Equestrian Camp

The Community Horsemanship Program at Wesleyan College provides area riders an opportunity to learn more about the care of horses and ponies, riding, and mounted sports  including gymkhana. Offering quality instruction in hunt seat riding (based on the modern forward seat) and in western horsemanship, students can ride and compete without the expense of owning their own horses. Welcoming riders of all skill levels, we help students develop responsibility, sportsmanship, moral judgment, leadership, and self-confidence.

Each session features morning Equestrian classes which include group riding lessons and proper care of horses. Each student is assigned to an accomplished and trained Wesleyan horse. Equestrian lessons are taught by experienced college and professional level instructors who have won numerous national level awards. Afternoon activities include supervised games and swimming in Wesleyan's indoor pool.
