VALLEY VIEW RANCH EQUESTRIAN CAMP -- CLOUDLAND, GEORGIA –



Horse lovers’ paradise since 1954! A'top Lookout Mountain, for 50 girls, 8-17; 1 to 9 weeks, 600 acres, English, Western, Barrels, Vaulting, and Trails. CHA instructors teach beginner to advanced riders. Spend 4-6 hours daily with your OWN camp horse. The Jones family are third generation horse lovers, camp administrators, and equine educators making girls dreams come true!



HUNT SEAT Equitation is taught under CHA professional instruction, as are all Valley View riding programs. A separate Hunt Ring and barn, and specially schooled horses are available to all girls, beginner to advanced. Classes are arranged according to riding ability and incorporated into her Ranch program. Beginners learn to post first, and then do ground poles and cavelettes. As a rider gains confidence, she will practice equitation over fences in the ring and out in the field. Bring your own horse and enjoy a new companionship amid our mountain scenery.



STOCK SEAT

Stock Seat is Western Equitation. Each rancher has tryouts and is assigned a horse for her stay according to her ability. You can also bring your own horse. Our foundation is built on years of raising Quarter Horses, but we also offer other breeds and colors. Experienced CHA instructors teach equitation and pleasure riding in the Brow Ring. Challenges increase with reining patterns, trail classes, and bareback equitation. Lessons plus time in the saddle on trails, build each camper's confidence, security in the saddle, and communication with her horse.



PONY CLUB

The Pony Club is our special program for younger campers. They have their own horse, their own barn, tack room, and instructors. The Pony Club has beginner to advanced horses and riders. These girls can participate in all programs offered to older campers, and some created especially for them according to their ability. They learn to halter, groom, bridle and saddle, ride, and cool out their mount. Lessons, gymkhana, and trail rides are planned and supervised by our experienced professional CHA staff. Individualized programs are essential for the younger camper's varied attention span, interests, and safety.



BARRELS - GYMKHANA

Training in Barrels teaches the horse and rider to work together as a precision unit. Our Certified Instructors teach the rider to use her head, hands, seat, and legs to communicate with her mount. Gymkhana games in the Rodeo Ring offer a challenge to all ranchers of all ages and levels. Events start simply with cloverleaf, hairpin, Georgia barrels, and stake race. With practice and coordination between horse and rider, classes advance to quarter horse ability, pole bending, and cross-country rodeo patterns.
