Camp Riding and Vaulting Programs

Bronze Riding or Vaulting Plan

Our Bronze Riding or Vaulting plan is a great affordable plan for those that enjoy riding or vaulting but also enjoy everything else at camp. Campers choose to ride or vault daily for one program period and receive an instructional class for 5 days, with an optional trail ride or practice ride on the 6th. Two week riding campers will also have the option of a horse overnight. The rest of their day, campers will be free to chose from the many other great general programs at camp. If campers decide this program is just not enough horse time for them, or they would like to do both riding AND vaulting, they should look into the Silver or Gold riding and vaulting plans.

Bronze fee for vaulting: Developing vaulters: 80/week or Advanced vaulters*: 110/week

Questions you may ask:

Q) What does this plan include?: 1 riding lesson daily, 1 vaulting lesson daily, sign up for specialty rides 3 times per week, Saturday vaulting and practice rides. Horse overnight for 2 week or longer campers.

Q) Do I have to come to my lessons daily? No. Just make sure you tell your instructor if you’re not coming to your riding class. Vaulting is done on a drop in basis. There is a great selection of general programs at camp and we understand! If you decide not to ride however, there will be no reimbursement for lessons missed.

Q) What are Specialty rides? Specialty rides are held 4-5 days during the week in the afternoon and campers in the Silver and Gold programs may opt to sign up for this class for an additional chance to ride during the week. These rides are on a sign up, first come first serve basis and the amount of rides a particular camper will get may vary. On the average, if a camper signs up all 5 days for specialty rides, they will get to ride in the Specialty classes, 2-4 times a week.Kat and Earl

Q) What other horse programs are offered? All riders and vaulters are qualified to attend ground lectures and special classes held throughout the week designed to encourage personal growth in every rider. Examples of classes are braiding, horse management, horse physiology, breeds, colors, conformation and training the young horse.Campers that attend regularly can work on four levels of Ground Lecture certifications that Cedar Lodge offers as part of a rider’s education. Silver and Gold Plan participants are also qualified for field trips and educational videos.

All two week or longer campers that sign up for the Silver and Gold Plans for at least 2 weeks are offered the additional horse program of a Horse Overnight on our famous “Star Hill”.

Gold Riding or Vaulting Plan

Want to do nothing but horses at camp? This plan is for you!!!!!

Availability all summer at this time.

For the serious equestrian camper that wants to come to camp and do pretty much horses all day long we offer the Gold Plan! Campers will need to chose on whether they would like to focus on their riding or their vaulting. They will receive two lessons/day in their preferred focus, but still will receive lessons in the other focus if they desire. Additionally specialty rides and ground lessons can fill their day with pretty much horses all day, every day. All programs are optional (as long as they inform their instructor if they are opting out) for those days that perhaps they decide they would like to do something non horsey, or just need to relax a bit. Two week campers that ride will be given the option of a horse overnight during their stay.

Gold Plan
