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.
Horseback Riding Lessons
All campers ages 7 and up, in Bynden Wood or 9 and up (traditional camp) for Camp 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 a 1 hour lesson. Lessons will included un-mounted and mounted time at the barn. After passing the rider test, each camper will ride on the trail. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.
Specialty Horse Riding Camp
Ages 9 – 15
This Specialty Riding Camp is for the serious equestrian. In addition to horse care Campers will improve current riding skills and ride on miles of camp’s mountain-top trails. For the two week Riding camp, Campers will spend half days day down at the barn but will also have 3 activity periods where they will participate in different camp activities. Campers who attend a one week Riding camp will spend the whole day at the barn and will have one activity period of other 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.
