Trail Riding

Each camper will have the opportunity to go on a trail ride while they are at camp. The BR has many different trails you can experience. We have farm trails, open fields and of course a deep dark forest!  


Vaulting was introduced into our riding program in the 1980’s as the sport gained popularity in California. Vaulting was developed in Europe as a way to introduce children to horses. Modern vaulting is best described as is gymnastics on horseback and can be used to help riders develop balance and confidence. We give lessons in the morning and if the girls like they can join the vaulting club in the afternoon.

Camp Fires & Cookouts

We open and close each session with a camp wide campfire ceremony. Younger campers will have S’mores around the fire and older campers will have the choice of a cabin sleep-outs. In the 2 week sessions the campers who are eligible to be staff the following year (16 by June 1st) celebrate their final year as campers by going on their own trail ride sleep out adventure with their staff. They spend one night camping and have two meals over the camp fire where they set up camp, care for their horses, and spend the night under the stars.
