HORSING AROUND WITH THE BRIDGES HERD!
Bridges camps are fun-filled-action-packed pure joy for your horse crazy girl or boy!
Camp is geared towards ages 7 to 12 with campers divided into groups by their age and experience level. For ages 13 – 16 we offer Teen Camp select weeks. Please check the schedule or call for details.
Each day, campers will groom their own horses, ride for at least 45 minutes in a group riding lesson in the morning and an additional 45 minutes in the afternoon for all day students. Students will participate in clinics dealing with a variety of horsey subjects, and other hands-on horse care activities.
Riding instruction is English style riding although we sometimes take a turn at a little Western, Bareback, and Dressage to give our students a well rounded education. We focus on equitation and creating effective riders.
We have over 20 experienced school horses and ponies and strive for that perfect connection between the horse and rider.
We can no longer offer lunch or snacks. Water will be available all day at camp, however all Food and Snacks must provided by students. No refrigeration is available but lunch bags will be stored in a cool, indoor location.
