April 1st, 2014 Edit
Once again Darenth Farm is pleased to offer Summer Riding Camps. The weeks are dedicated to different riding abilities to make sure that each camper has the best possible experience and the chance to learn and play in a comfortable but challenging environment.
Experienced Riders are invited to join our Eventing Week taught by Advanced level event rider Mary Macklin and/or a general camp for experienced riders where we will incorporate trail riding, jumping and ring work taught by Sharon Dawson.
The Advanced beginner/ Intermediate weeks are for those riders who are at least ready to learn to canter and jump plus those who are still working on those skills.
The Beginner weeks are for those who only have the opportunity to ride once a year and for those who have never ridden. With safety always in mind we will help our new riders with many new skills and start a love affair with horses!
All campers will ride twice a day and get the chance to swim at lunchtime in our pool.
Please see below for dates.
Mary Macklin is holding an Eventing Camp June 23rd with lots of top class training and advice for our experienced riders. Cost for that week will be $470. Any questions about the format for that week, please contact Mary directly at 301 706 4796.
I plan to have a week for experienced riders also July 21st. We will ride in the fields and on the trails, ride bareback, play games and take a trip to Corduras Park to ride into the lake and splash (maybe swim) with our horses! Cost $375.
Advanced Beginners/ Intermediate riders June 16 and Aug 11th Cost $350 per week Riders able to trot unaided up to those learning to canter and jump.
Beginner 4 day June 30th Cost $280
Beginner 5 day July 28 and Aug 18th Cost $350 per week

Any questions please contact Sharon at 301 471 1254.
I am looking forward to another wonderful summer.
