The Program

This year the Buffalo Equestrian Center is offering FOUR sessions. Two weeks for ages 6 - 12 and two weeks of 5 year old camp. Each session will run Tuesday through Friday. Each session will feature activities for riders at the beginner and intermediate levels. Students may progress to a more advanced skill level as skills are mastered.


In addition to group riding instruction, the program will also feature instruction on grooming and general horse care. Campers will learn about daily barn management and maintenance at a hunter/jumper barn and learn how to set courses. A special Camper’s Horse Show will be held at the end of the summer and is available to all campers. Children must be between six and thirteen years of age and each session is limited to twenty children.

Camp Schedule

Summer Camp is a great introduction for children. The camp is four days a week, Tuesday through Friday. Each child is able to ride for one hour a day. Along with daily riding lessons, the children have constant learning experiences in the barn and the opportunity to form new friendships - in human and animal form!
