Guests will enjoy a leisurely schedule designed to get in lots of "saddletime" as well as allowing plenty of time to take in beautiful New Orleans. Each day begins with guests gathering at the picturesque Cascade Stables around 10 a.m. and concludes around 3 p.m. allowing guests plenty of time to relax and take in all New Orleans has to offer. Evenings are your choice. You can either dine on your own, or join the group at one of New Orleans' top restaurants chosen by camp director, Barbe Smith.

A block of rooms are reserved for guests at the Hampton Inn and Suites New Orleans Convention Center, located in the vibrant historic arts and warehouse district and close to the city's finest dining and shopping in the Central Business district.

Transportation for the entire weekend is offered for a $50.00 fee. It will include rides to and from Cascade Stables as well as transportation to and from guest dinners.
