Springbrook Equestrian Center offers a riding camp throughout the summer months. Even if you have participated in previous year's camps, riders enjoy each summer attended. Campers have a wonderful opportunity to have fun close to home, not only with new found friends but with the key ingredient to camp.....the horses!

Each day campers have a horsemanship session which covers proper care of the horse as well mounted instruction (weather permitting). Games on horseback are also offered, everything from musical stalls to obstacle courses. Campers will participate in numerous horse related activities throughout the week.

Eligibility

Each session of camp has up to 10 participants. Camp is open to boys and girls ages seven to sixteen years old with or without previous riding experience. For those without any previous riding instruction, we suggest that participants take a riding lesson or two prior to the camp session. Campers will then be more familiar with the stable and the horses, enjoying their time at Springbook even more.

Days and Times

Each session will run Monday through Thursday 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM and Friday 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM. Drivers are required to sign campers in and out daily. On Friday the campers will participate in a riding demonstration which begins at 11:00AM. Family and friends are invited to attend the riding demonstration which is followed by lunch.

Clothing and Equipment

Long pants are required during the camper's riding lesson. Helmets will be provided. Shorts and clothing appropriate for arts and crafts may be worn during the rest of the day. Boots or hard soled shoes with a heel (no sandals or sneakers) must be worn at all times.

Lunch

Participants should bring their lunches on Monday through Thursday, refrigeration and a microwave are available for use. Lunch will be provided on Friday for campers and family members following the riding demonstration.

Cost

The cost is $395.00 per week per camper. Full payment is due with each application to hold your campers reservation. Refunds are offered if a two week written notice is given and your campers reserved spot is filled with another camper.

Latch Key

Latch Key services are available before and after camp at $12.00 / hour. All services must be prearranged with the office.
