What will participants learn?

At riding club, kids will learn to ride and enjoy horses safely with the supervision of a trained riding instructor. Each week they will enjoy activities of their choosing such as mounted games and trail rides. They will also learn all about horses through other activities such as crafts, worksheets, and even painting their horse. Club members may choose their own horse at their ability level with instructor approval though they may change horses to learn new skills.

Who qualifies to participate?

The Beginner/Novice class is for riders who have never ridden a horse as well as those who have ridden quite a bit and can control their horse at the trot, but do not have experience at the canter. The Intermediate/Advanced class is for riders who are gaining experience at the canter, as well as those who are proficient at the canter and have the ability to use their aids independently to follow instructions for more complex maneuvers. This program is participant-focused and does not have a rigidly structured curriculum, so any child can participate at their appropriate level multiple times until he or she has the necessary skills to advance.

What else do you need to bring?

All riders are required to wear camp-provided helmets as well as their own long pants and sturdy closed-toe shoes with a smooth sole.

It’s an opportunity to make new friends, to have a break from technology. It’s the first real chance I’ve had to be responsible and independent.
