Two sessions will be offered during winter break and are geared towards ages 5-10 with campers divided into age groups. Each day, campers will groom, tack up/down, and ride our lesson horses. In the event of rain, we will work with horses in our covered cross tie areas and in the indoor barn aisle. In the event that weather precludes riding, certificates will be given to ride in our Saturday (2pm-4pm) Pleasure Riding Program or in a scheduled group lesson.
Riding instruction will be in the English style. However, we do have a number of Western saddles if campers prefer. Focus will be on equitation as the most effective way to ride and will stress proper use of hands, legs, and body position. We have a variety of wonderful horses and ponies that know their job and are used to working with children.
