A Parent’s Perspective on Summer Camps at OEW – Register now for Spring/Summer Lessons & Camps

March 27th, 2014

A parent’s perspective on the day camps offered at OEW:

It was a wonderful experience for my son and would be for any child who likes horses and wants to learn more about them. Riding once a week is fine, but going to the barn every day for a week took his riding to a whole other level.

And the camp is about much more than riding. My son learned “why horses do what they do” and how his behavior affects how the horse’s behavior. He learned about the daily care of horses and not just theory, he got to practice it every day, all week. He learned about feeding horses: what they eat, how much, how often. He got to learn about common health problems with horses and what owners need to know.  He was taught how to get a horse (and rider) ready for the show ring. And all of this learning was pure fun for him and his fellow campers, surrounded by horses of every age from foals to retirement and everything in between.  

Did my son like day camp? He greeted me with a grin every single day I picked him up and this year counted down the weeks until the advanced day camp session began. It was the high point of his summer, absolutely. And he said more than once he wished it lasted longer than a week (a sentiment echoed by other children too!)
