Here is your opportunity to improve your riding and your communication with your horse by riding with a variety of instructors and learning new skills!  Camp includes: stabling at Brecksville (shavings not included), 2 private 45 minute dressage lessons, 1 Working Equitation group lesson, 1 other lesson/fun event that is TBD on Sunday, direct access to the Brecksville Reservation trails in the metro park,  lectures, pizza party, yoga, games and fun.  

Our Vision The past four years we have had an amazing time at camp bonding, learning and just enjoying being together.  We envisioned camp to be just like a summer camp but for us! This camp is designed for us, the adult rider who wants to have fun, learn, and enjoy being together in a laid-back atmosphere.  You are free to participate in all or just a few of the activities.  Feel free to audit all lessons, trail ride or just hang out and enjoy being in touch with your inner kid!  This is OUR time to be at camp!

Housing  We are encouraging everyone to stay where they are comfortable.  You can commute from home daily or get a place to stay locally.  

Food  We will have bottled drinks, small packaged snacks and carrots in our welcome stall.  These will be available all weekend. We will have a potluck dinner on Thursday evening – please plan to bring something to share.

Stabling  No shaving are provided.   You are welcome to bring your own (stalls are VERY large) or you can buy them when you arrive at camp for $6/per bale.

Other Details   Each camper will receive a camp memento (prior years we have done camp t-shirts) We love to do games and give away prizes!  Be aware with changing guidelines the NODA release may be updated and we will need everyone to sign the new one when that happens.   We will be in touch via e-mail/private Facebook group to discuss specifics.  Final schedule including ride times will be sent to you the week before camp.
