Thurs 8/28 – Sun 9/1

The State of Jefferson chapter wishes to invite the ADULT AMATEUR of any level to experience the ultimate immersion of dressage in beautiful southern Oregon. The goal of our camp is to give riders an opportunity to “camp out” with their equine as well as equestrian friends. The opportunity to accelerate the learning process in theory as well as practice several times daily will greatly expand the rider’s knowledge and confidence.
