Campers will follow in the footsteps of our barn staff, responsible for the care of our barn’s spectacular horses. The campers will participate in feeding and watering the horses twice a day and learn the types of hay and grain used, how much to feed the horses and why this information is important in horse ownership.

3. Bluegrass Riding Academy Summer Camps

Ride, care for horses, learn about equine science and visit famous horse farms, equine hospitals, Kentucky Horse Park, and other horse tourist attractions all in one summer.Camp is owned and operated by a Ph.D in Equine Science.

BGRA Summer Camps host both day and residential camps for riders interested in developing their horse and saddle seat riding skills. Beginners through advanced riders are welcome and are placed in riding groups according to their age and skill level. Participants may bring their own horse or use a school horse. Campers may register for 1 week or multiple weeks of camps. Campers live at the home of Dr. Sally Haydon, the owner/director of educational programs at the Academy. The maximum number of residential campers per week is limited to 12 campers.

During a typical day at camp, participants spend extended periods of time at the stables riding twice per day and learning practical horse skills and technical horse information. More scientific information is gained by campers through creative craft projects, games and activities. Some of the crafts, games and activities are centered on topics including horse care and health, horse anatomy, nutrition, conformation, management and history of the American Saddlebred.

Campers experience a real taste of the Kentucky horse industry by visiting renowned horse farms, horse shows and stables including American Saddlebred, Thoroughbred, Eventing and Dressage farms. Other sites visited while at camp include the Kentucky Horse Park, state of the art equine veterinary hospitals and equine therapeutic centers, breed associations, Churchill Downs and/or Keeneland Racecourse, and other equine businesses.

In addition to horse activities, riders are given time to relax at a local swimming pool and recreation center and participate in other recreational activities. Depending on the session the camper attends, the camper may have the opportunity to show their horse at a local horse show.
