Equestrian Camp: June 1-3
The daily three-hour equestrian camp, open to all students eight years and older, offers a diverse training regimen designed to create a working knowledge of the aids and mechanics involved when riding English, as well as proper grooming and tacking procedures. Instruction will encourage students to enhance and challenge their existing equestrian knowledge, or, for beginners, learn stable management and basic riding skills. Fee: $75 per day.

A weekly two-hour “Friday Riding Program” also will be open to students eight years and older. During the summer, the riding program runs from 3 to 5 p.m., although the time might vary.
