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
Stono River Riding Academy is a dressage-based riding school owned and operated by David and Michelle Folden that 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. The academy also offers a summer camp program as a fun and exciting way to introduce children to the beauty of horses and riding. Stono River’s staff always keeps safety in mind making sure that every one is comfortable and familiar with the basic controls of a horse.
