The camps are kept small to allow each participant to have a private lesson each day tailored to their abilities. The horse care and grooming is also tailored to the ability and skill level of the campers. More advanced grooming and clipping is available for those interested in learning about getting a horse ready to show. Lots of hands -on time with the horses is offered and campers can ride a second time during the day if they wish.
English and Western riding are both offered during the week. Lessons are taught in a 225x115 foot all-weather footing ring. Juming, barrels and poles are available for inermediate and advanced riders.
Safe, reliable school horses are used. These horses belong to the farm, they are not brought in just for the camps.
Campers need to bring a bagged lunch each day and can have any snacks they wish. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the barn. We also provide some snacks and water each day. Long pants must be worn while riding, campers can wear shorts when not riding. Shoes that lace or fasten are needed, no slip-on or open toed shoes or sandals around the horses. Riding helmets are available at the farm.
