National Horse Camp: Choose from a one or two week Resident Horse Camp designed for New Beginners to Intermediate Riders ages 8-10 & 11-15.

Each student is assigned their very own Guest Ranch Horse at Check-In...this horse will become your child's faithful companion during their National Horse Camp adventure! This week long or two week long is a 'horse power' experience your kids will never forget!  With only eight to ten campers allowed per session, parents can rest at ease and know that each child will receive all of the personal attention they need during their stay at our Tennessee Guest Ranch. 


Students ride twice daily under the National Horse Camp Director. 
Each morning starts out with an in depth horsemanship class, followed by a two hour formal riding lesson in hunt seat, dressage or western pleasure.  Each student progresses at their own pace during the week while learning a variety of riding disciplines.  After the formal morning lesson, it's time to pack our saddlebags and hit the trail!  Don't forget to pack your Bibles for Bible Study on the trail!  Our young equestrians learn all about what the Bible has to say about horses!  Afterwards, it's time for a little bareback riding through the river!

Young Equestrians at the Tennessee Guest Ranch learn about horses from the ground up!   During this incredible program each young equestrian will acquire an enormous "in depth" knowledge by caring for their horse daily, participating in feeding and nutritional programs, hoof care and ferrier education and medical care.  For those serious horse enthusiasts who are considering becoming a veterinarian, there's even more to learn in our pre-veterinarian courses!  Learn how to give shots, float teeth, administer medications, treat and prevent leg injuries, how to use ultra sound machines, and lots more!
