Camp


At Summer Wind Stables, we take great pride in the quality of our various camps. We have excellent, well behaved horses. Our teachers are all people who have ridden for years and are skilled at teaching all levels of experience. We have many different ground lessons so our students have a broad knowledge of horse management. Our campers ride 2-2½ hours per day and learn about horse management and care during hands-on ground lessons when not riding. Our educational program is unsurpassed in the northeastern Ohio area.

               


We own 14 horses so that our students have a variety of riding experiences to achieve the best results possible while participating in our camp program. Summer Camp runs all summer in weekly sessions. Our campers swim midday in our heated swimming pool to cool off after lunch. We group the kids by ability level and keep groups small. Our campers come back year after year and new students take additional weeks of camp because they enjoy it so much. We're pleased to see the wonderful progress the students make as they grow throughout the summer.

Summer Wind Stables’
 
goal is to foster a love of horsemanship and to teach the proper techniques in caring for our equine friends. Our students will fully appreciate the responsibilities and rewards of being an equestrian and develop a life long respect for horses, while developing self-discipline, patience, perseverance, and self-confidence. Our riders gain a strong foundation that will enable them to succeed at any form of horsemanship they desire!

Our Summer Riding Program offers any number of weeks ranging from one to eight weeks, and may be taken non-consecutively.
