WESTERN
& English!

IN AUGUST, VARIETY RULES!

WESTERN

Western Riders, we have something for YOU! We have a western riding program at ALL of our August camps, covering everyone from beginner to advanced western riders.

ENGLISH

Yes, we still have English at our August Camps. And yes, we still jump at our August camps. These camps are a nice choice for those who ride English, & don't want to come in July.

ride & learn

 Ride English, Ride Western, or ride BOTH!  It’s a fun month with clear sunny skies and just the right temperatures to enjoy the end of summer! Beginner to advanced lessons, covering equitation & horsemanship, games, patterns, & TRAILS too!! We are surrounded by the wilderness of Algonquin Park, making us an amazing camp choice! We have tons of cool online videos, check out our Youtube Channel!

WESTERN RIDERS WELCOME!

There aren’t alot of horse camps in Ontario where a western rider can get good training in western riding, on good western horses that can do the job.  We have the coaches AND the horses to give your camper a great western camp!

How does that work when there are English riders  too?  Western and English are not mutally exclusive, they share MANY of the same basics. We are able to give ALL of our English & Western campers during our August weeks what they need to progress.  Our advanced riders team up and do exercises that will challenge them and teach them to guide their horse. Our beginners will be busy learning the basics of their chosen seat. In the afternoons, we come together for paddock games or a trail ride. FUN FUN!!!

Something for everyone!

EQUITATION. HORSEMANSHIP. GAMES.
TRAIL RIDING!!!

Kids ten to seventeen years will love our August camps.  Our program will work on riding position, steering & control, and of course the tasks will be geared towards riding levels. Bring a friend, or come alone.  Everyone hangs out – a friendly camp format!
