Children with any level of riding experience are welcome, from complete beginner to advanced rider. Campers will receive instruction on riding and the care and handling of horses, with an emphasis on safety, good horsemanship and having fun!
We have a number of seasoned, well-trained ponies and horses. Riders will be paired with horses according to their abilities and equestrian goals. For beginners the focus will be learning balance and building confidence, while more advanced riders will work on refining their riding and showing skills. Each day will also include games on horseback, instruction on riding equipment, horsey crafts and activities, and plenty of opportunity to groom and bond with our special horses.
Additional private instruction is available (for a fee) for any student wishing to extend and maximize their camp experience.
Campers should come dressed appropriately for the weather and riding; e.g. tapered jeans/pants or riding breeches, boots or a solid shoe with a low heel and flat sole (please, no cowboy boots). Please send a lunch with your child. Beverages and cookies will be provided. The outside activity will create ravenous appetites!
