Kids Love Our Camps!
Our Daughter is currently attending the one week summer camp program at Fitzgerald Stables. She is having the time of her life (understatement). It has been wonderful picking her up each day and hearing about how much fun she has had and seeing how confident she feels. The program director, Tammy, has made all the campers feel right at home and, in addition to riding, helped them accomplish different tasks/chores at the barn. If you are considering lessons and or camp here It's well worth it!! Not just a camp or lessons- confidence builder! —Carly C., August 2, 2017
My daughter just finished horse camp with Fitzgerald Stables this past week. It was her first experience with riding lessons and she had a blast! She has ADHD and anxiety and the staff were so kind and patient with her. She gained so much confidence and fell in love with riding. We will definitely be looking into lessons here! —Jenny S, August 1, 2018
This place is awesome! One of my sons has gone here for 3 years running and it is the activity he looks forward to the most each year. Highly recommended! —Mark L, July 1, 2018
My son loved horse camp, it was his first experience around horses, so I was little concerned, but he absolutely loved it. Everyone was nice and the camp was well organized. —Desislava S., August 1, 2016
Fitzgerald Stables offers a variety of horse camps for all ages! Give your child memories for a lifetime with a camp experience that is safe, educational and fun!
Summer Horse Camp
We offer half-day camps throughout the summer, depending on experience. Because camps are kept small and run by our own staff, we are able to tailor our camps to the individual students. Our camps provide a fun, safe environment where children ride, and learn about horses.
Our summer camp programs are for children ages 5-14. Each day the campers will be given a riding lesson, and learn something new about horses through hands-on demonstrations and to end the day, work on a horse-related craft.
EXTENDED PICK UP HOURS ARE AVAILABLE. For more info, please inquire.
