PETIT GALOP Granny Fox Farm ~ Goshen, New York
Here's what parents have said about our
We strive to develop true "horsmen" - not simply riders.
Our horsemanship programs and riding camp for children are offered
YEAR-ROUND! Our SUMMER Equestrian Riding Camp and WEEKEND
Horsemanship Program are designed for horse enthusiasts who are ready to
experience both the joy and the responsibility of having their own horse.
We also offer a WINTER Recess Riding Camp & AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM.
Each camper is assigned a horse or pony of their own to ride, care for
and love. Riding programs are taught by caring professionals and are
individually tailored to each rider’s specific area of interest. Whatever your
riding goals may be- to compete in horse shows or to simply enjoy a leisurely
trail ride through the countryside - our equestrian camp programs will help you
Through thoughtful, in-depth instruction in riding, hands-on horse care and
stable management children gain true horsemanship skills and are able to
experience a more rewarding and meaningful relationship with horses.
Our goal is to instill a sense of accomplishment and responsibility while having
fun in a safe, nurturing environment. Each student is sure to make great new
friends, build confidence, measurably improve her riding skills and gain a
deeper respect, understanding and appreciation for horses and nature. (Learn
"Our daughter Gillian is 10 and had never been to sleep
away camp. We appreciated the high level of cleanliness,
the level of supervision (both on and off the horses), the
quality of the horses and top condition of the tack, and the
good food and meals -- served family style. Even the
non-equine events were good experiences. We plan to
return to Petit Galop this summer. It is a great program for
children that love horses and the outdoors!"
"Our twins love it so much they would like to move there.
They forgo traditional birthday parties to have a weekend
there in the spring. This riding camp is very special and
lovely and the kids simply love it. It is small and it is
focused on horses so if you are looking for a traditional
camp with lots of campers and other activities, this may not
be for your daughter. If your daughter loves being around
horses, playing with them, feeding them, taking care of them
and riding them she will love it. "
"We had a perfect experience at Petit Galop.
Delia, who was only eight last summer and had never been
to sleepaway camp, was scheduled for two weeks and
stayed for four. She was ecstatic about her experience -
learned about taking care of horses and their different
personalities, made great progress in her riding, loved the
family feeling of the camp. She took pride in her
responsibilities, and genuinely knows a huge amount about
horses and their behavior. She is begging to go for the
whole summer this year.
We feel absolutely blessed to have found the camp.
All best, Nan "
