Horse Crazy Kiddos? Put ‘em In the Saddle At Newell Lodge Horse Camp!

A superior riding experience designed for the 9-12 year old  in your life who “needs” a horse. Foster responsibility, confidence and independence while engaging, learning and growing with horses.

Are you the parent of a horse-crazy child who “needs” a horse?  Rest assured, you are not alone. However, there is an easy solution to your dilemma, which doesn’t involve purchasing a horse. Instead, put your child in the saddle at Newell Lodge Horse Camp.  

This year Newell Lodge will host its 12th annual summer camp for horse lovers ages 9-12.  At Newell, we want children to develop a lasting relationship with their horses, enriching and transforming their lives. That’s why this year’s theme is “Horses Go to Hollywood!”

All students will expand their knowledge of horses in an atmosphere designed for safety, personal growth, and fun.  What’s in store for your young horse lover?  

  1.  Riding Skills. Develop good foundational riding skills for both the first-time rider and the more advanced rider.  Our staff will work with each child individually as they become more proficient riders.   
  2. Horse Ownership.  An in-depth look at the responsibilities and costs that are so important for horse ownership.   Campers will realize the commitment, hard work, and joy that goes into caring for a horse. 
  3. Confidence & Independence.  Through up-close interaction with the horse, riders will learn to overcome their fears in a safe, fostering environment. 
  4. Exercise.  Daily riding develops muscle strength and endurance for both the rider and the horse.  
  5. Hands-on participation.  Campers will be allowed to participate in the daily routine of feeding, watering, grooming, barn maintenance, and providing care for horses, along with the two goats and several chickens. 
  6.  Social Skills.  Riders will find themselves in a positive social environment with other kids who share their passion for horses. They will enjoy the interaction with other campers as they complete craft projects and other activities.   
  7. Loads of Fun.  Campers are never bored!  Horse camp is an age-appropriate equine immersion experience. As a result, many of our campers come back year after year.  

If you’re a parent who’s on the fence about horse camp, we’re happy to answer any questions you have.  Call today: 912-496-2838
