As part of its traditional summer camp program, Rockbrook offers an extensive equestrian program. It combines qualified staff, experienced horses, and excellent facilities to create an atmosphere where campers can advance their riding skills, expand their horsemanship knowledge, and enjoy riding with friends. Our equestrian staff is qualified to teach a wide range of riders. Young beginners play mounted games and get to learn all about their favorite horses, while others may learn to post the trot, or canter or jump. More advanced riders may get to jump through gymnastics or over natural obstacles. The Rockbrook summer camp horseback riding program is based on the American system of forward riding, a system used by many top hunter-jumper, eventing, and dressage riders. When campers select horseback riding as an activity at camp, the equestrian director considers their skill, confidence, and size in assigning appropriate mounts, riding groups, and instructors. The overall priorities of the Rockbrook riding program are safety, fun, and skill advancement.
