    Overview

    Have you always wanted to own your own horse? Try adopting one for a week or two instead.  Girls ages 10-18 are invited to attend a special riding camp  teaching classical horsemanship in dressage, riding over fences, and/or western pleasure.  Riders at all levels of experience are welcome.

    You may bring your own horse, for no additional charge, or you will adopt a horse for your stay and will be responsible for his care, for cooling him off with a hose bath, for giving him a vacation on a trail ride, and for schooling him in the ring.

    The camp schedule includes a short ride after check-in the first evening, twice daily riding lessons Monday through Thursday and a final lesson on Friday morning.  Lessons may also be supplemented by trail rides, and/or dismounted lessons.  Unlike the traditional rustic camp, you will be living in college dorms, feasting in the college dining hall, and swimming in the school's indoor pool. A van will bring you up to the equestrian center in the morning and will return you to campus for activities such as swimming, ropes course initiatives & games, scavenger hunts, crafts and more.  

    Camp staff include CHA certified instructor and counselors who are committed Christians and who will strive to make your stay a great one.

    Prospective students and incoming freshman that want to get a head start on their riding education are welcome to join us for camp as well.
