All About Just Horsin' Around
Camp Details for Parents and Riders
We offer One Day Camps, Two Day Camps and Four Day Camps. Camp runs from 8am to 4pm. Transportation is available as a free service. Camps are limited to 16 riders. If parent attends Camp with child and rides, both pay fee. Rick Jepson is our main instructor with over 48 years of experience working with horses and children. We have another experienced adult working with him during Summer Camps. We have older, experienced teen helpers for other camps.
Our Camps teach youth to ride in a supportive environment. We believe strongly in experiential, hands-on learning. Children learn to take care of horses through feeding and grooming. They learn to saddle and bridle. Working in the round pens and arena gives them technical horsemanship and riding skills. These skills are further practiced during daily trail rides through the beautiful Sonoran Desert!
We provide horseback riding opportunities for children 7-18 years old. We are a true horseback riding camp. We don't do arts and crafts or anything else. We are not childcare. We are outside all day. We do have lots of shade. Please make sure that your child likes horses and the outdoors before enrolling.
The wide range of horse back riding activities and experiences offered at Just Horsin' Around empower your child to get out of their comfort zone and learn something new! Our experienced instructors give all participants a chance to learn more about riding horses! Our horses are kid friendly and ready to take your child on an adventure.
