SUMMER DAY CAMP PROGRAMS for CHILDREN, TEENS, and ADULTS
CHILDREN'S SUMMER DAY PROGRAM:
Children between the ages of 6 to 8 are often quite ready to start learning the basics of riding and pony care. A half day program is best suited to youngsters of this age group. This program is designed for children with little or no experience. These youngsters will be introduced to being on and around a calm, steady pony; there is constant one to one supervision when in contact with the pony, be it mounted, or working in the barn.
TEEN/ADULT'S SUMMER DAY PROGRAM:
Children 9 and over, and teens enjoy a full day program. Supervision is always at hand. Each rider is taught at his/her own level, and not pushed to keep up in a competitive program. Hot lunches are provided, as well as drinks for the day.
Adult Summer Day Programs are similar to the Teens', except being focused on adult interests and abilities. Adult programs are run separately from the children's or teens'.
Company / Farm: Mar-a-Thon Stable - Mar-a-thon is a small family oriented riding stable located in the northern part of Prince Edward County, right in the heart of the Belleville-Napanee-Picton triangle. English riding lessons, and summer day camp programs are offered to children, teens, and adults.
