The NCTC Equine Department will host mini summer camps this June to teach children how to ride horses, and registration is now open.

The camps are designed for children ages 8 to 15, and cost $175 a session.

The camps offered are:

In addition to learning to ride, students will learn about horse theory, parts of the horse, parts of the saddle and equine nutrition.
