These camps are scheduled for all levels of riders. The focus will be on teaching young equestrians proper and safe riding techniques and care for horses and equipment.
Advanced levels excel in perfecting riding skills and expanding their horse knowledge.
Each day, weather permitting, there will be lessons on horseback and off. A typical day would have a lesson, unmounted instruction, and mounted games or a trail ride.
Great opportunities are in store for those advanced campers who are accepted. They will benefit from having instruction every day and guest professionals.
Emphasis will put on each individual’s skills that may need attention both on and off horses. In addition, they will be trained in course designing, horse show management and produce our Tuesday evening horse show.
Of course, there is always time for fun and games.
Advanced campers must be able to jump a 2’ course and know their leads and diagonals.

SNEAD STABLES AT BRAEHEAD FARM
Braehead Farm is located just off the Blue-Grey Highway in Fredericksburg. This is an old dairy farm with a new equestrian venue. Braehead offers the same summer program with instructor Beth Linton. This is a new facility that incorporates a nostalgic dairy barn with all the new amenities of an equestrian center.
