Did you notice that our equestrian camp names changed?
The Outdoor Team has been refreshing all of the GSTOP equestrian program content. With the changes, campers will exit camp with the confidence in their horsemanship abilities to test for Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) level 1 or 2 skills. Fan favorite lessons and games that they have all learned to love are now in the Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced Horsemanship sessions.
The goal is for campers to return home more excited, more courageous, and more informed on how to care for and ride horses. Campers will gain experience with horse anatomy, riding equipment, horse care, riding techniques, and other skills that translate to personal and professional aspects into their everyday lives.
