A horseback journey through the Catskills

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Frost Valley YMCA will not be offering camp programs of any kind this summer. Please read this message from our CEO for more details.

This brand new program is designed for both boys and girls entering grades 8 and above (min age 13) who want to experience an exciting horse trekking adventure through pristine Catskill Mountain trails. Spend full days exploring nature on horseback and cozy nights sitting by the fire reflecting on the day, making memories with new friends, and sleeping under the stars. Riders will have full responsibility for caring for their horse while on the trail. Learn outdoor wilderness skills such as the Leave No Trace Seven Principles© while packing out at campsites. In addition to polishing equestrian skills, there will be plenty of non-horse adventures! This challenging yet fun excursion requires that riders be confident walking/trotting a horse and comfortable in the great outdoors. Participants must have previous riding experience, preferably in Frost Valley’s equestrian programs.
