Lost Creek Ranch Camp Confidence
November 16, 2013

Simply the best horse camp experience hands down! Campers are assigned their own horse for a week and learn everything from haltering, grooming, saddling, safe handling on the ground to the basics of riding. Campers ride twice a day, help feed and care for the horses, work in "chore teams" learning everything it takes to care for horses. Councelors are experienced horse professionals- many of them students majoring in pre vet and equine studies at the University of WI River Falls which is inspiring to the young campers. Another favorite is having the farrier (horse hoof care specialist) doing a shoeing demo for the girls- they learn so much!

Riding lessons 2x/day (indoor and outdoor arenas), an awesome selection of horses for all levels and abilities, hot afternoons spent at the local pool, evenings around the campfire and watching horse movies projected lifesize on the arena walls are just a few camp favorites!

Lynette Weldon has been running Camp Confidnce for over 12 years and loves working one on one with the campers building their confidence and fostering a lifelong love of horses. Her staff are professionally trained, comitted to the best care of the campers and horses and above all enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and passion for all things horse.
