"What forms do we need to submit?"
We must have both a Riding Release as well as a Medical Release submitted by the time your camper arrives at camp. We have also added a Photo Release that we request you to sign. These should be originals if at all possible. Clink on the links for each to print. They can then be completed and mailed or scanned & emailed.
"My daughter loves to canter. Will she be able to do so at camp?"
Some limited loping may be included in the Original Wilderness Horse Camp. However, Saddle Club will not lope to ensure the novice riders' safety.
"My daughter is 11 but an expert rider, can she join the Original Wilderness Horse Camp?"
Unless girls have spent at least one summer camp with us in the past, it is important that they be at least 12 to join the Original Wilderness Horse Camp. We would encourage her to come for the Saddle Club the first year, and then she can return the following summer for a longer and more in-depth experience.
"Can my daughter bring her own tack?"
Yes, provided it's a western saddle. It must have both a back cinch and a breast collar. We also encourage riders to bring their own helmets if they have them.
