Camps Offered

Outdoor Circuit & Strength Training
Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:30am
Take off the fat, bring on the muscle! Stations of varying intensity, each focusing on cardio or strength training, are set up; each exercise is performed for a specific number of repetitions or for a prescribed time before moving on to the next stations. This interval workout improves strength and stamina for all fitness levels, and is extremely benificial for fat burning. This is no ordinary "boot camp" style class. These sequences are designed to specifically benefit riders while toning-up and shedding pounds! Look better in your breeches while enjoying your rides more. Combine this class with the Tuesday/Thursday Strength and Flexibility for Riders class for ultimate results!

Cost: $630 per person for six-week session

Strength and Flexibility for Riders
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30am
Focus on improving muscle strength and flexibility in this class designed specifically to improve your seat, balance and upper body strength. With a base built to help stabilize and strengthen you in the saddle you are better able to focus on the finesse skills of riding. A great refresher for the rider gearing-up for the new show season, a "must do" for the beginners among us. Fun and effective for both! Combine this class with the MWF Circuit Training for the ultimate results!

Cost: $420 per person for six-week session

Enjoy BOTH classes at the discounted rate of $950 and SAVE $100
