Who should join us!

Female equestrians who will enter 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the fall of 2019.

Riding disciplines

  • Hunt seat (flat and fences)
  • Western (horsemanship and reining)


Hunt seat riders must be capable of tacking up their own horses, walk, trot, and canter on the flat, and jumping courses of 2'.

Western riders must be capable of tacking up their own horses, walk, jog, and lope, and understand basic horsemanship patterns.

Students will ride twice per day and also attend unmounted lectures on college riding and other college-related topics.



Student Housing

Students will be housed in a residence hall on the Albion College main campus and eat their meals (three per day) in Baldwin Hall, the campus dining facility.

Students will be shuttled to and from campus to the equestrian center each day (a three minute drive).


All riding instruction is given by the coaches of the Albion College equestrian teams; students are supervised in the barn, dining hall, and residence halls by current Albion College student equestrians, who serve as camp counselors.


Albion's Dow Recreation and Wellness Center provides an opportunity for campers to swim and play games after finishing at the equestrian center for the day. All after-hours activities and excursions are closely supervised by camp counselors.
