Our summer riding program operates from June 29 until September 4, Monday to Friday from approximately 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Riding Director would have to be available from end of May/beginning of June until September 4th. Campers range in age from 6-15 and register for a minimum of 2 weeks (may also register for 4, 6 or 8 weeks). We lease approximately 30 horses. As the horses are leased, the riding director would be responsible for riding the horses and choosing which horses are suitable for camp prior to their arrival. This typically happens in mid-June. Horses arrive on site in the second week of June and the riding director spends 2-3 weeks riding, training and ensuring that the horses are suitable for the camp program. There is a maximum of 48 campers per session and a staff of approximately 10-15 (instructors, stable management staff, riding counselors) that must be trained, supervised and managed. In addition to running the program, the Riding Director, with the assistance of your staff, is responsible for feeding, and the general health and well-being of the horses (with the assistance of your staff). Onsite living accommodations will be provided.
