Summer Camp 2017

Weekly Summer Intensives

Where riding is so much more
than sitting on a horse!

Join us in 2018!

Spend a week or more with Blue Rider and be prepared for rare and wonderful equine experience.

For 27 years, Blue Rider Stables has provided students of all ages and abilities opportunities to encounter equines in a unique educational setting.

Under the artful direction and guidance of our experienced licensed riding instructors our campers learn:

  • Horse care skills that will guide them to take care of horses and treat them with respect
  • Bareback riding to develop and improve skills while deepening their knowledge of horses and farm life in a safe and nurturing environment.
  • Learn how to feed and manage horses in a herd environment, barn maintenance, grow and nurture vegetable and flower gardens, and even care for a few rabbits!

*Blue Rider’s Summer Camp is a licensed summer camp and meet all regulatory standards established by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Half day sessions are uniquely designed around the dynamics of the camp group. The primary focus is to allow campers to have fun, while exploring the world of horses in a herd environment; through equine anatomy, horse care, riding, and vaulting. Age and ability appropriate riding skills are taught in a supportive group setting, with individual attention given to each camper and his or her own learning style and goals. Barn safety and etiquette are reinforced in all aspects learning. BRS requires children ages 4-5 to be prescreened for camp. All children attending camp must be fully potty trained.

Full day campers have expanded opportunities for setting individual goals and in-depth learning. Our instructors take a deeper dive into the “why” we do things, not just the “how”. Full day immersion allows campers more time for riding, as well as space to bond with the horses and with the other campers. Please remember to bring lunch, snack, and water.
