Summer Riding Programs to be Held at WWU



FULTON, MO – William Woods University will host summer riding camps for youth ages 10-17 in saddle seat, Western, dressage and English/hunter pleasure.

Youth will get the opportunity to ride university-owned horses under the guidance of staff and WWU student mentors. As the week progresses, riding skills and friendships grow through the student/mentor program, designed to provide riders with individualized attention.

A typical day at camp will include horseback riding in the morning, followed by an educational film or presentation in the afternoon. Learning is hands-on and interactive. Campers also have free time and take field trips. Meals and housing are provided.

Each session will also include demonstrations and discussions on horse health, anatomy, nutrition, conformation and the responsibilities of horse ownership

All horse-related activities take place in the William Woods equestrian complex, located on campus. It includes six barns, two large indoor riding arenas and an outdoor ring.

Programs are designed for beginning to advanced riders. Campers will ride once or twice a day and are responsible for tacking up and cooling out their horse.

The program runs July 6-11 for riders ages 14-17 and July 13-18 for riders 10-13. Riders are encouraged to sign up early. The English/hunter division is already full.

For more information and to register, call 1-800-995-3195 x1153 or go to www.TheWoods.edu/SRP.
