Warm Beach Camp’s Horsemanship Program shares the love and truth of God through horses, riding, and horsemanship instruction. Our goals are that participants grow in their spiritual and personal life as well as their riding disciplines. Horses and horsemanship teach an abundance of life lessons that build maturity in participants. Safety and responsible horse handling are central to everything that goes on in the program. Staff undergo careful training to align safety practice and instruction under the guidelines of the national program of the Certified Horsemanship Association program (CHA). Under the leadership of Lisa Tremain, Horsemanship Director, the staff make every effort to provide a safe, professional horsemanship experience - one that will have life-long impact.
