Riding Camp

A real barn experience, this program focuses on responsible, considerate care of horses. Each rider is assigned to his or her horse for the week, resembling the responsibility and fun of horse ownership. Graduates of summer camp have moved into Pony Club and Olympic-level instruction. We offer quality ponies, pony club curriculum, a low student to instructor/assistant ratio in a park-like setting, with horse games and a horse show on the last day of camp. Kids must bring lunch. Ages 6 and up.

Discount: Valid only for one camper signing up for multiple sessions or a sibling discount in the amount of $20 off the second session.
