What is the Full Riding Program?Cedar
Lodge's Full Riding Program is designed for the equestrian that want to
work seriously on improving their riding skills, but also may be
interested in all the other general camp programs that Cedar Lodge has
to offer. Campers that sign up for this program are campers that are
willing to commit to riding at least once a day for 5-6 days a week.
Many campers that sign up for the full riding program find that one
hour of horses is enough for them per day, and choose to spend the rest
of their day spending time in the many General Camp Programs
that Cedar Lodge offers. Others, choose to spend most of their entire
day going from one horse related program to the other. At Cedar Lodge,
we work hard to accommodate both types of camper. Campers that find that
this program does not offer enough riding for their liking may want to
sign up for either the Horses 'R Us program, or the Horse Lovers Program. If you would like to see how these three programs compare, please check out our Horse Programs explained page.
Though there is no requirement that campers signed up for the full riding program must come to their riding lessons, they are required to inform their riding staff if they are not coming. If campers chose not to participate, there are no refunds of your Full Riding Program fees. The full riding program includes 5 lessons per week, and a 6th day of the choice of either Specialty rides or Trail rides. Specialty rides are additionally held 4-5 days during the week in the afternoon and campers in the full riding program may opt to sign up for this class for a second chance to ride every day. These rides are on a sign up, first come first serve basis and the amount of rides a particular camper will get may vary. On the average, if a camper signs up all 5 days for specialty rides, they will get to ride in the Specialty classes, 2-4 times a week.
Full riding program campers are qualified to attend ground lectures and special classes held throughout the week designed to encourage personal growth in all riders. Examples of classes are braiding, horse management, horse physiology, breeds, colors, conformation and training the young horse.Campers that attend regularly can work on four levels of Ground Lecture certifications that Cedar Lodge offers as part of a rider's education. Full Riding Program participants are also qualified for field trips and educational videos.
All two week campers that sign up for the Full Riding Program for both weeks are offered the additional horse program of a Horse Overnight on our famous "Star Hill".
Full Riding Program participants are still welcome to join in on our vaulting classes, held twice a day 4-5 times a week.
For those campers unsure of whether the Full Riding Program is too much of a riding commitment, Cedar Lodge offers the Basic Riding Program as part of your registration package. There is no extra fee for this program.
