Horse Camp – It’s Like Having a Horse of Your Own for a Week

Warm Beach Horse CampOwning a horse is a dream-come-true for many. Daily caring for a horse, riding, connecting, bonding – these are some of the joys of horse ownership. Horse lovers enjoy the freedom and thrill of connecting with a horse. Not just controlling the animal, but becoming a partner with the horse.

Horse ownership may not be realistic for everyone. But a week of Horsemanship Camp at Warm Beach in Stanwood, Washington, gives a taste of horse ownership and much more. Horsemanship Camp is first of all about learning to safely and responsibly care for and ride horses. It is also a time for friends and fun activities.

This summer, Warm Beach Camp is adding more riding time into the schedule in the mornings and evenings. Riding lessons occur both in the arena and on the trail each morning. A horse science ground class will be offered in the afternoons. Evenings feature mounted options such as drill team, vaulting, and trail riding. In addition to all the horse time, campers also go swimming, do crafts, and experience the personal challenge of the climbing tower and high ropes course (ages 12+). Mounted games, such as pole bending and barrel classes, will test the rider’s balance, harmony, and horse control. Level 2 and above riders have a chance to apply their riding skills in team sorting cattle. New this year is an opportunity for Level 2 and above riders to learn some English riding. The week’s schedule is packed with horse and horse-related activities. Horsemanship Camp sample schedule

A graduated riding instruction curriculum is taught by Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) trained staff. Whether a rider comes as a complete beginner or with experience, there’s an appropriate class scaled to their riding ability.

Campers will have amazing fun learning new skills that apply not only to riding but also to life. For more information and to register for Warm Beach Horsemanship Camp [register url=”/programs/horsemanship-programs/horsemanship-camp”]Horsemanship Camps[/register]

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
