Our camps offer focused equestrian instruction and horsemanship. A student can greatly improve their skills during camp in a safe, supporting, professional and exciting atmosphere. Rider’s accomplishments including riding and horsemanship, which would normally take about three months to achieve, can be realized in five fun-filled days.
All camp sessions operate from 9:00-4:00 daily with after care option available
Registration must be accompanied with payment to front desk at the RCRA, or call in to pay with credit. ALL CAMP FEES MUST BE PAYED PRIOR TO SESSION DATE.
Our goal at the RCRA is to introduce the students to riding and the care of horses and to continue to enhance those skills. Our standards are aligned with the Ontario Equestrian Association and our riding lesson programs cater to a wide range of students and abilities/disciplines. If you want to ride competitively, recreationally, or therapeutically we will help you to meet your goals.
Our Summer Camp program includes riding lessons in the morning, Lunch, riding in the afternoon, before and after care of the horses and fun extra-curricular activities for a wonderful holistic riding and social experience.
The benefits of riding are many including: developing body awareness, improving fitness, problem-solving, psychological heath, positive character and confidence building, improving responsibility, making new equestrian friends (socialization) and “a return to nature” to name a few.

In all Camps
Our camp content is designed to fit around the level and age of the groups that are formed. The following is an example of some content campers can look forward to covering and is modified according to the lesson at the time.
“Bridle Wars” – Can you bridle any horse, anytime, anywhere with confidence, safety and skill? If not then you have something to learn from this fun game!
“Track Wraps” – Everyone knows that it’s the race track folks that can polo, bandage and boot horses like no one else! . This is a stable management day you won’t find anywhere else!
What to bring:
SAFETY APPROVED RIDING HELMET. Helmets must be properly fitted and must meet A.S.T.M. standards. Rental helmets are available from us and we can assist in fitting.
SAFETY APPROVED, PROTECTIVE RIDING VEST. Vests must meet A.S.T.M. or B.E.T.A. safety standards and must be properly fitted. While this is currently not mandatory, we highly recommend it for any riders under the age of eighteen.
