Equitrekking Launches First Ever International Guide to Camps for Equestrians

February 18, 2015

Emmy-winning TV show expands digital resources for families interested in equestrian camps, children’s programs at dude ranches and riding holidays for families and kids with the Equitrekking Horse Camps Guide and Top20HorseCamps.com.

Equitrekking today announced the first-ever online guide dedicated exclusively to equestrian camps both in the USA and around the world. The Equitrekking Horse Camps Guide features top equestrian camps, kids’ programs at dude ranches, family camps with an equestrian focus and riding holidays for kids—resources to help young riders and adults plan educational adventures focused on horseback riding. The team also debuted Top20HorseCamps.com showcasing some of the most elite equestrian camps for younger riders.

Camps featured include a Colorado summer camp that welcomes unaccompanied youth to ride the Rocky Mountains and learn horse care, an equestrian camp that for over twenty years has hosted global teens on a generations-old Irish horse farm in Tipperary, a North Carolina summer camp where kids learn traditional hunt seat riding with the University of South Carolina Equestrian Team's horses and beyond. Camps cater to all skill levels and varied disciplines including Dressage, cross country, Western style riding, show jumping and horse show experiences.

“It was at summer camp in the mountains of North Carolina when I was first introduced to horses and learned to ride. Little did I know that I would turn a childhood passion into a lifelong career,” said Equitrekking host and creator Darley Newman, who has been riding the world since 2007 and filming the adventures for the Emmy-winning Equitrekking TV show. “Equitrekking’s new horse camp guides serve as a resource for horse-crazy kids and their parents. We’re populating the guides with quality camps where kids can get introduced to equestrian sports, learn to ride, unplug and explore nature on trail rides, and enjoy the life-changing and inspiring journey that is camp.”

While some camps welcome riders to stay up to a week, others offer a family camp experience, where kids and their parents may travel and enjoy camp together. Many camps feature range of activities including archery, swimming, the arts, hockey, basketball and beyond and are accredited by leading organizations including the American Camp Association, The International Camping Fellowship and Certified Horsemanship Association.

A pioneer in the field of equestrian travel and travel television, Equitrekking’s new guides are modeled after Equitrekking’s current popular resources for travelers who want to saddle up on vacation. These include Top20Ranches.com, the Equitrekking Vacation Guide, Equitrekking Travel Deals and EquitrekkingTravel.com. The sites help visitors to research and plan vacations with a riding focus, as far afield at Jordan and Botswana and as close to home as Ireland, Wyoming and Vermont. Travelers can book directly with small, family-owned tour operators or book through Equitrekking Travel’s equestrian travel agent specialist.
