Many young children love horses and ponies. There is no doubt about that. "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." Sir Winston Churchill.

Young and Old alike sometimes are nervous around the bigger horses but so love that special smell and how they make them feel. Does your child love to draw, look at pictures, watch videos of horses and ponies, get excited as you pass a horse farm looking at all the pretty horses. Maybe pretend to have a very special horse of their own?

There are great benefits in taking part in mini summer camp. Children first and foremost get out and become active. They socialize with other children of like age groups and common interest. Children develop confidence, control of emotions, empathy caring for their equine partner, teamwork, and forethought, just to name a few.

710 Excursions offers mini-camp during the summer vacation months where little ones can take in the experience and learn in a safe environment. We provide instruction in general horsemanship and move onto beginner to intermediate courses in driving. It is a great starter to further their skills whether it is to move onto riding or continue into to a more advanced driving curriculum.  We are knowledgeable to the fact children only stay focused for so long. We combine structured lessons with many fun-filled equine and non-equine activities. Children go home with great memories, lots to talk about and often a little more inspired to take that next step in the equine world. Not to mention often played out and tired. Taught in a knowledgeable environment safety is our first and foremost consideration. Miniatures being so little and kind, children are often less intimidated and are willing to take on new challenges with their equine partner. We often will team up beginner students with some of our intermediate students until they learn the ropes. Once they are ready to move on to trying it their selves we will let them spread their wings.
