HOW DO CAMPERS SPEND THEIR DAY?
Mornings are a blast at TES Horse Camp! Campers enjoy three activities: horseback riding, hands on learning about horse care, and a horse themed craft.
The fun continues after lunch! Campers love our group activities such as water play and weekly scavenger hunts. Every afternoon we head to the barn to feed the horses an afternoon snack, then finish our day with crafts.
CAN CAMPERS RIDE MORE THAN ONCE A DAY?
Absolutely! Sometimes once just isn't enough!
Campers are welcome to take a group lesson with the riding school after camp from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Book early! After camp lessons are limited to four students. Purchase an after camp lesson for a single day or the whole week. (Not available on Mondays).

The safety of our campers and staff is our top priority.
TES has been successfully operating our riding school during the pandemic through implementing several measures to minimize the risk of transmission of Covid-19. We are building on our strong foundation with additional practices for our summer camp.
TES is employing the services of a certified Covid Compliance Officer and registered nurse who is also overseeing Covid compliance for the next "Star Wars" film. We have developed a comprehensive plan to use best practices.
Campers will be divided into three groups. The groups will not intermingle. Each group will have its own check in/check out area at the beginning and end of the day. Siblings will automatically be grouped together.
TES will not be offering single days of camp this summer. All campers must enroll for the entire week, as we want to keep campers in a consistent small group of the same people.
TES has already been vigorously disinfecting equipment during the pandemic and we will continue to disinfect equipment, surfaces and supplies after each use.
Helmets will be disinfected after each use, though we encourage families to purchase their own helmet if possible.
Everyone will be required to wear a mask at all times.
Campers and staff will clean their hands several times per day.
Wellness checks, including taking temperatures, will be conducted every morning at check in on every camper and staff member.
Staff members at TES are periodically tested for Covid-19.
The vast majority of camp will be held outdoors.
Our Covid Compliance Officer has assisted us in modifying our indoor classroom. We have HEPA filtration. The classroom will be limited to one group at a time, campers will be socially distanced and the room will be disinfected after each use.
