Plans are underway for our 16th annual Hooves & Heroes open house and spring fundraiser. Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 22, from 11 am to 4 pm. This is the one opportunity each year for the public to visit our facility, and admission is free. The day will include lots of student riding demonstrations, fun activities for kids, and a silent auction, and lunch and beverages will be available to purchase.

Be sure to check out the Fall 2016 issue of our Camelot Chronicles newsletter, available online now. This issue’s feature article is “The Camelot Experience”, a moving testimonial by Camelot parent Beth Suarez about her son Diego’s experiences at Camelot, and how Camelot has not only positively affected how he perceives his disability, but how others perceive him. We also have “The Value of Volunteering” by 5-year volunteer Sharon Phillips, notice about upcoming events, an introduction to our newest 4-legged staff member, and lots more. (September 3, 2016)
Camelot’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through programs of horsemanship and outdoor education, which develop self-worth, independence, and active participation in the community.
What We Do
Since its inception in 1980, Camelot has offered one-on-one education, with instruction tailored to the individual needs of our students. Camelot specializes in serving riders with physical disabilities, and our students learn riding, driving, grooming, training, vet care, and stable management.
Camelot Ranch is located on 14.25 acres of the Sonoran Desert in the Pinnacle Peak area of Arizona. Our barrier-free, wheelchair-accessible facility makes it possible for students to saddle, ride, and groom our horses with minimal help.
The Camelot philosophy is that everyone faces personal dragons, yet every person is a potential dragon-slayer. The most intimidating obstacles can be vanquished with love and courage. Camelot provides the opportunity and support to succeed.
