SUMMER CAMP 2015

WE WILL START TAKING NAMES FOR

SUMMER CAMP 2015 ON JANUARY 2, 2015!

LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!

SCHEDULE POSTED BELOW -- KEEP SCROLLING!

Please arrive a few minutes early on the first day of camp to fill out paperwork.

Camp hours are 9 am to 2 pm.  Aftercare is available on an as-needed basis -- please give us 24 hours notice.

The health form is linked to our website, but we will also have copies the first day of camp that you can fill out, as well as release forms.

Children should bring lunch (in an insulated bag if refrigeration is needed).  We have a water fountain but they may bring water and other drinks as desired.

Shorts may be worn, but riders must have long pants and appropriate shoes for riding.

We will do a water day but will give advance notice to make sure campers bring appropriate water clothes and dry clothes.

We will have an end-of-camp Horse Show and Pot Luck on last day of each camp and will send an information sheet and pot luck form home with campers.  Please return the pot luck form so we know what we may need to plan for.

Looking forward to seeing you guys!  Please call with any questions.

(These dates will change ONLY if the school year is lengthened due to excessive snow days.)

June 15 through June 26, 2015 -- Jump and Beginner

June 29 through July 10, 2015 -- Beginner Intermediate through Advanced Flat

July 27 through August 7, 2015 -- Beginner Intermediate through Advanced Flat

9:00 am to 2:00 pm --

We have found that extending hours past 2:00 is hard on the kids!

There is a $100 registration fee (non-refundable if cancellation is after May 1) due upon sign-up by cash or check (by mail is fine).

After-care available 8:00 to 9:00 am and 2:00 to 5:00 pm if necessary ($6 an hour).  You do not have to commit to an entire week of aftercare -- it can be arranged on a daily basis as long as we have 24 hours' notice.

TIPS TO SCHEDULING TRAIL RIDES
If you have 1 or 2 people:
The earliest you can call is 9:30 the SUNDAY BEFORE YOU WANT TO RIDE. This is the earliest time you may call. For example, if you want to ride NEXT Sunday, you must call THIS Sunday at 9:30.  If your call goes to voicemail but you are very anxious to get a reservation, KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU GET A PERSON ON THE PHONE.  We do our very best to pick up the phone; but, if we have our hands full with horses, we cannot pick up.  SO TRY BACK UNTIL YOU GET A PERSON.
If you have 3-6 people:
When you have this many people you are considered a group. I recommend scheduling at least 4 weeks in advance. To book this many people you must call in and reserve and then either send in a check or come by with a cash or check to make a deposit of half the amount. This is to reserve your spot. If it rains you will be given the option to ride in our indoor arena or reschedule.
 

DO NOT SCHEDULE TRAIL RIDES THROUGH VOICE MESSAGES! TALK TO AN EMPLOYEE ON THE PHONE AT 301-622-2424

We book up extremely fast, especially in the fall. Please be patient, if we could accommodate 100 people a weekend we would! We only send out small groups of people because we only send horses out on the trail that we feel are 100% safe with beginner riders.
 
One of the few stables in the Washington D.C. area that offer escorted trail rides for adults and children.  Escorted trail rides are available Sunday afternoons and last one hour.  The cost for the trail ride is $40.00 per person . 

*Reservations are required, and may be made no earlier than the previous Sunday for 1 or 2 people. The earliest time to call is 9:30, the Sunday before you would like to ride.

*Groups of 3 or more may reserve earlier with a deposit of ½ the total amount. This is required when making a group reservation. Often it is better to reserve at least a month ahead of time, especially when the weather is nice.
 
*Children must be at least 8 years of age.  For your safety and the well being of our horses, the weight limit is 180 pounds. 
 
What to wear for your trail ride:
 
You must wear long pants - no shorts.  Boots or closed shoes with a small heel are preferred.  Sandals, clogs or open shoes are not allowed.  An ASTM certified riding helmet will be provided.
