Our youngest Bynden Wood Day Campers and campers in our Explorer program at Camp Conrad Weiser will all have a pony ride. Once a week the youngest campers get to experience horse riding in the pony arena.
Camp Horseback Riding Lessons
All campers ages 7 and up, in Bynden Wood or Conrad Weiser, may sign up for English riding lessons. This add-on program allows campers to go to the barn five days a week for 1-hour lessons. After passing the rider test, each camper will ride on the trail. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.
Full Day Specialty Riding Camp
Ages 9 – 15
This Specialty Riding Camp is for the serious equestrian. In addition to horse care Campers will improve riding current riding skills and learn mounted orienteering on miles of camp’s mountain-top trails. Campers will spend the entire day down at the barn but will also have one activity period where they can chose different camp activities. Campers should have an adequate skill level to control the horse at a posting trot to participate in this program. Campers will be evaluated on Sunday evening and placed in the appropriate lesson group for the week. Advanced Specialty Camp Riders will also participate in the Saturday Morning Horse Shows.
