Is it summer yet? Not until camps/clinics/horse show season start!
Although most of the college students go home for summer break, our staff and equine team here at the Equestrian Center are just gearing up for another busy season. After a few weeks out in pasture, many of our herd will come back home to the barn for summer camp, horse shows, and clinics. After a three year hiatus to accommodate construction, Miami will be hosting summer camp on site- yay!
In addition to camp, Miami will have several other opportunities available for local equestrians of all ages. On June 6th from 4-8 pm and June 7th from 8-12 pm, Miami Equestrian will be offering a 4H open show preparation clinic. Students will work on showmanship, horsemanship, and equitation. Miami can house your horse overnight. This is a great opportunity for riders on the open show circuit to brush up on their skills before heading to the shows! For registration, contact Beth Akers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, we are offering four weeks of half-day camp run by Miami staff with our fabulous and patient group of horses. Camp will run from 8:00 AM-noon, full of activities from learning about equine first aid, feeding, and care along with hours spent in the saddle. The following weeks are available to sign up:
Students of all ability levels will be comfortable at our camp, as our range of horses and highly capable instructors will be able to adjust to all riding levels. Beginners will start from the basics and will ride western, but students with experience will also have the opportunity to ride hunt seat or dressage, depending on a riding skills assessment. Campers can be aged from 8-18. To register, contact email@example.com
Miami staff also runs the horse camps offered at YMCA Camp Campbell Gard- learn more at their website, http://www.gmvymca.org/CampHorse.aspx.
The farm will also be hosting their first dressage schooling show on June 21 as well as a dressage clinic on August 2-3. For more information, contact Lindsey Carmack at firstname.lastname@example.org
