Beginner Day Camp Activities 
Riders are provided with training in several different riding styles according to their preferences and ultimate goals.  Including, show jumping, dressage, hunt seat, cross country, western pleasure, reining and much more.

The riding instructors have been carefully selected to ensure they work effectively and kindly with the campers. During formal lessons, riding groups are small, personalized and grouped according to riding ability so no one is left out or left behind.

Riders come together for late afternoon fun rides, games, desensitization clinics, & friendly competitions.

We will be promoting youth responsibility, leadership, proper exercise, a healthy and active lifestyle, social skills, trust of animals, awareness and appreciation of horses and nature, and all of the hard work and dedication that goes into a farm and the animals that live there.

We take pride in providing a safe and fun filled summer!

Vaulting & Trick Riding Camp
ALL HORSES AND EQUIPMENT ARE PROVIDED!  
All Levels of Riders are Welcome.

An amazing opportunity to learn the disciplines of trick riding, bareback, vaulting, and Roman Riding.
 
We've all seen stunt riding in shows and movies but never knew how to get involved. There is a rare & dying art of trick and roman riding and you can now be part of the action here at Mahan Farm!
Students will learn from seasoned performers and trainers on experienced performance horses. Though seemingly difficult and rare, instructors will go through tricks in a step by step process.
 No experience is necessary, just a desire for fun and adventure! 


Trick riding and roman riding styles were developed for Russian Cossack battle. Cossacks learned different positions to fight while staying on a runaway horse. Today it is popular in rodeos and circuses.

Here students will walk through the basics and safety procedures as well as building tricks and trick routines throughout the week. At the end of the week students will perform their routines to music for friends and family to watch as they show off their new skills and techniques.
