Classes for Beginners $125  5 - 8 yrs (one morning class/day) Youth $250 nine & up (2 groups/day; ride 2X/day) and Adults $175 (one evening class/day) Beginners, who want to ride for an hour, start at 9 a.m. and are welcome to come just for their class and then leave.  Riders in the other sessions will have one practical class in the morning and another fun class after lunch.  These riders need to bring a bag lunch and plenty to drink.  Just Startin' is for those who have minimal riding experience—these sessions provide an opportunity to interact with horses and ride (with a Helper for younger children to ensure safety). The Rookie class is for riders who have had previous riding lessons or equivalent. We have a Just Startin’ Riding class in the evening (7-8:30 p.m.) for adults who would like to learn more about horses and ride.

This camp will have two instructors and will be broken into two 3-day intense learning session.  The first 3 days will be English Riding--Dressage, Hunter & Jumper; second 3 days Western Riding--cattle work, obstacles, trail riding.  Classes for Rookies, who have had previous riding lessons or equivalent, will stress improving the rider's balance and confidence on a horse.  Novice & Intermediate riders will prepare their horses on their own (may use their own horse if suitable) and ride English July 20-22 and Western July 23-25 to improve horsemanship skills, gain confidence and build a larger skill set. R, N & I classes $350/6 days will ride 2X/day; $180/3 days. Riding should be fun... so Hunter courses, cow work,  games, hunts and Trail challenges will be held in the afternoons. The evening class (7-8:30 p.m.) for Adults $200/6 days; $105/3 days will have theoretical as well as practical aspects.  This class can be tailored to the participants requirements: choose from either discipline and different levels of proficiency.  Participants will choose between lesson and trail ride for Saturday evening.
