Horse Day Camps
Equine Unlimited has been welcoming students from all over the Sacramento, El Dorado and Placer Counties for more than 14 years. Our camp sessions give horse loving boys and girls the opportunity to spend plenty of time with these wonderful animals. Campers are divided into groups, based on their ability, to provide riders with activities appropriate to their skill levels. In addition, campers take part in the daily grooming, tacking up and care of the horse or pony assigned to them. Campers also participate in activities that promote good horsemanship as well as crafts and swimming (Summer youth camp only).
Equine Unlimited's Winter Camp is geared for children age 5 and older. Each 4 day session gives horse loving boys and girls a chance to spend plenty of time with these wonderful animals. Campers are divided into teams and rotate between riding, and hands-on activities. The campers will learn to safely groom, tack up and care for the horse or pony assigned to them. The riding portion starts with the basics and then each child will progress at their own pace. After lunch, we offer arts and crafts, and additional time with the horses. We always stress safety, good horsemanship, and fun.

What to bring:
- Jeans are required
- Boots are required!! This is a safety issue, as we don't want your child's foot to slip through the stirrup. You don't need to buy expensive equestrian boots - Most boots work well, as long as they go above the ankle and have a small heel. Please no high-heeled boots or athletic shoes.
- Please bring a sports bottle with your name on it. We encourage campers to drink a lot of water.
- Sunscreen, a hat and a pair of sunglasses are always a good idea.
- Dress in layers as winter weather is unpredictible (camp happens rain or shine).
- Label everything with name and phone number for easy return.
