Bright's Creek Invites Young Bucks to Saddle Up for Equestrian Summer Camp

Looking to harness your kids’ energy now that summer is here? Saddle them up and let them horse around at Equestrian Summer Camp presented at Bright’s Creek, the Mill Spring, North Carolina residential family mountain community.

Led by Samantha Chody, Equestrian Director at Bright’s Creek, the summer camp is open to the public and offers children and teens of all ages and experience levels a fun opportunity to take riding lessons and enjoy spectacular trail rides surrounding Bright’s Creek’s equestrian center, which features 20 acres of lush pasture, an oversized jumping and dressage arena, and 15 miles of breathtaking, well-groomed trails. Chody is an experienced equestrian instructor and trainer, and was the recent winner of the Equus Events Tryon Horse Show in the 1.20 Open Jumper Class.

In addition to trotting amid the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains, campers will enjoy an atmosphere where they can learn the beginning basics or advance their horseback riding skills and expand their horsemanship knowledge through horse education and barn chores. The Bright’s Creek camp itinerary will include lunch each day and time for campers to create equestrian-themed crafts to take home to mom and dad.

Two sessions of the Equestrian Summer Camp will be available, running July 28-31 and August 4-7 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day. The four-day sessions are priced at $175 per camper. To register or learn more about the camp, parents can call Samantha Chody at 828-817-6300.
