Equestrian camps are a wonderful way for a child to discover the world of horses. Beginning Riding Camps cover an introduction to the horse, safety, horse care, grooming, saddling, and basic riding skills, with a different theme for each week. Intermediate camps are for the more experienced rider, and focus on a specific discipline or skills. Campers must be able to tack their own horse, ride independently, and trot comfortably on a loose rein. Horse and equipment are provided. Children should wear jeans and sturdy shoes. Cost for week-long camps is $225 per child. ½ day camps are $130/child. Campers must be at least 8 years old for all camps except the Tiny Tots Camp. Register early as space is limited.
