Ruth Gilman, Program Director

Full day: July 11-15, Aug. 1-5,
Half-day: July 18-22, July 25 -29, Aug. 8-12.

At camp children will be encouraged to become confident, knowledgable riders who are able to relate and understand horses with gentle,patient, and caring attitude.  This will be learned by experiencing various horse activities that will work to build a solid foundation on horse knowledge.  Watch as your child grows by leaps and bounds during their week at camp with our small class sizes (6 half day students, 4 full day students).
