JC Eventing hosts a couple weeks of summer camp geared towards more experienced riders looking to improve their education in the sport of eventing. Camps are open to both current JC Eventing students and outside riders. You can find our 2017 summer camp offerings below!
Eventing Camp is an action packed week designed to prepare riders for their first horse trial. This camp is open to riders ages 10 and older who are capable of performing a basic walk/trot/canter dressage test, jumping a course of at least 2'3", and riding competently outside of an arena.
Eventing camp is August 7th-13th. This camp runs Monday-Saturday, 8:00am-1:00pm, culminating in campers competing at the Frazier Farm Horse Trials on August 13th in Woodbury, Connecticut.
Camp days will be filled with intense riding lessons, cross country schooling, discussions about competition rules, and seminars on preparing horses for eventing.
Eventing camp is $550 for the week which includes the entry fee to the event (a $100 value) as well as trailering to and coaching at the event (a $150 value).
Eventing Camp is open to both JC Eventing students and outside students. Priority will be given to current students and outside students MUST have their own horse and own transportation to and from the horse trial. Outside horses may spend the day at JC Eventing while their rider participates in camp but must haul-in each camp day. If interested in boarding outside horses for the week of camp, please inquire to see if a stall or paddock is available. This camp has a maximum of 4 JC Eventing students and a total maximum of 6 riders, so please sign up early!
Eventing Preperation Week
Eventing Preparation Week is for riders 10 years or older who are capable of performing a walk/trot dressage test and are confident jumping small fences both in the arena and out in the open. This camp is specifically designed for riders who are looking to get their feet wet in the sport of eventing. This week is also perfect for riders planning to participate in the Eventing Camp week later on in August.
The daily riding lesson will focus on introducing the three different phases of dressage, cross country, and stadium jumping while the unmounted sessions will teach the basics of the rules, tack and equipment required, course design, and many other important aspects.
Eventing Preparation Camp runs from June 26th-June 30th, 9:00am – 1:00pm. The last day of camp, riders will compete in a mini horse trial held at our facility consisting of a dressage test, a stadium jumping round, and a cross country round held around our ½ mile grass track.
Eventing Preparation Week is $400 for the week. The camp is open to both current JC Eventing students and outside riders with a maximum of 6 riders total, so please sign up early!
