The riding camp program caters to girls ages 5-16. It has been designed to build confidence, teach riding and horsemanship skills, instill respect for the environment, while encouraging new friendships with other girls who share the same interest.
To achieve these goals, our camp's daily schedule is built around riding lessons. These lessons address the physical aspect of riding, teaching the body how to sit, balance and use aids (signals given with legs, seat, hands and voice) to direct and communicate with the horse. As campers acquire riding skills, they come to understand how a horse's mind works and why he responds as he does.
Daily horseback riding is combined with swimming, tennis, arts and crafts, outdoor play, and nature exploration to ensure a well-rounded summer experience.
Campers can choose exciting activities such as cooking classes, ceramics, dance and performing arts, natural science hands on classes, and much more.
Also, they will learn about sustainable farming practices, such as organic gardening, water conservation, organic pest management, solar energy, wetlands, etc.
Healthy and organic lunch and snacks included in the tuition.
