Camp Cost
$275 / week if registered during early registration
$325 / week after early registration

There is a $25 discount for each subsequent week or sibling.

Riding lessons will be in small groups, according to ability, for an hour each day. Beginners can expect to learn to control the horse at the walk, and begin to trot, post, and ride in 2-point position. More advanced riders will work on equitation and jumping.

While the morning hours at camp will be devoted to horses, the afternoons will be fun- filled with games, crafts, board games and sports.

Barn activity is a time for the children to learn about horsemanship. Throughout the week we will learn about horse safety, the parts of the horse, colors, brainding the mane and tail, cleaning & caring for tack and about the upper levels of riding.
