Horse Club is an after-camp riding option for campers 1st – 6th grade enrolled in 2-Week Day Camp who want to learn or improve their riding skills and horsemanship.
Campers participate in 40-minute riding lessons, every Tuesday and Friday, after the camp day from 3:00-5:00pm. There are a total of four lessons over the 2-Week Day Camp session. After the lesson, campers are dropped off at one of our 10 after-camp central locations between 5:00-6:20pm (see below). The fee for transportation is included in Horse Club.
On the first day of Horse Club all campers have a safety orientation and ride check. Our instructors will evaluate each camper’s skill level and put them into their appropriate riding group for the remainder of the program:
- Intro Riding Group. For riders with limited horse experience. They will learn to ride independently and practice basic horsemanship skills.
- Group Lessons. For beginner to intermediate riders who want to improve their riding skills and horsemanship. Must be able to ride independently.
Date: Every Tuesday and Friday over the 2-week session
Includes: Four, 40-minute riding lessons, snack, and transportation
Requirements: Open to all campers enrolled in 2-Week Day Camp, 1st-6th Grade, who have the stamina and focus to participate in group lessons after camp.
Limited Availability: Spaces are limited. Please sign up early to reserve your spot.
