Typical Day

Roughing It combines the quality instruction of a riding school with the fun of a real summer camp.

Camper Grouping

Camper’s skills are evaluated on the first day of camp and they placed into lesson groups based on their riding ability with other riders with similar skills and experience. Our qualified staff provides safe, fun and challenging instruction tailored to camper’s confidence, experience and skill level. We offer instruction for beginner through advanced riders.
