About the Trip

This Destination is designed for girls who love horses! Girls will arrive on Sunday and enjoy two riding sessions per day, along with two ground lessons where we will be learning essential trail riding knowledge, such as how to pack for longer trips on horseback, equine first aid, etc. Girls will plan for and pack for a lunch pack out trail ride. We will also spend a night out in the beautiful Chattahoochie National Forest for a campout trail ride, where we will set up camp, cook out over a fire, and sleep under the stars! Evening group activities include swimming, hiking, campfires, and movie nights. Additional activities may be included, such as riflery, challenge tower/zipline, archery, and boating.

Where You Go

Armuchee, GA

What to Know

To participate in this Destination, you MUST have prior riding experience. It is highly recommended that girls have extensive experience stopping, starting, and steering their horses at a trot (minimum), but preferably at a canter. We will be riding Western all week, so girls that normally ride English will need to come with an open mind and the desire to try and learn new things.

Girls will also need to be prepared to spend a night outdoors.

Make sure to include your experience with horses and camp/camping  in your application!
