The camps are limited to 6 participants per week. The weeks are divided by the riders ability to make sure we keep everyone safe while teaching new skills. Riders may also be divided again within a week to ensure we are challenging everyone.
Beginner/Intermediate Beginner – These weeks are for those who are completely new to horseback riding as well as those who may only ride for a week once a year and still need assistance at the trot.
Intermediate/Advanced Intermediate – These riders will range from those learning to canter and jump cross rails to those who are comfortable jumping a small course in the arena and have had some experience riding outside of the arena.
Advanced – This week involves riding in the fields at the farm as well as trailering off the farm for fun trail rides, cross country schooling and to a lake for an opportunity to paddle and even swim with the horses!
Eventing – with Mary Macklin. This week’s focus is on the three disciplines that make up an event – dressage, x country and stadium jumping. Riders from the Beginner Novice level on up are welcome. Mary will go into detail about the requirements for each level, the fitness required for horse and rider and how to prepare for a competition. There will be plenty of fun and games as well!
