Horsemanship

Horses and Riding have always been an integral part of the identity of Path of Life Camp.  We currently have 27  horses, kept year-round, for summer camps, spring and fall horsemanship lessons, and trail rides most months of the year.  

Horse lovers with all levels of experience are always welcome at Path of Life!  Each year we have hundreds of children and adults ride for their very first time, and hundreds keep coming back year after year. 

Each lesson is 60 minutes long, composed of 30 minutes of dedicated instruction and practicing a new barrel pattern, and wrapping up with 30 minutes of leisurely trail riding.  Students are placed on horses assessed to match their current riding level, and helmets are provided.

Horsemanship Lesson requirements: Students must be at least 8 years of age for group lessons and at least 6 for private lessons.  Students must wear long pants made out of durable material. This excludes leggings, as they give little protection to the legs and cause the rider to slide in the saddle. Closed toed shoes are required.
