Trotting and Trail Rides!

EQUESTRIAN PROGRAM

If you love horses, the equestrian program is designed for you! As Equestrians, campers will participate in daily ground lessons encompassing horse care, riding techniques, and safety precautions. One ground lesson may include a special presentation from the vet and farrier to teach the girls even more about the care of horses. Equestrian campers will receive riding lessons from our experienced staff and take the horses out on trail rides. The program will progress in difficulty throughout the two weeks, enabling campers to learn basic skills that build to more advanced knowledge. The highlight of the two weeks is an overnight at Scheck’s State Forest Campground where the girls will spend a night camping along the river. In addition either side of this exciting overnight, the girls will visit nearby Ranch Rudulf for an afternoon and a morning two-hour trail ride through the woods and along the river. 


Campers do not need previous experience with horseback riding. Each camper will have lessons scheduled to suit their individual riding abilities and needs.


SPECIAL EQUIPMENT

Equestrian campers must wear a helmet while riding. Camp provides helmets for a $5 rental fee for the whole two weeks. Campers must bring long pants or jeans for riding and riding boots with a 1/4 inch heel. Camp has a supply of riding boots in a variety of sizes that are provided free of cost to riders who don’t bring their own.  


TRIP LOCATION

Sheck’s State Forest Campground is located on the Boardman River, only a 10 minute drive from camp. For more information about the location of the trip, check out the Scheck’s State Forest Horse Campground website.
