You are with a family, not in a camp. You participate in the daily life of a working horse farm and horseback riding club. We offer a pressure free learning vacation in a beautiful country setting: The New York State Catskills in the Mid Hudson Valley, 10 miles from Woodstock. Our way of life emphasizes "a healthy mind in a healthy body". We therefore, direct most activities to the outdoors, in order to better enjoy and benefit from our beautiful environment. Guests leave with better physical and mental attitude, than when they arrived. Part of the experience may be trips to Museums in New York City, visits to Historical Re-enactments, canoeing trips to the Adirondacks Mountains, and learning America's history. Our guests will learn and practice horseback riding, fencing, canoeing, archery, camping, hiking, photography and English. Parents are welcome to visit. (Arrangements can be made for their stay).  Visitors must have their own Medical Insurance. Let us know if you have any allergies and/or if you are on medication. Adequate amounts of clothes should be brought. Transportation to and from the United States, and to our home is the responsibility of the parents or guardians. We shall do our utmost to facilitate and assist. img4
