Campers, before you come to Camp, you'll choose 6 skills you want to try! You'll do 3 skills each day for about an hour each. Most Skills are designed for campers who are new to an activity. If you are already well experienced in a particular skill we encourage you to try something totally new that you've never done before. Also the skills below are what we hope to offer this summer; but, some skills may change before you arrive.
Campers begin their skill through familiarization with the horses in the ring. This controlled environment exposes the campers to basic, intermediate, and more advanced (depending upon the class) techniques in English riding. They will learn the skills necessary to communicate with a large animal through small gestures and movements. Our well trained, certified staff goes to great lengths to increase the campers’ comfort level with the horses and their riding abilities. One of the primary aspects of the horseback program is that we familiarize campers with the horse as an animal to be respected and cared for. Crestridge campers help with feeding and grooming of the horse during specially designated times.Back to Skills
