During the summer months, the regular lesson schedule is suspended due to hot weather and vacation schedules. There will be evening classes offered for adults and interested students. We accept new riders with no previous riding experience in the Standard/Vaulting Camps and evening lessons. We accept riders 6 years old and up into our vaulting program (the safest of all equestrian sports!) and 7 and up into our regular riding program.

Standard Camps: are offered in the mornings to take advantage of the cooler weather and to allow for a more concentrated learning program.  Students will spend one full day on Thursday during the week to help prepare for a cookout that evening, at which the evening meal will be cooked over an open fire.  During the week, the student is responsible for the care of their horse and tack.  Ring riding, trail riding, mounted games, vaulting and ground lessons are included.  Groups are limited to 8 riders. No fluff, lots of time in the saddle! 8 AM to 1 PM and all day on Thursday.

Vaulting Camp:   Sessions are appropriate for beginning level as well as experienced vaulters preparing for Regionals (6/28-7/1; Lexington, VA) and German exchange program (7/9-13)  Go to: for more information about vaulting. We did an exchange with a vaulting team in Hannover, Germany last year and we are hosting them in July!

USPC : United States Pony Club training for our team members and prep for those who qualified for Championships in Lexington, KY. This is also a week for advanced riders.  We will be doing some field trips for cross country riding.

Assistant Instructor Camp:  This is for older, more experienced students who want to assist at our Standard Clinics. Certified Horsemanship Association curriculum is followed, candidates teach lessons, role play students and are evaluated and at the end of the week, there will be a written test. There are 4 levels within this certification program. For more information about CHA, go to .
