Learn to ride in a Relaxed & Friendly atmosphere.

Summer Riding and Farm Camp at Meadowlarke South

A little bit of Country in Mississauga!!

Join us for a fun-filled week on the Farm. Campers will participate in everything from Horseback Riding to Horse Care; being hands on with the horses is the best way to build a bond and create confidence.  Campers will also spend time and get to know our rescued farm animals.

Campers will be divided into groups of 10 and rotate through the following activities everyday (except Friday which is “Show Day”)

  • Riding Lesson
    Depending on your level of experience, you will be riding at the walk, trot and canter. If you are one of the higher levels you may even do some jumping.
    The instructor is assisted by knowledgeable volunteers that will help the riders if needed
  • Lunging & Horse Games
    Campers will participate in different activities and games on the horses to aid in balance/confidence
  • Horsemanship
    Campers will be hands on with the horses learning how to properly groom, saddle and care for the horse
  • Know Your Horse
    Explore horses further learning about horse habits, behaviors, illness’ etc.
  • Know Your World
    Animals, The Environment, Health & You  –  Hands on humane education with our rescued pigs, cows, sheep, goats, ducks, turkeys & chickens, we discuss our values and the lives of animals that are consumed by humans.   We talk about our environment and what we can do to make a positive difference.   These are often lively discussions, and even at a young age campers have strong opinions, which they have an opportunity to voice.

Friday’s we run a special day.  In the morning campers participate in group games, tying in the knowledge they have acquired during the week.  In the afternoon Parents & Friends are invited to see campers dress their horses for a costume contest, after which they will perform a Musical Ride where they will demonstrate riding skills that they learned throughout the week.

Bring your own lunch and invite your Family and Friends to come out and watch starting at 1:45 on Friday.

Some weeks will be Theme weeks, where we learn more about a certain farm animal or an environmental topic.   Campers will do crafts and group songs related to the topic.

On hot days we will play water games with the hose or sprinkler, we do recommend that campers bring a change of clothes.

We strongly recommend that campers wear pants to ride.  Shorts or capris don’t supply enough protection and rub marks on the legs can occur.  Breeches are the best option, but soft material pants like leggings, yoga pants or khakis can also be worn.

Sandals, Crocs or open toed shoes can not be worn at any time around the animals.
