summer horsemanship program

Calling all campers!  Come spend the summer with horses at Misty Meadows!

Misty Meadows Summer Horsemanship Programs are for animals lovers and kids who want to get horse-empowered! Through Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) experiences, campers explore and discover new skills and ways of thinking, while developing trust, confidence and other life skills in partnership with our horses.  

Students take part in the daily care of our herd and learn firsthand how these powerful animals move and communicate. Each day will include fun ground-based activities with peers and horses, basic riding skills, a good ole’ horsing around. No prior horse experience necessary!

We invite you to find your stride at Misty.  For more information, please call us or 508-338-7198 or email info@mvhorsecenter.com

Spaces are limited.
