Illusion Farm offers an equestrian day camp experience of a lifetime! Make lasting friends, learn about horse care, ride in daily lessons on our experienced horses and ponies, and join us on our camp trips to tour and attend different Illinois horse venues, including Tempel Farm Lipizzans, Arlington Park Racetrack, & Medieval Times! Beginner camp sessions are designed for students with no riding experience as well as novice riders who have skills that may include walking, trotting, cantering, and jumping small cross rails or fences. Intermediate/Advanced camp sessions are designed for students who are able to walk, trot, and canter with confidence and able to jump courses. Students are divided into groups within each session based on their experience and riding ability.
All students are taught horse safety and care and learn the proper methods for grooming, tacking, leading, and mounting. Students also learn the gaits important to English riding, proper position and balance, the correct use of posting diagonals, and how to ride in the two-point position. Emphasis is placed on establishing a balanced and secure seat, instilling confidence, and laying a foundation for further development. Other activities include lectures, instructional videos, games, and arts and crafts. All instruction is tailored to each camper’s existing skills and knowledge.
