Summer Horseback Riding Camp

Bridgette's summer horseback riding camp is a great way for kids to learn in a fun and natural way. Horses offer students the opportunity to learn many important things such as learning to become aware, respectful, appreciative, confident, and to learn to deal with fear, apprehension and how to better communicate and become a leader.

We have four different levels to choose from. From the beginner who has never had a pony ride to the serious showing student. We have camps to meet everyone's needs.

Riding Camp Hours - 9:30 to 3:30 (Little Beginner Riding Camp ends at 3pm)

Groups and Troops

I would like to welcome you to our groups and troops program. We are a small working farm dedicated to teaching people how to take care of and ride horses. We believe that a good foundation is one that teaches the students how to work with the horse's nature. Our program is a great introductory for all of our future potential horse trainers, riders, veterinarians and animal caretakers!

What you can expect to learn:
  • How to properly groom the horse
  • How to clean a stall, feed, mount
  • Basic position in the saddle
  • How to hold the reins
  • How to steer

Lesson is one hour long. Cost is $25 per person. The length of lesson can be tailored for your group! We usually suggest coming twice for 1 hour. For more information call Bridgette at 516-425-0693.

Volunteer Program for Kids!

This is a great alternative for families that don't want or can't afford to send their child to horse camp. Parents are required to pay for one riding or ground lesson per. visit. This lesson gives your child the tools he or she needs to safely work around and ride horses. A trained adult will be present during volunteer hours 8:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Drop off and pick up at your convenience within these times. Lessons are one hour long and cost $70. Kids will learn how to groom, hoof care, halter, lead, saddle, bridle, clean stalls, paddocks and the basics of how to run a farm.

If you would like to schedule a visit to see the farm, please call Bridgette 516-425-0693 website bridgetteharwood@www.com

Horsemanship for Kids & Adults

I strongly believe that one-on-one training is generally the best way to learn! However, beginner students, when in a group setting, seem to progress much faster than when learning alone. Watching each other seems to inspire, motivate and build confidence in a super easy way. This program is designed to bring you as far as it can without compromising quality. This class will take you right up to the point where private lessons should begin. Group is 4-6 people.
