“Horses, Horses, and More Horses” 
(July 17-21 and July 24-28)

OFFERING 2 EXCITING WEEKS!!
A camp for the horse crazy kid that just can’t get enough of horses in his/her life!  This camp is geared towards the more experienced horse enthusiast with independent riding skills who is interested in learning and advancing their riding and horsemanship skills.  Along with daily riding lessons, campers will be immersed into the world of horses and build on the basic skills and knowledge they may already have.  The goal is to strengthen these existing skills and challenge each camper to learn new ones at their own pace.  This camp is taught by a PATH Intl. Advanced Instructor who has extensive teaching experience and has successfully competed in the hunter and equitation divisions at rated horse shows along the east coast.  Campers will be given the opportunity to ride Mane Stream’s experienced and safe show horses that have competed in top level horse shows around the country.  Emphasis will be placed on independence both on and off the horse.  

Camp Tuition: $400.00 per week per camper ($100.00 non-refundable deposit per week)
