Our KMT Riding Academy mini camps are filled with horsemanship, horseback riding, and fun! Our goal is for the Girl Scouts to truly learn what it takes to take care for and ride a horse. 

 

Each mini camp will be customized to each size troop in regards to timeframe. Contact Ashleigh Culiver for more information on booking your very own mini camp!
