  • Description - Thomas School Of Horsemanship

    Thomas School of Horsemanship was founded in 1943 by Bill and Fran Thomas, and in 1950, they purchased and developed a stretch of potato fields in Melville. From those humble beginnings their dream was realized: A place where families can enjoy all the gifts that horses have to offer, a place where children can spend their summers riding, playing, learning, and growing, and a place for a supportive community to share in the joys of horsemanship.''This is where our roots are, this is where we became who we are.''Camp Alumni, Mike Martuscello, 1969 Today, Thomas School continues to be family owned and operated by Nancy Thomas, daughter of Bill and Fran. For over 65 years, Thomas School has given thousands of children experiences and friendships that they cherish for a lifetime.''My best friends today are the friends I made at Thomas School.''Camp Alumni, Katie Rimmer, 1996. The gifts that horses have to offer: Caring for a horse creates a sense of Responsibility. Interacting with a living being teaches Respect. Creating a bond with a kind, gentle creature shows Compassion. Being in control of an animal larger than yourself grants Confidence. And the shared love for horses builds Friendships that last. This is why our motto for 65 years has been:Let Horses Bring Out the Best in You. Although we offer a full day camp experience, our specialty has always been our complete riding program. Every camper enjoys a daily riding lesson with one of our Horsemanship Safety Association Certified Instructors.

      As a working, single mom I was quick to assume that sending my little ladies to camp of any kind was out of my budget. However, after a little internet research, I learned I had funding options. . . . more
