Horsemanship

Welcome to the Sunset Lake Horsemanship Program!  We have a 100′ by 200′ outdoor arena, 50′ round pen, covered seating areas, and miles of trails. We have hand-picked our horses to be kind and gentle around children, while also having the training of an arena horse. Our Horsemanship program is run by staff certified as instructors through Equestrian Management Workshops–a nationally accredited equestrian organization (http://www.eqmw.com).

Summer Camp
During the summer months, our horsemanship staff work to provide a fun, safe environment for all levels of riders. Each week long program consists of morning classes at the barn (lessons include grooming, tacking and riding). Each afternoon, campers will rotate through camp activities with their cabin. If you’re riding at Trail Hand level or above, consider taking our Advanced Horsemanship camp in August.
