Top Horse camps in Alberta for 2024/2025

Horseback riding camps and sessions throughout the province

Below, find some of the premiere kids' horse camps in Alberta. Horseback riding camp is the experience of choice for many young girls (and boys, too). Kids will learn all different aspects of dressage, develop and explore a love of the outdoors, and in some cases, get a full Alberta ranch experience.

Weeklong sessions will involve overnight bunking, campfires, pranks and shared experiences that leave a positive lifelong impression. For girls, horse camp is an ideal way to develop leadership skills and increase self-confidence. They’ll build character and independence, and meet girls from throughout the province (and elsewhere) who share a love of horses. Best of all are the horseback adventures and daily trail riding.

    Finding the ideal horse camp in Alberta:

    Be sure to read our camp guide for more details, but here’s a quick look at some things to consider when researching:

    Be careful how you judge. The focus of the camp should be on safety and keeping things in good working order. The handling of the horses is a key factor to consider. As you tour camps, get a feel for how content the horses are; don't focus too heavily on superficial aspects such as cleanliness.  

    Look closely at camp specializations, especially since each camp offers a variety of sessions. Some camps or sessions will be focused on first-time riders, while others will focus on advanced learning and the development of equestrian skills. Note that camps are most often not restricted to horseback riding activities. Other activities including swimming, canoeing, arts and educational activities add variety to the camp experience. Get more professional advice on our horse camps page.

    Look province-wide. Here’s a hint for people from Edmonton and Calgary and other cities.  Alberta foothills camps can offer trail rides through valleys, rivers and canyons, giving kids a closeup experience of the majesty of the mountain scenery … all while on horseback.

    Understand the camp’s accreditation by the Alberta Camping Association (ACA). ACA member camps go through a Standards and Accreditation program, including a formal accreditation visit once every three years that covers all aspects of camp operations. The ACA represents organized summer and youth camps throughout the province, and accreditation can be helpful validation for parents. That said, many non-member camps also offer excellent safe and well-run programs that meet or exceed ACA standards.

    Learn more from the camps, and have a great adventure!
