Vermont Firefly Farm Summer Camp 2017

First Session June 26-June 30, 10:00 am-3:00 pm

Medieval Knight's Training and Horsemanship Day Camp:

Young Lords and Ladies get to take an imaginary trip to Medieval times to a land of knights, princesses, and dragons, Riding, Horsemanship, History, Medieval Crafts, Games and much more.

At Figure 8 Riding we believe riding and horsemanship teach life skills that go beyond the sport. Horseback riding can lead to self-growth, improvement in confidence and spiritual well-being, a deep connection with animals, and a greater appreciation of the natural landscape and local community. These are lessons that we believe our ponies are uniquely qualified to teach.

For youth who: like ponies, have a good imagination, and want to learn about horsemanship and medieval history in a whole new way.
