SUMMER CAMPS (Cancelled for 2020)
We have made the difficult decision not to run our camps this year due to Covid19 restrictions
July 13 - 17th - Advanced / Intermediate camp
For riders who are comfortable riding at the trot and canter and performing courses of small jumps 2'0" & up
July 20 - 24th - Novice Camp
For riders who have a base of horse riding experience but are not jumping courses yet. Riders must be able to ride independently at the walk and trot and have at least an introduction to canter, may or may not have started jumping (this will be taught during camp)
July 27-31 - Beginner camp
For riders with minimal riding experience, both complete beginners or those who have completed introductory lessons or our beginner programs.
All of our riding camps will have one riding lesson per day and many days a second "fun" ride. Students will receive horsemanship lessons to learn proper horse care and management as well as refining and improving riding skills. Fun activities and "cool down" activities may include arts and crafts, treasure hunts, quizzes, etc. Our goal is to provide campers with a fun and positive experience where they gain confidence and skills in their equestrian pursuits.
A typical camp day:
Morning: Riding lessons, snack break, horsemanship lesson
Afternoon: Game or craft, snack, fun ride.
