Horseback Riding Camps

Aspen Acres Farms offers the best horseback riding camps for the kids year round. We have something for everyone. Our facility offers a variety of English and Western camps throughout the year to catch everyone interests.

The facility is operated by Stacey Longley CYW, BA. With over 10 years of experience in Therapeutic, special needs, special need camps, support work, able-bodied camps, and running successful programs.

Aspen Acres is a big advocate in rescuing animals, we are currently home to a large variety of farm animals consisting of goats, donkey, horses, ponies, sheep, bunnies, dogs, and cats. Our four-legged friends are very well cared for and all have very special jobs on the farm.

In the last 10 years, I have had the opportunity to run many successful camps, from these camps I have always asked my campers and parents feedback on the day.

With the help of past campers, we now offer a full day, which everyone including the animals can enjoy.

This is for individuals a bit older that have an interest in horses. All camps are coached and supervised by Stacey Longley
