Summer Camp

Paul Cates Stable offers day camps during the summer break. Our campers spend the day in a variety of activities focused on learning the basics of horseback riding & caring for the horses. At the camp, some of the topics & activities each day are:

  • Grooming
  • Tacking
  • Equine Terminology
  • Basic Care & Feeding
  • Post-ride care
  • Two horseback lessons daily
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Movies & much, much more!


As part of the routine operation of the stable, the children are often treated by a visit from a veterinarian or farrier. Our camp attendee’s are supervised by at least two riding instructors during the riding lessons & adult super-version is constantly provided.
