Saluki Equine Experience

If you have a child who loves horses, this camp is a great opportunity to learn all about them. Join members of the SIU Equine Science program for a fun-filled week learning about horses! Campers will get experience grooming and riding along with basic horse care and handling, not to mention equine crafts to take home.  

This camp is designed for introductory – intermediate exposure to horses and will be conducted by Samantha Wuest, SIU Equine Center Manager. All campers will receive a camp t-shirt and memories for a lifetime!
