Jennifer Blades, USHJA certified trainer and

and have an entire week of learning
and fun filled experiences. Our camp is focused on
developing riding skills. Most of camp time is spent riding, and with the horses!
Riders are split into camp groups according
to level and age, to maximize one on one learning with their camp counselors.
Ride groups are generally 6-10 riders
group, and our experienced team of camp counselors give instruction according to
rider level. Riders at our
camp are sure to
gain new and valuable riding skills whether it is their first time on a horse,
or they are already jumping courses.
With over 20 school horses, we offer a horse for
every level, from retired A circuit
horses, fun beginner ponies, to horses currently showing on the show circuit.
Many of our camp horses

of Michigan Equestrian Team members in the winter months, so they are fit and ready
to have fun in summer camp.
