Summer Camps!

Each summer and throughout the school year, we offer a great camp series.  Please visit our Calendar page for camp dates.  Camps include lots of riding, arts & crafts, horse care & management, and more for ages 7-14!  Join us for horse camp and give your child the gift of memories that will last a lifetime!  Please email us for camp dates, pricing and availability, and check out our camp video on the Calendar page.

Birthday Parties!

We love to help you celebrate your children's milestones!  We offer horseback riding birthday experiences for children ages 7+.  Your birthday party at Horse Sense gives you a 90 minute riding lesson and party games on horseback session for 4-5 friends depending on age and ability.  Add mini horse painting for a small fee!  A table can also be set up outdoors on nice days or in our small barn on rainy or wintery days for cake, gifts and games for a small facility fee.  Partiers are responsible for their own food, refreshments and decorations.   ***Currently, our weekend schedule in Damascus is SO full that weekends are booked 2 months out.  If you hope to schedule a birthday at Horse Sense East, you'll need to plan at least 60 days ahead.    Gaston location can usually accommodate a birthday with 2-3 weeks advance planning. 

Scouts and Other Groups

Horse Sense Riding School is an approved outfitter for the Girl Scouts of America.  We offer learning opportunities for Scouts and other small groups, usually in the form of a mini day camp.  Mini camp is a 3-4 hour session that includes riding, grooming, and hands-on instruction and guidance on equine care and management.  Pricing varies by group size, interests and staffing needs. 

Mobile Mini's

Our mini's are mobile and they LOVE to party!   Our mini horses are available for birthdays, weddings, store events, nursing homes and other important events.  They also LOVE to visit your Zoom calls and classes!  Email for a quote today!
