This Camp may be combined with a Regular Half Day session to make a full day of camp.
Campers will be matched to a horse according to their existing riding skills. For the more advanced riders, this camp will increase
existing jumping skills through balanced flat work including dressage, jumping grids and gymnastic lines. It will also improve their
skills at jumping courses. They will also learn the differences in Hunters and Jumpers. Proper horse and rider turnout will be
covered as well. This camp will include topics such as Ground lessons, Horsemanship, Caring for tack, Trailer loading and 1st aid for horses.
Pre- jumping campers will learn the basics of jumping with ground pole work and improving those skills throughout the week. They will also
learn the fundamentals of bending and flexing the horse through basic dressage work. This camp will have a "virtual " horse show. Particpants will be emailed the link for viewing.
If the camp session you wish to enroll in is full, you can be put on a wait list by emailing the office with your contact information, your childs name, age and the week(s) you want to be wait listed for.
