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.
The 2016–2017 lesson season calendar is now online. Lessons start September 26, and we have some exciting events in the fall, including another wonderful desensitization clinic presented by the Scottsdale Police Mounted Unit on October 22, the annual fantastic Halloween party hosted by John & Sharon Ames at a date to be determined, and—of course—our Starry Knights fall fundraiser on October 29. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with the latest news. (June 17, 2016)
Hooves & Heroes 2016 has come and gone—and it was a fantastic day! Camelot thanks everyone who helped make the day a success, from our event sponsors and silent auction donors to our volunteers and students who worked so hard, and, of course, to everyone who showed up for the fun. You can view the photo album on our Facebook page. We hope to see you next year on Saturday, May 6 (and don’t forget Starry Knights, our fall fundraiser)! (May 9, 2016)

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.
