PONY CAMPS

Our Pony Camp is the perfect introduction to the magical world of ponies for young pony lovers 4-6 years of age!

At Meadowsweet Ranch we strive to teach children how to have FUN with ponies while being SAFE. Our goal is to see smiling faces, hear giggles of joy and outright laughter of excitement.

 

Our counselor to camper ratio is high so that each camper gets the attention and help needed to keep them safe while they are learning to handle and ride our ponies.

 

We want to share our love of horses and ponies with our campers and make Pony Camp a positive, enjoyable experience for every camper!

Pony camps happen at various times during the year.  Best way to know when is to join our email list.

Educational time

​​

This is generally in the form of short stories written for this specific age level.

 

This is a fun way to learn something about ponies that keeps

their attention.

Grooming and riding prep

Learning to groom teaches the campers some of the necessary care to keep ponies healthy and happy while being ridden. 

 

This is also great bonding time.

Riding time

We introduce riding to the campers in the safest way possible by having a counselor lead them.

 

We start off with balance improvement exercises and usually end with some trotting which always brings smiles.

 

We feel strongly that hand-led rides for our 4-6 year olds is safest for the camper and the pony. If your child has previous riding experience, has a fairly balanced seat and knows how to utilize emergency stops, we will be sure to help your child advance their riding skills and abilities.

 

Our ponies are docile and familiar with children. They have

been exposed to many noises and obstacles in their lives.

Something to take home

 

This may be a picture they color or some sort of craft that they worked on.  Hopefully it will remind them of their time at pony camp.

There are often games with the ponies.  The games are used to

develop skills that will help them develop skills to help their riding while they have lots of fun.

 

Some times there are even games with other campers.  It is always fun to make new friends and playing games together is a great way to foster friendships and encourage teamwork.
