Trotters camp is for kids that know how to rise or post the trot on the rail. If your child is in lessons or has done lessons or camp in the past and are able to steer while trotting, this is their camp.
Beginners camp is open to kids who have never ridden before and to those who are still working on their trot on the lunge line.
Mini Mite camp is for younger students of all levels of experience.
Camp students are required to wear helmets, long pants, and riding boots when riding. Helmets are provided for students that do not have their own. English riding boots or paddock boots are required for camp. Synthetic children's boots usually cost around $35. Please check out the Getting Started page or ask Jennifer for more information on clothing.
If there is a little rain, we will continue with our usual activities as long as there is not any lightening. So for potential rainy days, a change of clothes and rain coat might be needed. Rubber boots are nice to have for bathing horses and barn chores.
We will start our morning activities at 8 am and end with our last activity for the day at the end time. You may drop-off kids up to 30 minutes early in the morning and pick-up up to 30 minutes later in the afternoon. An even later time for pick-up can be arranged for an additional fee of $3 an hour. If a later time is needed, ask Jennifer in advance.
Trotters and Beginners campers need to bring a peanut free bag lunch with them. They are also welcome to bring a change of clothes for afternoon activities.
There will be a riding demonstration on the last day of camp for friends and family to come see the students show off their riding skills.

Deposit is non-refundable. Balance is due on the first day of camp. Only accepting six students per camp. Call Jennifer at 843-639-1045 if you have questions and to register.
