The Horsemanship Camp (offered two different weeks) provides a good foundation into horses. Campers will be introduced on how to handle, ride and care for the horses. English Riding Camp is an introductory camp to learn diagonals, forward pace and equitation. Open to participants who have at least six months of riding experience and are capable of cantering, our English Jumping Camp focuses on riding a course, understanding strides, and judging requirements. Trail Camp is open to advanced beginners to intermediate riders over the age of 11. Campers will experience trail riding and hiking through the Santiago Oaks and Irvine Regional Park system.

Miller Equestrian Services
Instructor: Ann Miller
Escondido, CA
(858) 945-1344
Miller Equestrian Services provides horseback riding lessons and horse training for Morgan horses and American Saddlebreds in a friendly, wholesome, family-oriented environment. Adults and children of all ages are welcome. Miller Equestrian has a great youth program as well as summer activities. This summer, it will host four weeks of its own horse camp. These camps will run Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m, with swimming at the end of each day. The 2018 Summer Camp dates are June 11-15, June 18-22, and July 2-6. Cost is $375 per week, and extended-day options are available. Students will have their own horse for the week. They will advance their riding skills from whatever point they start at, from beginner through competitive show riders. There are several instructors that will be teaching groups at different levels. The focus of the week will be learning to understand how your horse thinks, and then use that understanding to get your horse to work with you in a safe, happy environment. Safety is stressed at all times along with proper horsemanship skills. The camps will teach about health care, physical fitness of the horse, proper nutrition, transportation, anatomy and physiology, and of course grooming and tack care. Things like proper dental care and hoof care are also covered by leading professionals. This is a very hands-on camp and all students are encouraged to try their hand at everything from driving a horse that is hooked to a cart, giving shots, worming, and of course cleaning stalls!
