Foxcroft Opens Registration for 2023 Equestrian Residential Camp
Foxcroft is excited to offer a week-long equestrian residential camp from June 25-30, 2023, for riders entering the 8th-11th grade in the fall of 2023 and interested in exploring attending Foxcroft School during their high school years. The program, designed for riders with experience riding at a level of walk-trot-canter or above, was created to further a girl's riding skills while providing her with knowledge of nutritionally sound meal preparation and physical exercise designed for riders.
Riders will receive mounted instruction based on the tenets of hunter seat equitation and attend horsemanship seminars on bandaging, braiding, clipping, vet care, farrier care, and the like. The residential component of the camp will include preparing group meals, exploring the Foxcroft campus, field trips, pool time, and social activities in the dorm.
Space is limited, and previous riding experience is required. Contact Assistant Director of Riding Kendall Bear (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and application materials. The cost of the camp is $1,650, and for those accepted, the camp fee will be due in full by May 31, 2023. Private horses are welcome for an additional fee.
