The Show Camp focuses on how to be best prepared for horse showing. During the first week of show camp we will focus on what you need to be best prepared. We will have a judge come out and assess the skills of the campers in a mock show. If possible, the camp will visit a horse show as observers. The second week of show camp will end with a weekend show at Sedgefield in Greensboro. The price of participating in the horse show is not included in the camp price, however coaching and trailering horses to the show will be included. The show camp is open to any rider interested in learning more about showing.
Novice/Intermediate Camp –
Week 6 Cost per week: $300.00
The Novice/Intermediate camp will focus on riding outside of the ring. Campers will spend most of the riding time outside of the ring. Since the campers in this camp will be riding out of the ring, prior approval is necessary.
NOTE: In order to hold a camp slot a $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required. The balance is due the week before camp starts. If you are unable to make the week you signed up for all efforts will be made to fit you in another week.
All camps are limited to 6 campers per week. Current students at Rosewood Farm have first priority in all camps. Camps must have a minimum of 3 campers. If the camp you desire has fewer than 3 campers every effort will be made to find a i suitable camp. If a suitable camp that meets your scheduling needs cannot be found then the deposit will be applied toward weekly lessons.
