Pony Paddock at Dragon's Lair Summer Camp
Pony Paddock at Dragon's Lair offers a day camp for spring break and summer. Camp is designed to teach students what it would be like to have a horse/pony of your own. Camp is based on the United States Pony Club manuals. Children learn what horses eat, how to identify health issues with horse, hoof care, care of tack and equipment. All children are expected to participate in barn chores, including cleaning stalls, feeding the horses and cleaning tack. Teaching aids include videos on safety, workbooks, demonstrations as well as hands on practice. This is the perfect opportunity for that "horsecrazy" child to find out what it is all about. All campers have the opportunity to ride twice per day.
