Join the fun at Singletree Stables Equestrian Camp for a week of learning in a safe, fun, and friendly atmosphere.
Singletree Stables offers an enjoyable camp program for a small number of students who want intensive hands-on equine instruction. Camp groups are kept small so that each rider will benefit.
Singletree Stables offers quality riding instruction. The students will have access to excellent school horses or you may inquire about bringing your own horse. The focus will be on acquiring riding skills and increasing their knowledge of horse care.
The Singletree Stables Equestrian Camp is designed to teach correct and safe riding, respect and care for horses, to learn of the many facets of the horse world, and to have fun.
Our campers learn the fun, work, and responsibility of caring for a horse as is it were their own. The student will get lots of hands-on experience with mounted and theory lessons as well as grooming and handling.
Mollie Esterson, a Certified Riding and Camp Instructor, is the owner/ director at Singletree Stables. Mollie has over 50 years of camping experience and youth work. She finds that working with students is one of the most stimulating and rewarding experiences that a person may ever hope to find. It is her responsibility to impact knowledge, joy in the sport of riding, care of the horse, and to instill a keen sense of good sportsmanship in her students.
In order to enjoy your ride, Mollie will require her students to wear a protective helmet (we have some helmets available), along with riding boots, or suitable shoes, entirely enclosed with a 1/2" heel. Socks that go up past the ankle will also be required. Campers will be most comfortable in suitable riding pants such as breeches, jodhpurs, jeans or long pants. No shorts will be allowed for riding. Sneakers, tennis, shoes or hiking boots will not be allowed.
A typical day for campers includes arriving and greeting their friends and horses followed by grooming and saddling, where we stress responsibility and the importance of careful attention to their work. Next, the first lesson starts in which safety and correct riding are emphasized.
Campers should bring a mid-morning snack and a packed lunch, Monday through Thursday. We will provide lunch on Friday and campers participate in a gymkhana.
The total cost for the week will be $225.00 per camper.
In order to complete your reservation, we request a non-refundable $25.00 deposit upon receipt of this letter to secure space. (This may be applied toward lessons if, for some reason, you are unable to attend).
