Summer Riding Camps

A happy pair of Cornerstone Summer Riding Camp Participants!

Cornerstone Ranch Summer Riding Camps

Cornerstone Summer Camps are an ideal way to introduce children with limited riding experience to the pleasures of horseback riding, and for children who are already experienced riders to practice what they know and enjoy the pleasure of learning new skills.

Students can look forward to learning the basics on how to catch, lead, tie up, brush, bridle, saddle, mount and how to care for a horse. Students will receive riding lessons with an authentic horse show as the grand finale to demonstrate their skills!

Children are required to bring their own food, drinks, sunscreen, and suitable riding attire (such as long pants and a shoe with a heel) for the day. Comfortable clothing such as shorts and sneakers may be brought to change into. Helmets are available.

Summer Riding Camp Horse Show Participants

We plan two separate weeks for our riding camps each year. Our camps are great for first time riders to advanced. All of our stable volunteers and employees over 18 years old are required to submit to a CORI provided by the CHSB, Commonwealth of MA.

Each Riding Program is held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 8:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., Friday 8:15 - 7:00 p.m. Campers put on an authentic horse show Friday afternoon beginning at 4:00 p.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. Pizza and ice cream will be served at the horse show to campers and spectators! Parents, relatives and friends are encouraged to attend and cheer on the participants!

Friday is an extended day because we put on a horse show and serve pizza and ice cream (build your own sundae). Pickup Friday is 7:00 p.m. but we encourage all to come early and watch the show! We can be flexible with the drop off/pick up times during the week to accommodate parent's work schedules. Please let us know of your needs ahead of time.
