Campers of all levels will improve their horsemanship and riding skills while making new friends who share their passion for horses.
Novice (Western): Campers will be introduced to horses and learn safety procedures around the barn. They will learn to groom, saddle and ride independently.
Intermediate (Western): Campers will quickly review Novice group skills before progressing to slightly more advanced horses and exercises. They will also learn to ride at a slightly faster pace and begin to refine control of the horse.
Advanced (English Over Fences): For campers who have mastered Intermediate skills and are ready to go over (or are already sailing over) fences.
All groups will learn about horses, saddles and bridles. As opportunities arise, campers will be able to help with farm chores, watch a horse get new shoes or see the veterinarian in action! Campers may be moved to a more suitable group at the discretion of the Camp Director.
In addition to everything equine, campers will enjoy hiking, tubing, games, an overnight campout (weather permitting), a dance on Friday night and more. Campers will perform a demonstration at 10am on Saturday morning. Camps take place July 17-23 and July 24-30.
