No matter your skill or experience level all horseback riders can have a blast in our Horseback Riding camp. On Monday campers are divided up into different groups based on their skill level. From there campers are teamed up with a horse to build a relationship for the rest of the week. Each day is comprised of fun-filled games, challenges, and horse education both on and off the horse. Most of the campers time is spent on the Calleva farm but there is option to splash around in the creek or pond to cool off on those steamy days. On Thursday and Friday the horseback riding will spend the night camping out under the stars. Every Friday the Horseback Riding camp has some sort of competition or showing event for the campers as a culmination of their week.
The Horseback Riding camp has a progressive three level program to allow campers to build skills from week to week. Within each level of the horseback riding program campers will be pushed to challenge themselves to build their skills and confidence in and out of the saddle.
