Riding Lessons in Hunters, Jumpers, and Equitation


Summer Horse Camp 2024


Summer Horse Camp is a great way for children to be introduced to the world of horses, and to learn the skills needed to be effective and safe equestrians.  We offer Beginner and Novice Camps, as well as an Advanced Show Camp for children who have devoted themselves to riding and want to further develop their skills in competition.  

 

At Tall Horse Riding Club, we strive to educate every child that walks through our doors, not only in the art of riding, but in horsemanship as well.  In addition to two hours in the saddle with an instructor during each day of camp,  we provide many other educational activities for campers as well that will increase their knowledge of our equine partners.
