Farr Park Equestrian Center Camps
ATTENTION PARENTS: As you know, summer camp registration opens this weekend. In an effort to allow more EBR children to experience our horse camp, we’re limiting registration to 1 session per child for the summer. So if you have 3 children, they can each attend 1 week of horse camp this summer. Our camp tends to fill up pretty quickly and we want to make sure we provide as many people as possible with an opportunity to join us for camp. If you have any questions about our camp, give us a call at 225-769-7805
HORSE LOVER'S CAMP

When registering, be sure to enroll in the proper age group and style of riding.
