Biggins Stables Offers Adult Camps



Openings are still available for Biggins Stables Adult Winter Riding Camps for 2009 which will be held Feb. 6-8 and March 6-8 at the farm in Simpsonville, Ky., near Louisville. The annual riding camps, known for quality instruction and fun atmosphere, attract adult saddle seat riders of all skill levels from all parts of the country.

Intensive riding instruction is the central focus of the Biggins Adult Camps. Coordinator Renee Biggins tailors the program to the ability and goals of each rider. Beginners through advanced riders can sharpen their horsemanship and showmanship skills on a wide variety of horses, including five-gaited Saddlebreds. All participants benefit from the accumulated knowledge and experience of the instructor who has produced numerous world’s champions.

In addition to the riding instruction and training techniques, campers have the opportunity to visit a local Kentucky barn. This is always a favorite experience among the campers and instructors. Last year, the camps visited Bret Day at Grey Ridge Farm, Crumpler Stables and Kathy Capsuto at Escalade Stables for an amazing showcase of the American Saddlebred.

The campers are also visited by a veterinarian and farrier for insightful talks about horse health. Biggins adult campers work hard, taking two lessons each day of the three-day camps. There are also evening activities for the campers to unwind. They will enjoy the company of their fellow horse-enthusiasts at spirited dinners where new skills and horse backgrounds will be shared at local restaurants two evenings during the camp.

Space is limited and the camps fill quickly. Please call Renee Biggins at 502-772-5068 for more information or to request a registration form. Also make your hotel reservation for Biggins Adult Camps at the Best Western at 502-633-4400.
