Horse Camp Spots Still Available

We still have a few horse camp spots available for summer 2013.  We have a very high camper to instructor ratio:  Never less than 3 to 1, sometimes 1 to 1.  We boast that our campers are with horses the entire camp time.  Fringe benefits you won’t find anywhere else.  Come for a visit.
