Raspberry Ridge will be offering day programs only in their new location in Almonte and at the old location (new management) in Newburgh.
We have over 20 school horses and ponies, most of which we have raised ourselves. They range from small ponies to large Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds, and lovely horses in between.
Children will also enjoy hugging a donkey, friendly goat or sheep, or collecting fresh eggs in the morning...Making new friends... Discovering artistic talents...And most of all, having fun! The horses and ponies are happy and well taken care of, and enjoy camp as much as we do! Our camp director is a Certified Level 3 English and Level 1 Western CHA coach.
Our camps are an experience to remember, and have (when we offered overnight camp) attracted campers from all over the world (including China, Korea, England, France, the Middle East, Holland, the U.S., Argentina, Germany, Australia, Iceland...) Horses aren't just part of our camp, the are our camp. We have classes for beginner up to riders who are competing on the show circuit.
Daily hands-on activities include: (depending on age/level of rider) Learning to safely catch and lead the horse, learning to groom and tack up independently, and of course learning to ride! Campers also get to learn how to look after the animals by helping with feeding and daily chores. Camp riding lessons are tailored to the individual level of the riders.
Off-horse activities include learning the breeds, colors and markings, basic horse anatomy, styles of riding, naming parts of the saddle and bridle, etc. With daily crafts and games, campers are definitely never bored! Please ensure that children get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast before camp, so that they have lots of energy for their active day.
