Riding camp is designed for 4–6 middle and high school girls to develop horsemanship and trail-riding skills while exploring mountains and ranch lands of Wyoming. Campers bond with each other and their horses, experiencing the beauty of immersion in the natural world. Teamwork, leadership skills, and building positive relationships are emphasized throughout the camp experience. Please fill out a Youth Camp Application to begin the enrollment process.
Campers are responsible for caring for their horses, grooming, saddling, tying knots, etc. and these skills are part of the learning experience at camp. Each group will explore beautiful backcountry routes with opportunities to lead other riders, overcome challenging obstacles, and work closely with our horses. Outdoor skills including map reading, hiking, campfire cooking, and fly-fishing are woven into the experience. Campers learn about ranching, Western history, and local ecology while out on the trail.
Riding camp is based at Big Creek Ranch, the historic working cattle operation and sister ranch to A Bar A in southern Wyoming. Camp is led by a team of experienced horse-women and A Bar A Expeditions Wranglers. Additionally, Boys’ Camp Expeditions guides join the group to lead hikes and fly-fishing adventures.
Basic riding experience is required, but learning is a big part of the camp experience for riders of all levels.
