Horse Back Riding – Ages 10 and Up

 

 

Equestrian Program from Camp Gorham on Vimeo.

Offered 5 days a week, every session. Additional registration required
With 1,500 acres of property, Camp Gorham offers campers the chance to experience any number of horse trails. Camp Gorham is accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association. The CHA provides the accepted Standards for Equestrian Programs. CHA requires accredited members meet standards for safety, education and animal welfare through a detailed process which examines the site, program content, staff qualifications and equine management.

Campers who register to take horseback riding as one of their 3 electives will begin with riding lessons, building to a trail ride. Campers are grouped by ability level with lessons being tailored to maximize the experience for each camper. Campers who do not choose this elective may still be able to experience the horses either by assisting with barn care or may take part in a scheduled cabin ring ride in our arena. Helmets are provided; campers registering for this program MUST bring riding boots/shoes with pronounced heel and long pants that come to the ankle for riding. Lessons are 1 1/2 hours with equestrian staff. After assessments, riders are grouped into beginner, intermediate and advanced classes.
