Join the fun crew at Skibbereen Farm this summer as boys and girls explore the world of horses! Summer Camp offers campers the opportunity to learn how to care for horses, ride properly and make new friends - both 2-legged and 4-legged!
Who's Camp For?
Skibbereen horseback riding summer camp is designed for boys and girls ages 6 and up who want to experience riding at all levels. Each camp will feature activities for riders who are new to horseback riding and offer challenges to more experienced riders.
When Is Camp?
Camps run rain or shine, Tuesday through Friday from 9am-1pm. Skibbereen farm has an indoor arena for horseback riding if the weather does not cooperate on a given day of the camp.
July 25-28 *Advance Camp
*Advance Camp is for riders who are comfortable trotting on their own.
**Any student who participates in the advance camp and then wishes to enter a summer horseshow can do so for a discounted flat fee. Please see Molly or Chrissie for details.
What should I Bring to Camp?
Campers should dress for the weather (this is Western NY after all), but all campers need to wear long pants, boots or heeled shoes and a helmet. If you don't have a helmet, the barn has helmets your camper can borrow. Everyone must wear a helmet when working around horses.
