Campers 5- 7 years old

2020 Pony Pals Camp is for all horse-crazy kids wanting to learn to ride and care for these
wonderful animals.  
 This camp is geared toward 5 - 7 year olds who will be introduced to horses and
horseback riding in Maryland (MD).  Our Counselors, staff and CIT's (Counselor-In-Training) are hand-
picked for their care and understanding of these young riders.

Our Pony Pals Summer Camp is great...
  • for kids who love the animals and the outdoors
  • for learning to ride a great pony or horse
  • because of our low campers to counselors ratio

Daily Activities include:
  • two daily lessons (Wednesday is "Water Wednesday" so no afternoon lesson)
  • horsemanship lessons:  daily care, horse safety, grooming, tacking, feeding, etc.
  • Thursday afternoon Show Prep lesson
  • interactive lectures
  • horse-related arts & crafts

Special Activities include:
  • pizza day
  • water games day
  • western day
  • bareback day
  • Graduation Day - Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be holding the Graduation
    Day ceremonies.  Thank you for understanding.

Campers bring their own bag lunch to enjoy under the shade trees.

Confirmations are sent via email.  If you do not receive a confirmation within 10 days of sending your
application, please contact us at either 301-421-9156 or at woodland16301@verizon.net

Although we do have a refrigerator, we recommend that campers bring their lunch, drinks and snacks
in a small cooler; please the label the cooler with their name.  We have soda, water and juice machines
and water and energy drinks may be purchased at the Tack Shop.  Parents may also want to give their
children some money to spend at the Tack Shop.

Campers must have their own helmet.  They should wear long pants and a hard-soled boot with a small
heel.  Our tack shop has a special package of helmet and paddock boots for $80.00.

I rode at Woodland as a kid (won my first blue ribbon here!) and now I am back as an adult - and my
son is learning to ride here too!
