cost $45 for about 2. hours.  All Kids MUST be registered to participate!

Adult Rides

Sat or Sunday Rides. and Some evenings will be available if requested   There rides are for improving our horsemanship, relaxing and having fun!  Rides will be about 1 hour through beautiful scenery. $160/4 lessons 

We are not a Trail Riding Stables.  We do learn to ride on the trails but we don’t learn excellent horsemanship in one lesson!  If you are an experienced rider, understand gaited horses and just want to see some of the beauitiful places we have to ride in Alaska, I have been know to make exceptions!  What horseman doesn’t like to meet other good horse folks from out of state!
