Wildwood Ranch presents another year of horsemanship opportunities! Class levels are decided by the students riding ability. Wildwood Ranch instructors specialize in dressage and English riding. Horsemanship lessons take place every Saturday beginning in May and continuing through November.
We also offer overnight and day camp horsemanship opportunities for those interested between the ages of nine through seventeen. Saddle up our horses for a week of horsemanship, riding and other summer fun at Wildwood Ranch Horse Camp. Daily ground and Western or English riding lessons are supervised by CHA certified riding instructors. Trail riding is a fun extra! Add Christian friends and counselors, other camp activities, daily devotional times and worship and it will quickly become your best week of summer! Give your family and friends a taste of your week during the horse riding pattern demonstration held on Friday afternoon of our summer camp sessions. Don’t miss out on all our horse program opportunities, call our camp office today for more information or register online today!
