HHlogoTinyHooves & 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.
