Summer Camps are back at Bell Mountain Ranch Equestrian Center!

We believe summer camps are the perfect opportunity to introduce young riders to the joy of horses and Our summer camps are perfect for young riders of all experience levels, ages 8-17. Each session is designed for a specific riding level and age, maximizing each student's learning experience, time in the saddle, and attention from our professional training staff. 

This year we are also adding a new camp for our more experienced riders: the IEA Team Camp.
