Placement Level

Each participant is placed in a skill-building class appropriate to their ability level.

Riding Attire

Bring long jeans for riding; shorts or athletic pants are not permitted. Riding boots or low-heeled shoes are strongly recommended because stirrups cannot be used with flat-bottomed shoes (such as sneakers) and it’s more difficult to ride without stirrups. Open-toe shoes are not permitted. The camp has a few extra pairs of boots available for camper use, but sizes vary. Camp Cherith will provide riding helmets, which all riders are required to wear. You’re welcome to bring your own riding helmet, but bike helmets or other multipurpose helmets are not permitted.
