Riding and working with the horse is the focus of our hands-on camp! No arts and crafts — just horses!
Chatfield Stables is the longest-running horse camp in the area. Every child has their own horse for the entire week. Kids get to lead, feed, water, and work with their horses every day!
Campers learn safety, horse care, grooming, bridling, and saddling. We ride daily, whether in the arena or out on the trail!
Kids should bring a healthy lunch and drink in a cooler. Riding boots (cowboy boots), jeans with no glitter on the back pocket, a hat, and sunscreen are required. You may bring your own approved riding helmet or use one of ours free of charge.
- Camps take place every week from May 23 through August 12.
- Each session is 9:00 AM–3:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
- Additional and off-track sessions are also available.
- Camp is open to children 7 and older.

"Our daughter and two of her friends spent a week in the summer camp. The staff and owner's priority in regards to kids and guests is safety. The girls thoroughly enjoyed taking care of a horse for a week and spending time riding on the trails. Each young wrangler received a nice certificate that included a photo of them on their horse. The parents spent some time chatting with Bob on the last day and we enjoyed his stories and it's helpful when one takes the time to get to know others. He's sincere and dedicated to the horses, the stables, and the kids. The kids will definitely go back to Chatfield Stables!" –Willie
"My 12-year-old son and I went on the hour trail ride yesterday! We enjoyed our time so much. Horses are very well taken care of and our Wrangler Amber was just the best! Thank you for a wonderful memory and hope to get back soon!" –Roxanne
