“Work Camp” Confident, well trained working students are needed to paint, weed, pick up around the barn and generally help out.  Many year round projects need helping hands! Contact Steph to arrange work times. Get extra saddle time to prepare for upcoming competitions, train for HPF or Eddy Farm Trials, or get a chance to put mileage on a young horse. Open to veteran, current lesson students, CSC, GMC or Horse Amour alumni ONLY please.

Groups of 3 or more regular lesson students may ask for “work camp" on weekdays, typically Thursdays during the summertime. Camp will be $45/day, to include at least one ride, and swimming privileges. Manage the barn, work with your favorite horse, help with training the young horses and assist Sue and Steph with chores around the barn. Get your friends together and schedule some camp dates! If you are NOT a regular weekly lesson student, if you are inexperienced or less than 10 years old, you must be pre-approved by Horse Amour staff and an additional fee may be required for additional staffing…

Dates for 2017 work camp: 6/22,6/23, 7/13, 7/14, 7/19, 8/24, 8/25.

Camp is a wonderful thing for the horse-crazy rider that needs more barn time! Come spend the day at Horse Amour and live the good barn life!!
