Horsemanship Camp 
 

Our Horsemanship Camp is open to all levels of riders, ages 5 -- 18. Participants ride in groups that are organized according to equine experience in order to enhance learning for all. 

 

In addition to receiving English riding instruction, participants learn about ...

At Furnace Brook Farm, we are dedicated to providing rewarding experiences to everyone. Our campers receive the individual attention and instruction they need to keep safe and to grow a lifelong love of horses and riding.

On the final day of camp week, families are invited to visit the farm for a special horse show to see what their campers have learned.

Counselors and junior counselors are students and former campers of Erin's who are enthusiastic and accomplished equestrians. Each counselor completes a training program prior to working with campers. CPR certification and First Aid training is included as part of pre-camp training for the camp director and counselors.
