What to Expect
Due to the short nature of the program, Lil’ Buckaroos has little formal riding instruction beyond the basic safety rules necessary for a trail ride; actual riding time is about 2 hours total. Campers will get a chance to interact with and learn about horses from the ground, including grooming, feeding, ground lessons, and some barn chores. In addition, Lil’ Buckaroos will participate in all other Classic Camp activities open to their age group.
What to Bring
Lil’ Buckaroos should bring a pair of long pants (jeans are great) for riding and sturdy, close-toed shoes. Campers can bring riding boots if they have them, but do not go out of your way to bring or purchase them. If you provide your own boots, they must have a heel (1/2″ to 3/4″) and no tread. Sealth has a supply of boots to borrow if needed.
Campers are required to wear helmets when riding, which we provide. Camp Sealth’s riding staff are experienced riders who undergo extensive training. We meet or exceed all horse program standards from the American Camp Association and have an excellent safety record. Sealth owns its own herd of horses who are calm, friendly, and have been working with children for many year
