Splendor Farms is a "girls only" horse/farm camp designed for "city" "horse crazy" and "I want to be a vet when I grow up" girls from ages six and up. This camp is designed to give girls an opportunity to learn cooperation, self-confidence, and teamwork through hands-on instruction on a real working farm.
 
They will not only learn the basics of horsemanship by daily grooming, saddling, riding lessons, and a trail ride, but also enjoy many other activities including a rodeo, horse games, arts and crafts, swimming, and garden harvesting and cooking lessons. There will be field trips to local berry, alpaca, and dairy farms, and more!
 
Also, guest speakers, such as farriers, equine veterinarians & massage therapists (yes, horses need massages, too!) on various subjects like Equine Digestion & Nutrition & Equine Dentistry! Day camps and overnight camps are offered.
