Alfred University's equestrian camps are residential summer programs that offer wonderful opportunities for beginning to advanced riders. They are designed to define and achieve camper’s personal riding goals during an exciting, fun-filled week. Campers can bring their own horses or use AU’s great lesson horses.
The English Equestrian camp is scheduled for July 9-14, 2017; Western Equestrian is scheduled for July 23-28, 2017. The Equine Business high school institute, for campers interested in the horse industry as a business, is scheduled for the week of July 16-20. This camp will encompass instruction, riding and caring for horses as well as a full day at a local county fair learning the ins and outs of putting on a horse show.
The camps are held at Alfred University’s Bromeley-Daggett Equestrian Center, which features classrooms, viewing areas, a 200 x 800 indoor arena, 50 stalls and two outdoor arenas measuring 200 x 100 and 80 x 100. When not in class, campers enjoy fun recreational activities along with time to relax and get to know one another. Out-of-class supervision is provided by a team of camp counselors, who are specially trained to serve as positive role models, mentors and friends.
The AU campus is located in a peaceful village in western New York State, surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful meadows and valleys. Campers stay in clean, modern residence halls and all-you-can-eat, cafeteria-style meals are served in the University dining hall. With Alfred University's excellence in teaching and quality programming, this is the perfect place to spend an enjoyable week or two learning, making friends, and experiencing life on a college campus.
AU also offers equestrian day camps for beginner to intermediate riders and “First-Touch” Equestrian for kids who have never ridden before.
