It is unusual for a camp to offer so many equestrian experiences, but we believe that a developing rider should be able to learn as much as possible about horses and the different ways they are used. Our methods of teaching riding enable students to experience success in graduated steps promoting their self esteem and confidence. Girls will use the riding skills they learn at this camp the rest of their lives. International Riding Camp is accredited by the American Camping Association.
