-What Horse Camp goers are saying-
“I’m so thankful for the Warm Beach Horsemanship Program! Expectations are clearly communicated- such as arrival and prep times, and instructors are always on time and ready. Because Warm Beach Horsemanship is a Christ-centered program and because Christ values and appreciates His creation, this value and appreciation shines through the instructors to the students.”
–Camper Parent, Annette
“My family has been involved with Warm Beach horsemanship for over 25 years. My husband loved the program so much that he gave his favorite horse, Flicka, to the camp when he stopped riding. Our family has been involved in riding lessons, summer horsemanship camps, parent and me horsemanship weekends, vaulting lessons, vaulting camps, competitive vaulting, and now therapeutic vaulting. We love the opportunity to learn horsemanship in such a supportive and caring environment.
- Jo Anne, Camper Parent
