WOW Camp for 2019
In 2019, we held our 8th Annual WOW Camp. Our camp follows the HPNJ's early July Horse Trials which were held on June 29-30.
Our 2019 WOW camp dates were Monday July 1st with move-in from noon on. Lessons started on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - July 2-3-4. We held special events each evening.
The camp is always open to all, including adults, and all riders can choose a track that suits their interests and abilities. We have a flat track - little to no jumping, a flat/SJ track and the traditional track of dressage/cross country/stadium.
Some campers bring more than one horse. Each year we adjust our schedule and what is offered based on the makeup of our campers.
If you have any questions, contact Cathy Brogan, Regional Supervisor of the NJ Region Pony Clubs (firstname.lastname@example.org) for answers to your questions.
