Horseback Riding Equestrian Summer Camps in Litchfield County
What little girl doesn't fantasize about one day owning her own pony? Let us not forget little boys dreaming about riding a horse like the cowboys and Native Americans did. This summer you can give your child, sometimes as young as age three, a week long experience riding, taking care of and enjoying everything about horses. We've rounded up some great stables that offer summer camps in Litchfield County. We can't think of a more beautiful environment to enjoy spending time with horses this summer.
