Fox Ridge Farm, an equestrian facility located in the southwest corner of Newtown, is hosting day camp for young riders, ages 4 and up, who are looking to start or improve their horseback riding skills.

Owner and head trainer of Fox Ridge Farm, Pat Gregory says that the farm has been offering camp for 17 years and in addition to riding lessons, the program includes grooming the horses, taking trail rides, and many other horse-related activities.

The camp will be offered in the spring, from April 16 through 20, as well as in the summertime, from June 25 through August 5 (excluding the week of the Fourth of July). Sessions run as half-days, from 9 am to noon, or full-days, from 9 am to 3 pm.

Ms Gregory says that those who attend camp will need long pants and a shoe with a small heel.
Registration is currently open and ends the Friday before the weekly session. Half-day camp sessions are $325 per camper, and full-day camp sessions are $650 per camper.
