SUMMER

CAMP

Each year, our Riding School offers Summer Riding Day Camp for children ages six (6) and older. Beginner and intermediate riders enjoy an hour of instructed riding each day, horse related crafts and games, learning proper horse care, and stable management. Camp begins promptly at 9:00am (no earlier drop off please) and ends each day at 1:00pm Monday through Thursday. Camp runs June through August - see our summer 2021 dates below:
