Horsemanship Camp will delve into the care and keeping of horses, safe practices, and the care and management of equipment. Riding lessons will include trail riding, bareback riding and mounted games, alongside standard lessons. Arts and craft will be horse-centered and focus on the history of the sport, as well as current events and issues within the equestrian world.
