Camp Description

The best way to spend breaks from school is at Camp Cadence!  Our horse camps are packed with an assortment of fun horse themed activities. Each day, campers will enjoy a daily riding lesson (divided by skill level) and further their horsemanship knowledge & skills.  On most of our full day camp days, campers will ride twice including an individualized horse riding lesson in the morning, and again in the afternoon playing games on horseback, bareback rides, & trail rides. Campers will gain confidence throughout camp and learn many skills including safety around horses, horse care, horse grooming, horse feeding, and more! Campers will also enjoy a fishing adventure and water activity day at our summer camps! Whether your camper is new to horses or a seasoned equestrian, our camps are the perfect way to spend their breaks!

Cadence Equestrian Center combines qualified staff, experienced horses, and excellent facilities to create a safe atmosphere where campers can begin or advance their horseback riding skills, expand their horsemanship knowledge, and enjoy outdoor fun.
