Cowboy & Cowgirl Camp this Summer-2012!

June 14th, 2012

OutWest is excited to announce a new addition to this summer’s schedule: OutWest Cowboy and Cowgirl Camps! We couldn’t think of a better way to spend the summer as a kid than on horseback, learning to saddle, ride, rope, and take care of horses. Kids at the Cowboy and Cowgirl camps will do just that! Our camps are unique in that we provide a “cowboy” way of life, where responsibility, hard work, and playing outside give kids an all-natural feeling of accomplishment.

This summer, we offer three levels of camps. During our first week (July 9-12), the Ranch Hands will learn safety, grooming, saddling, nutrition, breeds, ranch horse versatility, and will show their horses in their very own ranch horse show at the end of the week! Ages 9-12 and those cowboys and cowgirls with little to no horse experience are ideal for this week’s camp – they’ll leave knowing the responsibilities it takes to own their own horse, with a confidence and comfort with horses and the “cowboy” way of life.

We can’t wait to welcome the Outriders during OutWest’s second week of camp (July 16-19). Perfect for more experienced horseback riders, these cowboys and cowgirls, ages 12-17, will practice more advanced events such as sorting, reining, ranch horse versatility, and cutting. Riders are welcome to bring their own horses or use OutWest’s quality ranch horses for the week.

Finally, for the younger cowboys and cowgirls looking to get an early head start, the OutWest camp for Wranglers (under 8 years old) provides a two-day experience in which kids will become comfortable with horses, and have fun, with safe, experienced staff. Western-style games, crafts, and plenty of horseback riding will fill up our two days together (July 23 and 24).

Quality, friendly, and “kid-broke” OutWest horses will be provided. Download the registration information on our website and view the information about the camp leaders and horses. We hope to see you there!

    Wondering if you are offering the camps again this year? My daughter and her horse may be up for the Outriders camp. Please let me know.
