Summer horseback riding camps at KJM include riding lessons, trail rides, mounted drills, stable management, horse care and good camaraderie. Horse-oriented videos and other educational materials are also part of the curriculum.
Individualized instruction in all aspects of English horsemanship is emphasized along with stable management, horse care and animal safety. Our program encourages sportsmanship, cooperation and responsibility to the needs of others – both human and equine.
Safety on and around horses is a major objective of our riding program and our instructors are well versed in educating the novice rider. KJM school horses have had many years of experience, safely teaching young students to ride.
KJM is well designed for the summer camp program and conveniently located in south Tulsa. We have three large arenas, a training round pen, plus shaded, open riding areas. KJM is a working stable where campers can view experienced riders or trainers working horses, observe veterinary procedures or watch the farrier forge and shoe a horse.
Summer camp is held Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Parents or guardians are asked to sign campers in when dropping off and sign out when picking them up at days' end. Campers need to bring a sack lunch and drinks. A refillable water jug or bottle is advisable as temperatures usually increase throughout the day. Long pants and sturdy shoes or boots are recommended for riding. Most campers like to bring shorts to change into during the afternoon heat. White or light colored cotton shirts are always best for heat-related activities. Camp is held every day even if it rains, as there are plenty of horse-related activities that can be enjoyed inside the barn.
We invite you to call for an appointment to see our facility and meet our staff. Our riding school is conveniently located in South Tulsa on Sheridan Road, just south of the Creek Turnpike. We encourage you to apply early to ensure a space in our popular summer camp.
No camp is held July 1 – July 5
