SJ Riding Program

The Riding Program at SJ Riding Camp is geared toward campers with a wide range of interests and experiences. Some of our campers are beginners while others have been riding for years. The only common factor is a love for horses! While at SJ you will live in cabins with girls your own age but you will be placed in a riding group with other campers at a similar riding level. When you first arrive at camp, you will learn the barn safety rules and the basics of horse grooming, saddling and bridling, and mounting a horse.
