Otterbein’s English riding camp is designed to expand camper’s equine knowledge both on and off the horse. Campers will ride an hour and a half to two hours each day and learn the ins and outs of horse handling, equine nutrition, braiding, equine first aid and general horse care. This is a competitively priced academic camp that is sure to sharpen your equine skills. Just choose a camp week that suits your riding level and schedule and register before it fills up (8-15 students per camp)
