Kraus Farms Summer Camp

The staff at Kraus Farms offer a fun and educational program teaching students about horses in a fun environment. Our instructors stress safety, horsemanship, and enjoyment as the most important elements of our camps. In addition to riding, your child will learn how to groom, saddle, bathe, and care for a horse. When the children are not in the barn, they are participating in games, crafts, and educational presentations. We offer Mini Buckaroos Camps for ages 5 & 6 and Little Ranchers Camps for ages 6-10 among many others. We also offer year-round riding lessons and trail rides from March through November.
