Come experience riding and polo, "Grizzly-Style", at Garrison Forest’s stunning D. & J. Smith Equestrian Center and Sheridan Polo Ring located in the heart of Baltimore County! This week long overnight equestrian AND polo combo camp is for young riders who want to enjoy a diverse and fun filled riding and horsemanship adventure. Participants will spend their days with top trainers in the Hunter/Jumper and Equitation disciplines, as well as with top polo trainers learning the exciting sport of arena polo. In addition to riders learning the foundation and skills of each discipline, they will learn safe and correct horsemanship skills such as proper grooming, tack cleaning, parts of the horse and its equipment and many other aspects of horse care. Afternoon, evening, and weekend schedule will include on and off campus activities such as swimming, yoga, bonfires, arts and crafts, movie and game nights and more! Some riding experience required.
