Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center is offering a Horse Camp for the special needs community June 26-30 and July 10-14 (teen camp).

The camp will be a week-long horse day camp for girls and boys with special needs ages seven and older.

The camp will begin each day at 9 a.m. and end at 12 p.m.

Camp includes a week of hands-on learning about horse care and grooming from a professional instructor, fun and games on horseback, games and more.

There will be a horse show at the end of the week to show off and win prizes.

The donation fee of $275 includes a “Twin Pines” t-shirt.

For more individualized attention, the camp will consist of class sizes of six students.

The following are the requirements for the Special Needs camp: Must be within our standard weight limit of 175 lbs and ambulatory; some core strength to balance on a horse with assistance; no animal abuse issues; must be able to take care of own personal care in bathroom or have a caretaker for these duties; must be able to accept wearing a riding helmet; must wear long pants (jeans preferably) for riding activities.
