EQUESTRIAN SKILLS DEVELOPMENT CAMP FOR ADULT THERAPEUTIC RIDERS is 5 days filled with fun and learning for campers aged 15+ with a clinical diagnosis. Campers experience the social, recreational and physical benefits that come with a five-day immersion in PARDS’ therapeutic programs. PARDS provides an instructor, a horse and all the necessary tack and riding/driving equipment.
During their day at camp, participants will enjoy activities including riding lessons, cart driving lessons and stable management.
We accept a maximum of 9 campers per week to ensure excellent support for each camper from our staff and volunteer team.
Campers do not have to be current PARDS therapeutic riders – the camp is open to community members from ages 15 to adult who have been diagnosed with a physical, behavioural, cognitive and/or social disability. Please contact the office for more information on required medical forms.
PARDS has a selection of appropriate helmets and footwear for loan during camp. Riders must wear socks; and helmets/boots are not to leave the PARDS property.
