Fountain Valley School of Colorado offers riders (or wanna-be-riders), ages 9-18, a unique opportunity to learn all the facets of western riding, gymkhana events, roping, trail rides and basic horsemanship; including grooming, saddling, stable management, horse care, feeding, and basic veterinary and farrier care. The camp is individualized and intensive due to the limited enrollment. All students will be under the training and supervision of the professional staff at Fountain Valley School. Indoor riding arena allows year-round riding!
Participants need to be dropped off daily at 9 a.m. and picked up promptly at 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Campers will be provided lunch and snacks. Campers should wear blue jeans, chaps or riding breeches; paddock boots or riding boots. NO TENNIS SHOES! Riding helmets with safety harnesses are always required; we have some to use. Campers should also bring a swimsuit and towel for an afternoon dip in the pool.
The camp fee includes daily riding lessons, lectures and demonstrations, crafts, lunch, swimming and T-shirt.
