Have you ever wondered how a horse thinks? Does learning to tack and ride a horse appeal to you? Then Midway College’s “Between the Ears” equine camp is for you! Campers will learn about a horse’s perspective in horsemanship, riding and non-riding activities. Structured age appropriate activities will encourage campers to gain new perspective about horses.
Riding experience is not necessary, as the camps are beginner level and will introduce horse science, equine crafts, and strengthen leadership skills. Through a combination of riding exercises, basic equine care, and other instructional activities, students will learn to work in partnership with the horse.
