Residential Camps

Each week is an adventure on horseback! Arena lessons, trail rides, beach rides, campfires, barbecues...each day and evening offers something new! Camp culminates in midnight ride and games on horseback. End of camp Graduation and Awards Ceremony for parents and friends. There are miles and miles of trails located oceanside. The Coast has mild, cool summers (average temperatures in the 60's and low 70's). PERFECT environment for horse riding!
