“I am so impressed - Horse Camp is the first time my son has come home with goals. He talks about where he wants to be at each camp with his skills testing and he works and studies to achieve it.”

–Camper Parent, Stanwood, WA

“Trail rides, how speakers use horses to explain Christian messages/helped her understand and resonated with her, she got much more out of bible studies this year and asked for a better Bible as a result”
