Camp programs for junior riders of any riding level who wish to improve their skills, strength, confidence and riding foundation. Our summer programs offer close personal attention in a small group setting with between 6 and 10 riders per session. Riding lessons are taught in ability-based groups. Students may bring their own horse or enjoy one of our farm-owned horses and ponies. Instruction takes place in one of our two riding arenas. Students receive quality instruction from trainer Colleen Seely who is active in the industry through coaching at AA and VHSA horse shows, as well as coaching a Zone 3 Interscholastic Equestrian Association teams. She is also an active USEF/USHJA/VHSA member and judges local VHSA horse shows.

This program is for junior riders ages 9-17 of any riding level who wish to improve their skills, strength, confidence and riding foundation. Each day is structured around riding and learning about barn management and horse care. Students ride twice daily in ability-based groups and practice their teamwork skills as they clean stalls, water, feed and turn out the horses. Additional educational opportunities are provided through mini-clinics that are built into their schedule and teach students important horsemanship skills that they can put into practice at the farm. A busy day requires down time and rest and we incorporate this into our program activities such as swimming and going out to lunch. We often spend our evenings together watching a movie or sitting by the campfire. We end each session with a equitation horse show to include a judge and ribbons, as well as invited in-house competition.
