The Equestrian Camp is a full-day Hunter/Jumper style program for girls who LOVE horses.

Campers are matched with a horse or pony for their entire session allowing them to connect and progress together.Campers are housed by age, but are placed in riding groups based on experience and ability. All levels are welcome, from girls who have never been on a horse to those that have been riding their entire lives.

Riding campers ride twice daily between ring lessons which focus on the fundamentals of horse and rider, and afternoon fun lessons which encourage relaxed enjoyment of their equine friends. Fun lessons include trail rides, playing games on horseback, and even taking some of our water-loving horses to the river! No horse crazy girl's day would be complete without rolling up their sleeves and getting a little dirty! Ample time for grooming, tacking, untacking and barn chores are included in the day. Our campers take great pride in caring for their horses and ponies.
