Nancy Slater offers you the opportunity to develop your horse into the horse of your dreams through Natural Horsemanship!  Anything is possible when the horse sees you as his leader, friend, and protector. Using techniques employed by great horsemen throughout time, a partnership between you and your horse is formed.  Nancy teaches how to get inside your horse's mind -- causing him to WANT to be with you, and giving you his best out of heart and desire! Adding to those tools is an incredible facility complete with riding trails, an arena containing obstacles and a round pen, and her one-of-a-kind, personally designed Cowboy Camp Obstacle Trail Park, all located in beautiful central Florida just minutes from Lake Wales. 

An Immersive Experience.....

LESSONS & TRAINING

Need lessons? Want to send your horse here for training?

Nancy Slater offers a range of teaching options including private and group lessons, video coaching, and on-site  clinics and workshops.  Choose what works for your learning style and where you are in your horsemanship journey! 
 

You can also send your horse to Nancy for training. However, her results will only continue to be effective if you are able to reinforce it! So her weekly horse training services include one-on-one coaching so that you can also learn what your horse has learned.

TRAIL RIDING, FISHING, KAYAKING & MORE

Explore thousands of acres of Florida wilderness on horseback, on foot or by boat

Nancy Slater's  Cowboy Camp is nestled among 100-yr old oaks in the heart of lake country. Miles of sandy trails wind through thousands of acres of pristine Florida scrub, wet prairie and saw palmetto flats.

 

Experienced riders can swim with their horses in Tiger Lake or travel through historic cattle ranches to the shores of nearby Lake Kissimmee!

Don't have a horse to work with? Try your hand at fishing by casting a line off of our dock or go for a paddle around the lake. Bring your own boat and put in at a nearby boat ramp for a day on the water.  

 

Don't like the water? Watch the local wildlife -- look for bald eagles, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and a variety of wading birds. Go for a hike or drive to nearby Lake Wales for shopping and sightseeing.  Visit Bok Tower Gardens or learn about 1876-era Florida cowboys at Lake Kissimmee State Park's "Cow Camp". The options are almost endless.

OBSTACLE PARK

Try your hand at one of nearly 100 obstacles in our Cowboy Camp Obstacle Trail Park

Nancy Slater's Natural Horsemanship Cowboy Camp and Obstacle Park offers a great learning environment! Expose your horse to all kinds of obstacles and find out exactly where the "holes" in their training are.

 

Challenge yourself to think outside the box and try to use each obstacle in different ways. The idea is to foster understanding, calmness and connectedness in your horse as you take your time breaking it down into steps they can understand at a relaxed pace they can handle.
