Running since 2005, Ridgewood operates a camp aimed at the beginner to intermediate level. 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 7-14 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.
