Camps

Equestrian Horsemanship 

Our equestrian day camps are for ages 5 to 14. Running for 5 hours five days a week, the riding camps are for groups of up to ten students with one instructor and two camp assistants. Students will need to bring their own lunch

Each student has his or her own horse for the week. Students will learn the fundamentals of horsemanship, safety and riding skills. Grooming, tacking, arena work, trail riding, bathing and a horse show on Friday are all part of the curriculum.

Level 1 - 
This camp is for beginners with little or no riding experience. Students will learn the basics of handling, grooming, tacking up and riding at the walk and trot. Students may repeat Level 1 (or take additional private lessons) until they are ready for Level 2. Morning session 9AM-2PM.

Level 2 - Offered in late summer
This camp is a continuation of Level 1 and is intended for beginner riders with some experience and confidence under their belts. To qualify for this level, students should be able to fully control their horse at the walk and be comfortable at the trot. When students are fully in control at the trot they will begin learning how to lope/canter. Morning session 9AM-2PM.

  • Dates for this camp are not yet available. 

 

What to Wear - 

  • All visitors should wear long pants and close-toed shoes. Wear sensible clothing that you won’t mind getting a little dusty. We don’t recommend hiking boots because they tend to get caught in the stirrups.
  • Helmets are mandatory for all riders under the age of 18 and are strongly recommended for those 18 and older. Helmets are provided free of charge. Riders may bring their own certified riding helmet if they wish
