Camp Information and details: 

Intermediate & Advanced Camps (9am - 4pm):

Intermediate Camp (Age 8 & up): This camp is for riders who have previous riding experience and are able to walk, trot and canter independently. Participants will have 2 rides per day, one ride will be a structured riding lesson, and the other will be a fun / relaxed ride. Participants in this camp should already have a strong interest in horses and want to spend the full day riding and learning horsemanship. 

Advanced Camp (Age 8 & up): This camp is designed for riders who have already developed a strong riding foundation and are able to canter and jump. This camp focuses more strongly on riding and horsemanship skills required to be competitive in the show ring. There will be 2 rides per day and lessons will focus on the skills required for the 3 phases of eventing: dressage, stadium jumping and cross-country. NOTE: Riders will need to have a cross country vest for the cross country jumping lessons. 

Intermediate and Advanced Camps include:

  • 2 Rides per day (one focused lesson & one fun ride)

Horse & Country Camps (9am - 4 pm):

This camp will focus on a variety of fun activities including 1 horse ride per day, learning about horses & care but will also incorporate other outdoor activities, games & crafts to appreciate the outdoors.  This camp is suitable for beginner riders as well as riders with more experience; participants will be grouped into groups of similar riding ability to get the most of the riding lessons. Campers will participate in a wide range of outdoor activities.

Camp includes:

  • Daily riding lessons 
  • Horsemanship lessons (caring for & learning about horses)

Our focus is on safety, fun and learning. Riding time will include traditional riding lessons as well as fun activities. Riders of a variety of levels will be accommodated by grouping students into smaller groups of similar riding skills.

Our goal is always to provide a fun and safe learning environment that your kids will come home raving about!
