Novice Equestrian Horse Camp $499 - Weeks 3 & 6
This week is designed for riders with more experience and allows them to spend the bulk of their day at the Fair Haven stable. Unlike the other weeks, they will have the opportunity to ride in both the morning and afternoon session. Additional activities for this week may include jumping, dressage, and an overnight trail ride. The week will conclude with a horse show. Campers must be capable of independently grooming, tacking up, sitting trot and rising trot. Those registering must either be approved based upon prior year participation or must provide a completed questionnaire from a reputable riding stable attesting to their riding ability.
Cowboy/Cowgirls Camp $469 - Week 5
This week is all about western riding. In addition to natural horsemanship, campers will learn about in western horsemanship, showmanship, western pleasure, and trail class. As this week is open to students of all riding levels, trail riding will be appropriate to the level of ability demonstrated by the rider. Participation in the overnight trail ride is at the sole discretion of the Equestrian Director. Campers who do not attend the overnight trail ride will enjoy an overnight at Fair Haven Stables, which includes riding under the lights. The week concludes with a Gymkhana event.
