Black Mustang Ranch offers very unique equestrian wilderness and endurance camps 
(day or residential) for kids ages 9 to 11 and 12 to 17. 
Weekly groups are small. From 6 to 8 girls max. 

All you will do for 5 days is … RIDE, RIDE AND RIDE!

We will visit different parks, up and down hills, crossing creeks, jumping trees, camp-out under the stars, and learn all we need to know in the wilderness. How to choose the right trails in a fun and safe way, for both you and your horse 
and many other skills you don’t want to miss.

If this sounds like fun and you think you’ve got the strength to complete it , then send us an email (click below) to request session information for the camp of your interest.

FEEDBACK FROM OUR CAMPERS’ PARENTS =)



Dwight - June 2014

"The most impressive thing was talking to one of the kids, in-fact the boy with the hat. His mother said he came home each day absolutely exhausted, and even fell asleep hunched over the ottoman. I asked him if he liked horse camp. He replied yes. I asked what his favorite part was, he said, "The riding". I then asked, "Was it worth riding a couple of hours a day with all the work you had to do with the horses, feeding, brushing, shoveling stalls, and tending to the horses needs?" He said, "Ohhhhh Yes". Then I asked him if he missed anything at home or would have rather done at home verses being at horse camp, he replied, "Nothing, I would have given up everything at home to be at horse camp!" Good Job Black Mustang Ranch"
