Horse camping Memorial Day!

Took my toddlers up horse camping for their first time they were good kids it was a lot to take in for them but each outing they get better and better!

We went to White Fish horse camp in Crescent, OR. It’s one of my favorites since you can ride to high lakes but you’ve got to time your trip between snow melt and misquotes. Great camping and the friendliest camp hosts ever!

Anyhow, some horse camping tips I found to make the trip most enjoyable are:

*Bring the doggo but string up a high line so they can move and not get wrapped up or trip you.

*weed free hay is the only feed allowed. I prefer alfalfa pellets. I bring a bucket for their pellets and soak them well so they don’t choke and it keeps them occupied for hours. It helps them stay hydrated too if they aren’t yet used to the water at camp.

*bring insect repellent for you and your animals, I had citronella bracelets and candles we had zero big issues.

*bring blankets for your horses at night it still gets cold no matter how warm the day is and bring more blankets for your bed too!

Have fun and be safe! Don’t push your horse if they seem overwhelmed, walk them around horse camp to see other camps that way they get a good feeling of their surroundings 🙂

I specialize in problem horses, youngsters, horse rehabilitation and achieving softness and a better relationship between horse and their rider. I not only train horses but humans as well. Not your typical riding lesson but I can, if you so choose, teach you to train your horse! I’m always available to help answer questions or share photos or videos upon request to better illustrate my advice. I’ve mastered the “don’t break the bank” way of keeping your horse healthy and cared for while on a budget. If you walk into almost any large barn in Oregon you’re bound to meet a horse I trained or sold! I’ve trained over 623 horses and counting! I post updates as I receive them from clients and buyers. Thank you for taking the time to browse and hopefully learn something new!
