Back by popular demand, students will have a chance to get an introductory look at horseback riding and horse care.  Instruction will be held on the grounds of Oak Hall and led by the staff of Dreamstone Farms.  Lesson’s will be held in a rising ring with a major focus on safety.  Campers will be introduced to the various riding styles including western, dressage, hunter (live demonstration!), eventing, and reining while learning the specifics of English riding!  Once campers have a firm grasp on the basics, an obstacle course that the campers build will be used for Friday’s show open to Mom and Dad!  Campers will also have experiences in the breeds and colors of horses, the structure of a horse, grooming, horse nutrition, and veterinary medical care for the animal.  Safety will be emphasized and helmets (provided) will be worn.
