Riding Camp functions within main camp but offers extended and concentrated time to develop horsemanship skills. The program focuses on communication with fellow campers, horses, and ultimately, God.
The riding campers spend the majority of their time developing their skills in the ring, which they showcase at the end of the session during the Horse Show. Riding Camp provides exposure to English & Western riding styles, harness driving, vaulting, and horsemanship theory. Campers also participate in trail rides, grooming, saddling, and bridling. Many breeds of horses are available for the Riding Campers to experience including mini horses, Belgians, Quarter horses, Appaloosas, Paints, etc.
The program is led and taught by Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) instructors. (CHA is a national organization that certifies for safety and teaching which was co-founded by Ruth Huff.) The CedarS Riding Program is directed by Cathy Brantingham Moyle, who has worked with horses and various professional horse trainers for 28 years. This is Cathy’s 18th year as a CHA certified instructor for Western Pleasure, English, and Trail Riding.
Through a practical application of Christian Science, Riding Camp is a great opportunity to improve confidence and comfort level around horses.
