Horseback Riding for All Ages In the beautiful Golden Gate National Recreation Area

Kid's Summer Camps


Welcome! Camp applications are now open.

We have limited openings, so we will not charge your deposit unless we have room for you in the camps you request. We will send you a confirmation within 3 or 4 days. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Miwok Livery Summer Camps run weekly. Children learn to take care of horses, groom, saddle and bridle, with riding lessons in the ring and fun horsey games and activities. Lessons are on English saddles, as the close contact gives the rider a good feel of the horse and a well balanced seat.

Campers are grouped for riding lessons by age and level. Our knowledgeable staff evaluate the children carefully and place each child in the group which will provide the best, safest and happiest riding experience with lots of hands-on attention.

We emphasize safety, while making the camp fun and educational. Our horses have years of experience introducing riders of all ages to the sport. They love children, and earn their carrots.


Morning Camp - Ages 7 & 8

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m

Morning camp is for ages 7 & 8. The lesson groups are small, with one-on-one attention from instructors and counselors. We help the children to meet their growing challenges with a sense of fun. Children gain confidence around horses in a safe and controlled, but playful environment. Lots of horsey activities go along with the riding lessons.

PRE-REQUSITE: Seven-year-olds new to Miwok Stables must have had at least 5 Camp Prep/Lead-line lessons with us before taking camp. Please see more about Lead-line Lessons here.

COST - Morning Camp: $650 per week, Monday through Friday
Deposit: $300 per week, non-refundable.

All Day Camp - Ages 8 & Up

9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Kids ages 8 & up are given challenges and activities appropriate to their levels, grouped by experience and carefully matched with a suitable horse for their riding lessons.

Riders gain a firm foundation in equestrian skills, learning more about horses and themselves as they advance. Games and puzzles, videos, demonstrations and other activities add to the fun. For many, the enjoyment of horses will last a lifetime.
