CAMP DAY

The camp day runs from 9am - 12pm. Each student receives at least 20 minutes of riding instruction per day. All beginner riders have private instruction. Campers will learn to groom, tack up and help with the daily care of the horses. Topics to be covered include parts of the horse, equipment used, health care of the horse, breeds, colors and markings and general nutrition of the horse. All campers will learn how to properly show a horse in hand. For the more advanced riders, campers will cover the basics of dressage, have the opportunity to ride bareback and participate in a game day on horseback. Horse crafts will also be available for campers to participate in. On the final day of the camp week, a Parents Day will be held for campers to show their parents what they have learned.
