At Pony Farm, no two days or weeks are exactly alike. We tailor the camp experience to the campers who attend each session. In fact, their first evening at camp, the campers make a wish list of everything they’d like to do during their stay. We do our best to fit them all in. In addition to riding and more fun with the horses, we offer many other activities during each one or two week session, including:
- Vaulting – Take a vaulting lesson with Pam Falkins and the amazing Avalon.
- Gymkhana – Gymkhana refers to all kinds of games played while on horseback.
- Exit the Ring – Quiet country roads and friendly neighbors make for wonderful trail rides along the back roads, woodland trails, and through fields, orchards, and pastures of nearby properties.
- Swim with the Horses – Need we say more?
- Take the Minis for a Swim – Our miniature horses and Dunkin the mini donkey love a good cooling off as much as the next pony.
- Pony Spa – A hard-working pony deserves a luxurious wash and groom.
- Pony Dress-up Day – Yup, it’s a thing.
- Carriage Driving – Take a carriage ride in the ring or on the quiet roads around the farm. Try your hand at the reins — you’ll never find a more enthusiastic instructor than our Executive Director, Boo Martin!
- Camp Out with the Horses – Yes, our horses and ponies like to ride, drive, dress up, swim, play games, and camp out!
Not everything that happens at Pony Farm happens on a horse. Each session is packed with games, friendly contests, and other activities for campers to choose.
