Our Staff

The riding camp has been under the ownership and direction of Arno Mares since 1978. While the camp keeps him busy during the summer, the winter months find him playing polo in Florida and Argentina. Arno is a member of the Certified Horsemanship Association, the United States Equestrian Federation, the Blue Sky Polo Club, the United States Polo Association, the Polo Training Foundation and the American Camping Association.

Our riding staff is selected from hundreds of applicants from all over the world, but most of them are from England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. All of them have extensive equestrian experience and love everything about horses. Our riding staff is required to attend our pre camp, two week training session. We use their existing riding skills and enhance them in our training course. Our staff is tested online for each topic to make sure that they understand the material and are ready to use this knowledge to give your daughter a safe and happy equestrian camp experience that they will always remember.
