The riding program provides for all levelsóbeginner through advanced. The focus is on safety, humaneness, good performance, and effective communication with the horse. It includes daily lessons in English (hunt seat), horse science (parts of the horse and tack, breeds, colors, behavior, etc.), and pleasure riding (trails, bareback, games and relays, team events, drill team, free riding time). Riders develop safety awareness, a secure and well balanced seat, and an understanding of how horses think and feel so they can better handle and communicate with them. The emphasis is a combination of both fun and achievement, since neither one lasts long without the other. Campers make solid and sometimes dramatic progress in their riding. They develop close personal relationships with their horses and their fellow riders, and they become humane, aware, and competent horsepersons and able, confident riders.
