If the child attends a long camp running into several weeks, he may be taught advanced horsemanship techniques. It also depends on the age of the child and his willingness to learn the things. It would help to talk with the organizers beforehand about the things they are going to teach to the kids in the camp.

The mare whickered softly, a sound of patience and happiness as she quietly ambled along behind the farmer and her excited colt. She could feel how tightly he was wound – ready to spring and bolt and buck and run. Ready to test out his legs and investigate the wondrous new world that had just been revealed to him.
