Gotta have it!!!!!! Horse Lovers Program
For those campers who desire a more intensive riding experience than offered by Cedar Lodge's Full Riding , or Horses 'R Us programs, Cedar Lodge offers a two week intensive riding camp during every 2 weeks of every summer starting with 1st week. Horse Lovers program runs similar to the show team, without the show. Campers will have 2 lessons a day, with the option of a third ride if they choose.
The program includes two mounted lessons and one ground lesson per day. Campers will work towards learning standard horsemanship skills such as wrapping legs, first aid for horses, saddle fitting, and much more. At the end of the two weeks there will be a practical exam that will cover concepts learned throughout the two weeks, as well as a riding exam. Campers who pass the exam will earn an achievement award allowing them to progress to the next level. They may also try to test for a higher level if they feel they have a strong knowledge of the subject areas. After the exam campers will partake in a riding clinic to strengthen areas worked on over the two weeks and for input on what to work on in the future. Clinicians will be made up of knowledgeable coaches who compete/judge/train top level riders and horses.
Requirements for Horse Lovers:
As Horse Lovers is geared more towards a certain level of rider, the Cedar Lodge riding staff has come up with a list of prerequisites for potential participants.
These weeks are open to anyone who can walk, trot and canter in a group of ten riders. You must know your diagonals and leads, make circles at all three gaits and be able to do simple lead changes.
2 week campers only
