Horses teach us about both our inner and outer worlds. Our experience is that this summer program will open up your child’s world in many ways. The five-day experience will provide a rich outdoor experience.
Nature Heals is excited to partner with Body N Soul for the final week of camp at Haven Hills. All proceeds go to support the mission of Nature Heals.
July 31st - August 4th

Students will have the experience of learning about horses and horsemanship both on and off the ground. Hands on experiences will include safety skills, grooming, daily care of the horses, barn management, and tacking up and English riding skills. Lessons will start with riding in the ring. If skills and attentiveness progress, students have the opportunity for trail rides and games on horseback. There will be horse related crafts and learning games.
Our goal is not only to have students experience the joy and freedom of riding which can be very empowering, but also to explore relationship dynamics between horse and rider, and to instill a sense of responsibility for their care. Also, there is the inevitable frustration that will arise with learning new skills with animals that do indeed need to be partnered with and not controlled. In our experience, all of this translates to a week of tremendous growth and excitement. Ages 6-12.
