Horseback Riding Program
Camp Deer Creek offers our special English riding program.
This summer's program will feature the following areas of horsemanship:
* Hunt Seat Equitation (beginning through advanced)
* Pleasure riding
* Elementary jumping
* Grooming and showmanship
* Care of horse and tack
Deer Creek lessons are group lessons approximately 45 minutes in duration and cover all aspects of horsemanship, from a first meeting with a horse, to jumping and cantering, and also horse and tack care.
Cost is $42.50 per lesson.
Riding equipment consists of long pants and hard-soled shoes or boots with a defined heel. Tennis shoes are not permissible. Riders are required to wear protective helmets or hunt caps. We provide helmets or your child may bring their own. Please make sure your camper's name is on their riding equipment. Also, please send in your child's equipment on Monday. When they have finished their lessons for the week they can take their equipment home for cleaning.
Campers can request one, two or three lessons per week. Because of rain and absences, our daily schedule is not made until the morning of each camp day. There is no way of scheduling what day your child will ride before that. Please send in your child's equipment on Monday. When they have finished their lessons for the week they can take their equipment home for cleaning. Occasionally, your camper may have to finish their requested number of lessons on their next scheduled camp week. Every attempt is made to give every camper their number of requested lessons. If we still cannot meet that number, you will be given a refund.
