Horsemaster Program

Horsemasters Junior

Campers with little to no horse experience will receive an excellent introduction to horses and riding. Under the instruction of our qualified wranglers, riders will learn how to work with a horse both on the ground and in the saddle. Campers will experience how to groom and tack a horse, as well as learn basic riding techniques of controlling and steering a horse at a walk. Riding will occur in the arena and on the trail. Campers will spend their mornings at the barn and then participate in afternoon and evening camp activities with their cabinmates. A horse show on closing day will allow riders to show their new skills to friends and family.
