Showmanship Camp is a program designed to introduce riders to the responsibilities and fun of attending and participating in a horse show. Each week the riders focus on preparing themselves and their horses for a show and will learn horse grooming, braiding, clipping; tack turn-out; rider attire and preparation; how to ride for a judge; what to take to the show for horse and rider, budgeting for a show and so forth. At the end of each session, riders are encourages to participate in a local horse show under the supervision of Meadowbrook Staff (please note that costs for the horse show would be in addition to the showmanship Camp fee).
