Celtic Cross Equestrian Center’s Spring Training Camp is a 5 Day Interactive Camp where Intermediate Riders can build their knowledge and mounted skills in all aspects of horsemanship.  

On Thursday March 16th from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm we will be performing an exhibition for family and friends of the riders to see what they have learned.  

Riders can be dropped off between 8:00 am - 9:00 am and picked up between 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm, and a sack lunch is provided. We also have drink and snack machines available at the riders expense.  

Riders should be able to walk, trot, and canter as well as be able to focus for a full 8 hour day!  Everyone attending our Spring Training Camp must wear boots with heels and long pants.  We look forward to seeing you at camp.
