Welcome to a Unique Equestrian Camp Experience!
International Riding Camp, Summer Riding Camp for Girls Ages 7-17 — the Only Horse Camp to Offer 6 Hours of Riding Daily.
THE INTERNATIONAL RIDING CAMP was established in 1978 for girls 7-17, who love horses and riding. Located 90 miles Northwest of New York City, the riding camp provides an environment in which horse lovers can experience various riding disciplines: hunt seat equitation, cross-country jumping and polo. We offer a well rounded equestrian camp program along with water skiing, tennis, swimming and arts and crafts. The camp fee includes, 1½ hours of riding daily. For some campers, 1½ hours a day is not enough riding so we offer the option of riding 3, 4½ hours or 6 hours a day. A maximum of 5 students in each class, our campers ride in one of our three riding rings, our cross country course, or on our trails. Students must pass a riding skills test in order to go on the cross country course or trail rides.
Our teaching techniques enable our students to experience success in graduated steps, promoting self esteem and confidence. Since all of our campers love horses, their common interest allows them to make new friends right away. There is a maximum of 45 campers in any session. About half of the campers come from the New York metropolitan area; the rest come from across the United States, Europe, Asia and South America. Our campers make lasting friendships that continue many years after they leave our riding camp.
We are the only equestrian camp in the USA to offer air conditioning in each dormitory room.
Our English riding camp also offers riding during the winter at at the El Venado Polo School in Pila, Argentina. The only horse camp to offer an endless summer of riding for our campers.
