Monarch stables is pleased to welcome children of all riding levels to our Summer Riding Camp and After School Caterpillar Club. What is more fun for a child than spending their summer or after school activities caring for and riding horses? Our campers and caterpillars will enjoy engaging outdoor activities in the company of our experienced lesson horses and ponies and qualified adult camp leaders and counselors.
All participants will receive daily riding and horsemanship instruction. They will learn how to work with and handle horses, and the responsibility and dedication that comes with true horsemanship.
No prior riding experience is necessary. Girls and boys ages 6-14 years old are welcome. Children will be taught in groups based on their riding skill level, and all riders will receive individual instruction to improve their riding.
Monarch’s facility is a 56 acres equine oasis located only 13 miles from downtown Austin. Grassy rolling hills slope to tree-lined Onion Creek affording opportunities for our camp kids to fish and swim in the creek.
We do offer van service from Westlake area.
Our campers and caterpillars will enjoy working with our horses in our large, breezy barns, and our covered arena will keep us out of the sun for riding time. There is a large airconditioned/heated space for lunch and crafting and taking a break in the hottest part of the Austin Summer days or the coolest part of the Austin Winter.
