National Horse Camp: Choose from a one or two week Resident Horse Camp designed for New Beginners to Intermediate/Advance Riders ages 8-15.
Each student is assigned their very own Guest Ranch Horse at Check-In! This horse will become your child's faithful companion during their National Horse Camp adventure! This one or two week long program is a 'horse power' experience your kids will never forget! With only 10-12 campers allowed per session, parents can rest at ease and know that each child will receive all of the personal attention they need during their stay at our Tennessee Guest Ranch.
Students spend hours upon hours in the saddle under the direction of well-trained equestrian instructors. Whether it’s Hunter/Jumper Lessons, Western Trail Riding, Drill Team Performances, or Bareback Games campers always have a blast all while improving their horsemanship skills each time they mount their trusty steeds! Young Equestrians at the Tennessee Guest Ranch learn about horses from the ground up! While learning and caring for their horse daily, participating in feeding and nutritional programs, hoof care and farrier education and medical care...each horse lover will also learn all about what the Bible has to say about horses and all of God's magnificent creation surrounding the Ranch!
Veterinary Science is a critical component of this incredible program! Each young equestrian will acquire an enormous "in depth" knowledge of veterinary science and animal husbandry. For the serious horse enthusiasts who are considering becoming a veterinarian, there's even more to learn in our pre-veterinarian courses! Learn how to give shots, check for parasites, pull blood, administer medications, treat and prevent leg injuries, and lots more!
Evening time brings mounted fun, bareback games, cook outs, marshmallow roasts, night time swims, and a Southern Bell Etiquette Dining Course !
