Running since 2005, Ridgewood operates a camp aimed at all levels. Our camp is a combination of riding and learning about stable management and equine sports. Arts & crafts and fun themed days are also part of the experience. So whether your child is at the beginner level or looking to improve their skills we have a fantastic program for them. As well as improving their riding skills, our campers get to make new friends, enjoy safe independence away from home and of course, have fun! Each year we accept young riders aged 6-14 and with a variety of excellent horses and ponies for all levels, we will have the perfect fit for your child. There is no doubt that our campers will enjoy their time and various horse riding activities that Ridgewood Farm has to offer.
What to Expect at Camp
Covid-19 Safety & Prevention Protocol: Ridgewood Farm is happy to be offering camp during these difficult times. We will only register 12 children per week and will then break them up into two groups of 6 during the day to help with social distancing. Ridgewood Farm will be following the Covid-19 Ontario Guidelines for Summer Camp. We ask that parents make sure that your child is feeling well with no fever or any Covid symptoms before arriving each day to help ensure everyone's safety.
Campers ages 6-14 years-old are welcome.
Campers receive 8 structured lessons throughout the week, each lesson is an hour in length. Fun pony game relay races, small hacks around the property and much more!
Riders are taught with the emphasis on sound basics of equitation and good horsemanship.
For the more intermediate/advanced rider, we offer a more extensive program which allows riders to continue developing their riding skills in order to meet higher goals.
When not riding, campers will be taught stable management and horsemanship skills. These topics will vary from day to day but usually include visits from the farrier and vet.
By the end of the week each camper will walk away with a better understanding of horses and will have made some great new friends.
Camp Hours are from 9:00am to 3:00pm
Before and After Care is available - please inquire.
