Video Collection

A video from 2013 demonstrating what goes on at the Owl Canyon Horse Summer Camp program for kids. Enjoy!



A brief overview of what we do at summer camps.

Kate is instructing a riding lesson with a student that has been working with her since June of 2010. In this video, she has her student ride with a bareback pad to work on using leg pressure to direct the horses movement. The energy level of the student is also important to increase and decrease forward and backward movement of the horse. She asks her student to lower or raise their energy to the appropriate level so that the horse will move into the desired speed.

Ben is a 22 year old Arabian gelding. He responds to verbal ques "Walk" "Trot" "Whoa" and others; so Kate had told her student that "W" means to walk and "X" means to halt.


Kate is instructing a student bareback. This is the students first time riding this horse bareback. The student has been with OCHS since June of 2010. In this brief clip, Kate works with the student on balance, the use of leg pressure without using the reins, leg placement, relaxation, and getting forward movement from the horse.
