Austin Horseback Riding Camp 2014

2014 Summer Camp Activities

for Children in the Austin, Georgetown, Pflugerville, Manor, Round Rock and Hutto Areas

Looking for fun and engaging summer camp activities for your children while you are working?  Or would you like to explore opportunities to learn side-by-side with your child during vacation?  Whatever your interests are, Austin Tri Star and Maverick Horseback Riding have teamed up to provide you with comprehensive services to meet your needs.  Take a look at what we offer, and if you have any ideas on how we can custom-tailor horseback riding programs to meet your needs, let us know!

Horseback Riding Lessons on the Trail

Maverick Horseback Riding offers horseback riding lessons on the trail to individuals of all skill levels.  Because all of our lessons are trail based, your child (and you!) can enjoy a varied setting with practice on hills, water crossings and lovely horseback rides through the woods and to see some amazing animals.

Children will learn how to catch, lead, groom and tack their horses as well as general information about horses such as horse breeds, nutrition, adequate care and more.  For a photo tour of our rides, click here.

We are currently offering riding packages to children (and parents) if purchased throughout the month of March:  Purchase 10 “Buffalo Rides” for $500 and enjoy an extended session with summer ranch days, where your child can take advantage of learning about ground work in the round pen, feeding duties and caring for horses.  The typical Buffalo Ride is a full 3 hour session, but with the package purchase, your summer rider will get an additional hour of round pen work, ground work with horses, horsemanship lessons and, at your request, Spanish immersion.  You may use two rides in one day to complete a morning and afternoon ride totaling 8 hours.

Learn more about package options custom-tailored to your equine-related needs.  Call us at (512) 230-8413 for more information.

Campers are split into small riding groups based on their ability and previous riding experience. Our goal is to build each horseback rider’s skills and confidence enabling them to ride horses safely and correctly. Theory is an essential plank of our equitation curriculum. The ‘whys’ of horseback riding, horse training, and horse behavior, are equally important to the ‘how’s’. Small groups  allows our instructors to offer individualized attention and develop riders at their own pace. While beginner riders may be aided with a leader (if they need one), our advanced riders use a variety of tools including video tape to critique their progress.

Group horse care allows  our campers to have hands-on experience taking care of “their own horse”. Campers work as a group to groom, tack, bathe, and care for their horses. While time in the saddle develops riding skills, the barn lesson teaches all aspects of horsemanship and caring for horses. Beginner campers learn about  grooming, tacking, tack care, horse bathing, and horse breeds including colors and markings. More advanced campers continue their education learning about feed,shoeing, caring for injuries, wrapping, and show prep.
