Camp Information and details: 

Novice & Intermediate Camp (Age 7 & up) July 9th – 13th 2018

This camp will accommodate 2 levels: Riders with limited riding experience (some preferred) as well as intermediate riders with 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.  

 

Intermediate & Advanced Camp (Age 9 & up) July 16th – 20th 2018

This camp is designed for intermediate riders, who have already developed a strong riding foundation and are able to canter and jump a course, as well as advanced riders who have already started competing in derbies and horse trials. 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.
