2016 Summer Horseback Riding Day-Camp
About our Summer Riding Program
Contry Hill Farm offers full or half day co-ed English summer riding camps. At the farm, we teach children, ages 5 and up, of all riding levels. Summer camp participants will learn all aspects of horse care, including grooming & cleaning, feeding, and basic tack care. In daily riding lessons, students will be able to participate in trail rides, mounted games, bareback riding, and jumping at the instructor’s discretion. At the end of the summer, all campers are welcome to participate in our fun horse show on August 30th.
Campers are welcome to bring their own horse or pony, or they’re welcome to use one of the farm’s. Those who bring their own horse or pony will receive a stall for the week and a small individual turn-out pasture. Campers typically bring their own hay and feed. Those who wish to ride a school horse are assessed either before camp or on the first day of camp. A school horse is assigned to each camper for the majority of the week
At Contry Hill Farm, we put an emphasis on safety and fun; having only qualified instructors. We offer a minimum 3:1 student to teacher ratio to ensure every child gets the most out of every lesson. Compared to other summer camp riding programs, campers get more one on one instruction, they spend every hour in the barn, and they spend most of their time at the farm riding.
Safety is essential, so Contry Hill Farm requires that campers dress accordingly. Required attire: Long pants or breeches for riding, a closed-toed flat-soled shoe with a heel of ½ to 1½ inch; and an ASTM/SEI approved helmet. If you have any questions requiring correct attire, contact the farm.
