Is your child crazy about horses? Are you looking for a unique summer activity filled with horses? Then Painted Hilltop Farm is for you!
Learn what it's like to own a horse of your own!
We are proudly creating safe and memorable equine experiences for all of its campers.
Each camp day offers new adventures as campers learn all about horses, stable management, equine assisted learning and so much more. Campers spend the week exploring nature, making new friends and enjoying tons of fresh air at our spectacular facility.
Themed camp days allow campers to try a variety of different riding disciplines including Bareback, English, Western and Equine Assisted Learning. Hands-on horsemanship sessions introduce campers to horse care, and proper grooming. Campers can tap into their creative side with fun, unique horsey crafts and partner up for team building challenges around the farm.
Our riding camps are designed and headed by a licensed Equestrian Canada Certified Instructor. Low camp/counsellor ratios provide a safe environment and ensure campers are properly supervised at all times. All of our staff are friendly, experienced and professional. A First Aid/CPR Certified staff member is on site at all times.
Painted Hilltop Farm camp programs provide a perfect introduction for new riders just starting out as well as for experienced riders looking to take their skills and knowledge to the next level.
