Equestrian Programs

Equestrian Programs

Summer Campers may register for Horsemanship Lessons, 1/2 Day Horse Camp or Full Day Horse Camp for an additional fee.  Campers participating in any Equestrian program are required to wear long pants and shoes or boots with a c barn 7.30_resized½-1” heel.  Camp provides safety helmets but campers may bring their own riding helmet if they prefer.  Campers’ helmets will be inspected by the Ranch Director to be sure that they meet safety requirements.   An evaluation ride on the first day of the session determines placement of campers by experience.  Campers progress at their own pace.

Horsemanship Lessons: Consist of five one hour sessions taken as one of the campers’ coaching periods.  Campers are grouped by age and then experience.  The first lesson usually includes a skill level evaluation.  Four of the lessons are ring riding and one lesson is a trail ride, weather permitting.

½ Day & Full Day Horse Camp: Campers will participate in progressive riding lessons in English or Western styles, learn the basics and beyond of horse care, perform stable chores and learn teaching techniques by assisting with lessons for new riders. This program includes a special event such as an evening trail ride, gymkhana (mounted and unmounted games) or simulated horse show.
