Avo Kiviranna will be demonstrating the silent language of the horse. Commonly known as horse whispering, it’s a language that requires thousands of hours of practice to reach proficiency. It’s a way of communicating so subtle that it must be “felt.”
“The horse, because it’s a prey animal, will instinctively scrutinize you,” Kiviranna says. “Because he wants to know what you are thinking, and the only way you can let him know what you’re thinking is through your body language.”
All campers are to wear protective head gear at all times while riding.
Boomer’s Landing summer camp offers a wonderful opportunity for all levels of riders to define and achieve their personal riding goals. Be it one week, all summer, overnights, daytime or just a few hours a day, you choose the schedule that works best for you. Camp rates are the same as child care at Boomer's Landing. For overnights, there is no charge.

Amanda Hawkins is owner and camp coordinator at Boomer's Landing and will be leading the children in their equestrian adventure.
Experiences your child will hold dear for a lifetime
At Boomer's Landing, the emphasis is on fun; but, also, responsibility. Children will develop proper and safe care and grooming skills between rides while learning appropriate tacking techniques to insure a happy horse and a safe riding experience.
Dr. Janice Holland will be teaching the children equestrian anatomy through a fun game of paint the horse. She'll also instruct on the topic of forages engaging the children in soil testing and the importance of grass and legume identification.
Dr. Holland is a professor at Midway College and routinely writes for equine magazines such as Dressage Today and The Horse. She has also been a peer reviewer for journals such as Livestock Science and Journal of Equine Veterinary Science.
