8. Beginning campers are taught the basics of how to Stop, Go & Steering while working on their position.
7. Campers lessons are taught by a USHJA certified trainer and assistants.
6. Advanced Walk/Trotters master steering skills, position changes and balance
5. Advanced campers work on cantering, ground-poles and level appropriate jumps.
4. We check for retention of knowledge from riding lessons & off horse skills during each camp week.  
3. Campers in all our programs are required to learn about basic hands on, horse care and stable management.
2. We have a great camper progression rate, each session or year our campers attend they are building on their skills.
