GVDS Youth Camp


GVDS Youth Camp

New for 2024!  Grand Valley Dressage Society (GVDS) is offering a three-day day camp for youth aged 9-18.  

It will be held at the Mesa County Fairgrounds on June 24-26, 9 AM – 4 PM. 

Cost for all three days is $75.

The camp will be centered around horse management skills such as groundwork, basic horse care, equine first aid, braiding, bandaging, grooming, appropriate turnout for horse and rider. It’s all about learning to be the best horse owner or horse caregiver you can be.  But this camp is also about enjoying your ponies or horses.  Afternoons will be dedicated to riding games or group lessons on a variety of topics.

A horse is needed for this camp.  The $75 entry fee pays for a day stall for your horse and breakfast for the camper.  Campers need to bring a sack lunch.  Several local dressage professionals and GVDS members are donating their time and talents to this camp experience, so it will be packed with educational activities and fun.

Parents can volunteer as chaperones or lunch providers. This volunteer time can be donated to your child for necessary volunteer hours to qualify for GVDS Year-End Awards.  To learn more about volunteering and to help, see Sign-Up:
