Adult Camps

Adult Camps are held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9:00 am - noon. Each camp includes a one-hour riding lesson. The balance of time is spent on horse handling, horse psychology and training methods. Information will also cover rider awareness and how we influence a horse's behavior.

These camps will prepare you for weekly group lessons held in the evenings and on Saturday. Please see our event calendar for our current adult camp dates.

Summer Day Camps

This program is designed to develop the necessary skills to safely ride and/or own a horse. There are six levels of achievement, with each level teaching information in these four categories: riding skills, horse handling skills, equipment knowledge and horse health. The student's riding skills are developed during group riding lessons each day.

Horse handling skills and equipment knowledge are taught with a supervised, hands-on approach through grooming, saddling, bridling, heeding and feeding of an assigned horse. Each level has its own manual covering the knowledge needed to pass that level, and a certificate is awarded upon the level's completion. Please see our current Summer Day Camp event calendar!

Horse Training

Greenbriar also offers horse training for horses and people wanting to bring along a young horse, or teach an older horse new skills. We also work closely with the owner to develop an appropriate training plan for each horse. Please contact us for more information on horse training.

Pee Wee Pony Camp

These one week camps during the summer are introductory riding camps for children ages 6 and 7 in a small group setting. The students will learn safety around the ponies, both on the ground and in the saddle. The emphasis is on having fun and learning the basics as they learn to interact with the ponies.
