OUR MISSION PROGRAMS
Summer Horse Day Camp
Have you heard? There is Horse Day Camp at Back of Beyond this summer! If you are between the ages of 6 and 11, enthusiastic about horses, and want to learn the very beginning steps of riding while having lots of fun with friends; this camp is for you!!
Camp runs from Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm. Every day is full of exciting things to do with horses such as grooming, riding games and other horse-related activities. We have indoor and outdoor riding facilities, lots of trails and 9 special horses and ponies to enjoy. Each day also includes a Gospel application with the horses to help kids find hope and healing in Jesus.
Healing With Horses
Sessions consist of time with a certified Equine Assisted Personal Development Coach and a horse. The goal is to develop new skills, perceptions and better manage life’s situations. Each session includes lots of horse/human interaction and supportive discussion.
A certified coach works with children, families, and other groups to facilitate communication, empathy and unity. The horses are an integral part of every session and are the catalyst to opening up meaningful discussion and experiencing new ways to deal with life issues. Sessions can extend over a period of weeks or be a one-time event.

Stable Kids – Home-School and After-School Programs
Hours spent riding and caring for horses is time well spent and a terrific way to enhance your child’s educational experience and leadership skills. Horses are amazing at teaching math, science, environmental awareness and of course, there is lots of physical activity involved.
When you sign your child up for the 3-week program (2 hours per week) they will get up close and personal with a variety of horses from little Muffin to Big Damascus. Along the way, they will learn the basics of riding while playing Pony Club style games and develop lots of horse care and handling skills. Open to children 6 to 12 years old. Don’t be surprised if your child falls in love with a special horse and wants to come back again and again.
Thank you everyone for a great Stable Kids Program.
