Camps and Arranged Workshops
Woodland Farms is now welcoming camps and workshops to the program! Our camps are dedicated to teaching new riders the ins and outs of horseback riding; this includes horse safety, instruction on how to clean and prepare our horses for riding, and the basics of riding. Woodland Farms also offers one-day workshops where students (in small groups) receive an introductory lesson to horseback riding. Please contact Kelli if you are interested in scheduling a workshop or camp for your young riders!
