Horseback Riding

PROGRAM OPTIONS FOR BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED RIDERS

Campers can choose to either ride as a daily activity (horsemanship) along with their other chosen camp activities, or dedicate their entire week to riding by choosing our Equestrian Week while registering online. Campers enrolled in horsemanship ride every day for 50 minutes. First-timers will begin learning the basics of walking, posting and trotting while more advanced riders focus on cantering and even jumping. Mt. Gilead’s wooded property offers trail riding terrain for both beginners and advanced riders. Instructors work one-on-one with each camper, challenging them to step out of their comfort zone while maintaining a safe and fun atmosphere.
