Safety is of Utmost Importance
Riders are assessed and put into groups of no more than 5 depending on their ability and experience. Our riding directors have developed a skills checklist that each rider is encouraged to make their way through. Once a skill is perfected they can move on to the next category of skills to ensure that each rider has a good foundation of riding skills before moving on to more advanced lessons. Weekly riding reports are provided so parents can keep track of their budding equestrian’s progress!
Our horses are hand-picked each year from our longtime partner Pond Hill Ranch. Each horse is chosen to make certain we have the steady beginners horses to the more advanced jumping horses. During the final week all the riders have a chance to perform in the horse show in front of their fellow campers with many ribbons to be won.
Stable management and horse healthcare are incorporated into the equestrian program. For those wanting to experience more in this area we allow campers to come down to stables to help take care of the horses and learn proper horse care.
