Running from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day, riding camp pairs youth equestrians of all experience levels with instructors for a mixture of formal riding lessons, husbandry activities, and horseback games. In addition, campers may observe the ranch staff as they take care of the animals, and on Friday, attendees enjoy a pizza lunch as the horses scoff at the lack of hay for toppings. Though camp normally requires a $100 deposit, this fee is waived for Groupon customers.

Camps will take place from June 5 through August 31. There will be no camp the week of July 1-5. Camp is valid for youths 18 and under.

Stono River Riding Academy

Since its founding by Marion Reid in 1969—and through its adoption by current owners Michelle and David Folden—Stono River Riding Academy has helped riders connect with temperate steeds and with their natural surroundings on 360 acres of trees and pastures. During classes and leisurely rides, trainers lead mounted explorers through the labyrinthine passageways of Johns Island, passing beneath billowing drapes of Spanish moss and escaping the cacophony of urban areas. Stono River’s staff always keeps safety in mind, ensuring that pupils wear proper equipment and familiarize themselves with all the confusing controls on the horses' dashboards.
