This is an an INTRO Level and Young Rider camp! Have you never shown dressage? No? Perfect! We can teach you how do do intro and training level tests! Have you done them and would like to improve your scores? We can give you instruction that will really sink in and help long-term! Maybe you might not ever want to show dressage but would still like your youth rider getting experience and confidence riding their horse and being able to walk, trot and canter a round circle and straight lines? All of these reasons means this is the camp for you! We have availability on our horses for riders who are at least good independent trotters. Have your own horse? You may haul them in! Please contact Leslie to sign up! 253-802-2342. Located in Enumclaw, WA at The Back Forte Equestrian Center.
