Our CHAMP Camp (Counselor-In-Training, Horse, And Management Camp) is designed for our current clients that we have identified as up and coming leaders in the program. CHAMP Camp is by invitation only, and it is a great honor to be nominated by your Riding Instructor. To be eligible to be nominated for CHAMP Camp, you must be a current active student, taking at least weekly riding lessons, as well as a current and active member of our Pony Club. Nominees demonstrate a desire to have deeper learning, are coachable, demonstrate great sportsmanship and are a model of conduct we want others to emulate.
For further information, please contact your trainer.
Show Prep Camp
This is a camp (offered during summer sessions ONLY) designed for the rider that is already very active in our lesson program and demonstrates the abilities to walk, trot, canter, and jump. This camp is geared toward widening your knowledge base, fine tuning your performances, preparing for the show at the end of the week, and having fun! Each Show Prep/Advanced Camp session includes a GDCTA-recognized schooling show trip to Poplar Place Farm in Columbus, Georgia, at the end of the week! Show Prep/Advanced Camp provides an amazing opportunity to develop as a rider and prep for and compete at an off-farm combined training or 3-phase event, all at a deeply discounted rate! Camp tuition INCLUDES your horse lease, horse transportation, and coaching at the show. Please note that you will be required to pay show fees to the venue and rider is responsible for their own transportation to/from show venue as well as hotel accommodations at the show. Unfortunately, Show Prep Camp won't be offered in the summer of 2021. We know...boo!
Eventing Camp is an immersive experience designed for the serious GWIF rider. To be considered for Eventing Camp, riders must show a proficiency on the XC field and at the shows. This week-long, sleep away camp is open to Adults and Kids alike - as long as you are serious about the sport!!! In this camp, we pack up and head to Aiken, SC to the lovely Full Gallop Farm where we live all together in campers on site at Full Gallop. Every day is filled with riding opportunities - daily cross country activities, private dressage lessons, swimming with your horse, trail riding and so much more!! Camp fees include lodging, meals, coaching, and transportation of your horse. Riders are responsible for getting to/from Aiken and will need some spending money for tack store excursions and the occasional meal off the farm. Please discuss with your regular instructor if you think you are ready for camp!
