3-Day Intensive Horse Riding Camps
Join us for a horse camp! Horse camp is an intensive 3 days of horse, horse, horse!
Each day you will receive TWO riding lessons, ONE theory lesson/fun horse game that sneakily makes you learn something, and a lunch on us! Days start at 10 am and go until 4 pm. Camps run from Tuesday to Thursday.
In our Horse Day Camps 1-2, riders will be put in groups with their skill level. They will be assigned an instructor to continue their skill progression over the three-day camp. English and Western Riders are welcome!
Horse Day Camp 3: Advanced Horsemanship/Multidisciplinary Camp. For riders ages 13-18. This is a camp for riders who have their own horses! There will be limited VEC horses available. Riders must be able to walk/trot/canter proficiently. Whether you ride English or Western, this camp is for you! Learn from our professional trainers the tips and tricks learned across the disciplines that will improve your riding and knowledge as a horseperson! At this camp, you will advance your horsemanship, technique, and training skills. Each day you will be introduced to two new disciplines of riding and will have the opportunity to try out and learning training tips from each discipline under the high-quality tutelage of our professional staff. The disciplines you will be introduced to at this camp include Western Horsemanship/English Equitation, Dressage (English or Western), Show Jumping, Working Equitation, Trail, and Mounted Games.

If you are bringing your own horse you must:
Provide proof of a negative Coggins test within the last 6 months.
If you would like to keep your horse at VEC overnight you must provide your own feed, and bring your own water buckets for your horse. You are expected to clean up your horse’s pen each day. We will give your horse feed in the morning before camp starts. You will be expected to do the evening feeding once camp is over.
Bring your own tack and equipment for your horse. However, if you do not own a helmet, you may borrow one of ours.
If you are travelling from far away and need a place to stay, VEC is located 5 minutes away from Valley Regional Park. Bring your camper and make a holiday of it! The golf course at Valley Regional Park is also pretty stellar!
