    "Summer camp at Windswept Horse Farm was my daughters favorite. Windswept coowner and camp director, Tina Mauss, has created a safe, engaging environment where my daughter learned horsemanship, riding and horse care. Since the riding lessons are customized to each childs ability and experience, this is a great camp for all riders beginner, intermediate, and experienced. This camp fueled my daughters passion for horses. Every day when I picked her up, I found a tired yet happy camper. My daughter attended Windswept summer camp several years. In general, more girls than boys ride horses. If you have a boy, contact Tina to learn which weeks other boys will be attending camp. That said, my eightyearold nephew who lives in another state attended last summer and had a blast. The smile on his face, when he was on his horse, was huge. "

    "Elsa our 7 year old was just dipping her toes into the horseback riding water this summer. She tells me that it really teached one how to learn to do different trots and styles of riding. She says that the best part about it is that it was reallly fun. Mom and Dad liked the director who was laid back, but informative. Easily reached in Williston off of I89, made it a viable option for two working parents to transport to and from with a little help from grandma. The camp is coed, but the week that Elsa was signed up, there did not seem to be a boy in sight althought the director mentioned that there were several the week before. So if your son wants to go and is looking to pal around with some other boys, you may want to inquire about the enrollment beforehand."

    "If you like horses, you'll love Windswept. This summer let your kids have fun horsing around at Winswept Farm. Family owned and operated by the Mauss Family, this is the perfect place for your kids to have fun in the summer. Week long camp sessions from 900300 will guarantee a great day. I've been going to this camp for 2 years and I'm still having fun. No other horse camp can compare with this one. Once a day you ride, groom your horse, learn everything equine, and some days go on a field trip. Father note Tina is extremely knowledgable and is very patient with students of all abilities, she has numerous horses to fit to your riders level."
