Foxcroft School Opens Registration for 2019 Equestrian Camp

Top-tier training, facilities, and fun to highlight June 23-28 residential camp for girls

Foxcroft School, whose outstanding riding program is known across the U.S., recently announced it will hold a week-long residential equestrian camp for girls June 23-28, 2019.
The camp, open to experienced riders going into the 8th through 11th grades, will be held on Foxcroft’s beautiful 500-acre campus in Middleburg, VA, which boasts a large indoor arena as well as multiple outdoor rings and trails. Participants will get a taste of being a “Foxcroft rider” by experiencing top-tier training with Foxcroft Director of Riding Kate Worsham and her staff, getting to know its excellent facilities and school horses, and staying in a Foxcroft dormitory.

Daily mounted hunter seat, equitation-based riding lessons on well-trained school horses will be complemented by horsemanship sessions and a fitness program designed especially for riders. Campers will also take part in cooking and nutrition classes for athletes and enjoy free time at Foxcroft’s outdoor swimming pool and other recreational facilities.

Space for the Foxcroft School Equestrian Camp is limited and previous riding experience is required. Please contact Deborah Anderson (deborah.anderson@foxcroft.org) for more information and application materials.
