Summer camp activities in GSA
How to Groom a Horse Fun!
Horse grooming helps your horse maintain a healthy hair coat and skin, but this activity can also be a fun and engaging way to help your children learn more about the HORSES. Kids can learn different things about horse grooming. They can learn the basic horse terminology and equine words, horse colors and markings, types of saddles such as the English, and learning about how to clean the leather equipment. They learn how to groom horses or ponies by using different types of brushes to smooth down the hair, and gently comb the horse's mane and tail. They can also watch how the instructor picks the horse feet and thoroughly clean them.
Equine Nutrition and Feeding
Our summer camp instructors also teach your child how to properly feed a horse and what the horse may need for good nutrition and health. The feed tag can provide essential feeding information about what's in the bag. However, some horse owners may not have the time to read this information or understand it. This is why instructors can always help with teaching common guidelines to observe when feeding a horse including the basic nutrients a horse might need such as water, protein, fat, carbohydrate, minerals, and vitamins. Since the nutritional requirements can vary from horse to horse, assessing the feed tag may be necessary in order to determine if the feed can meet your horse's needs.
Learning about Farm Maintenance
Farm shores can be a great way for your children to get involved with horses and horse care at an early age. Helping around the farm can help them learn how to be responsible and also learn new practical skills they may be able to use in the future. Since kids don't spend much time outside these days, this can be a great time for them to explore the outside world and keep their young minds and bodies active and healthy.
