Chastain Horse Park in Buckhead has summer camps. The summer camps are open to kids ages 4 through 14, from beginners to advanced. The camps include activities like grooming and tacking horses, bareback riding and learning about horses in general. Check out the information about the camps on the Chastain website.
Chastain is a nonprofit because everything from its summer camps and other programs benefits their therapeutic riding and hippotherapy program. These programs can help those with a variety of disabilities including ADD, autism, cerebral palsy, brain injuries and Down syndrome, just to name a few.
They have openings in the therapeutic program, and there are scholarships available. They also are constantly in need of horse donations and volunteers to help with the therapeutic lessons, and have regular lesson programs as well.
