”Scott & Staff
I had a wonderful, stress free knowledgeable & fun time at Canyonview. As a parent and girl scout helper this was the best. We didn't have to plan or do anything except what you guys told us to do. We got to focus on our kids faces which had a constant smile on them. The girls learned a lot in a very short time and had a really great time doing it. Even mucking the stalls. We all felt safe & at home with your camp & staff. My girls and I hope to come back to one of your other horse camps again. Thank you all for our best experience we have ever had at camp."
