First Gait camps (Ages 7-15) Novice & Intermediate levels
July 15-19, 2013 & July 22-26, 2013 (9 am to 4 pm)
This camp is geared for beginner to intermediate riders and will include Equine Canada’s new “First Gait” program curriculum. We are exited to be offering the first Gait program as it is an excellent multi-disciplinary approach to teaching riding skills and athletics, transferable to all riding disciplines and sports. The program includes games, basic gymnastics skills, vaulting and riding. Our camp will go above and beyond the basics of the first gait program and include additional instruction on horse care, and riding lessons. Riders of a variety of levels will be accommodated by grouping students into smaller groups of similar riding skills.
We expect that our 2013 camps will be our best yet and are looking forward to offering a multidisciplinary and innovative curriculum combined with our more focused and traditional riding lessons. Our goal is always to provide a fun and safe learning environment that your kids will come home raving about!
Cost $350 plus HST / week (family discounts and multiple camp discounts available)

Eventing Camp (All ages)

Our eventing camp is a more competitive program, geared for riders who would like to work on their skills to successfully compete in eventing. Riders will learn and improve their skills in the 3 phases of eventing (dressage, show jumping, and cross country) as well as learn about the rules, horse show etiquette, care of the horse etc. Lesson levels will range from Pre-Entry (2’6”) and up. Riders must be able to ride securely on the flat and over a course of 2’6” to be eligible for camp. Participants will be grouped into groups of similar level and experience, and based on the level of competition they are preparing for.
