Equestrian Camp, offered as both a one-week and two-week option, is for campers who love horses. The program focuses on all things related to horses including English riding lessons (up to 3 hours per day!), stable management, care and grooming of horses, methods of preparing for horse shows, trail rides throughout camp, and even taking the horses for a swim in the lake! All instruction is tailored to the skill level and specific needs of each camper from beginner (steering, post-trotting, basic pole-work, etc.) to more advanced (seat and position in canter, jumping, etc.). Equestrian Campers also have the opportunity to enjoy other great camp activities such as swimming, the zip line, evening programs, camp fires, arts & crafts, songs, skits and more!
Equestrian Campers work all week towards an end of week horse show performance. This takes places Saturday morning and is open for all parents and family to enjoy. Please be aware of this when planning transportation.

We also do fun arts and crafts and play games to help reinforce knowledge and concepts. Equestrian campers participate in chores daily such as giving hay and filling water, as well as some stall cleaning. Check out the sample schedule below for more information!
