Advanced Camp

The Four Star Farm Advanced Camp is run concurrently with our camping weekend. For the serious competitor, advanced camp includes morning riding sessions (dressage, show jumping and cross country) and afternoon talks tailored to rider interests. Choices include equine nutrition, building show jumping courses, memorizing dressage tests, conditioning, rider fitness and equine body work.

Tuition is $780 for riders with their own horse. The fee includes a $45/day Eventful Acres facility fee that includes a pipe pen. Contact Natalie with questions.

Meals are not included in the camp fee. The charge is $25/day per person and is payable to Sandra Over prior to the trip.

Cross-Country Schooling and Camping Weekend

Run in conjunction with Advanced Camp, for many of us at Four Star Farm, the camping weekend is the highlight activity of the year. Eventful Acres is a beautiful cross-country schooling facility located in Oregon House, northeast of Yuba City and Marysville. Eventful Acres has jumps appropriate for every rider, from first time on a cross-country course, to Preliminary Level.

Bring your horse or lease one of Four Star Farm’s lesson horses for the weekend. Eventful Acres provides a paddock for your horse and space for tent camping, with restrooms and showers included. There are several RVs available through Eventful Acres if you do not wish to tent camp. (Please contact Rod and Karen Hiskens, owners of Eventful Acres, directly to reserve an RV, 530-692-0919.) You can bring your own RV as well.

Meals are not included in the camp fee. The charge is $25/day per person and is payable to Sandra Over prior to the trip.

The weekend also includes a trip to Collins Lake for the best deal on ice cream ever and nearby St. Francis Lake for swimming and fun!

Now you can experience the same camp fun as younger folks but when it works best for your schedule.

Adult camp includes two mounted lessons and two unmounted activities per day. You choose from dressage (basics to advanced movements such as passage and piaffe), show jumping (first time jumping to 1.30 courses) or cross-country other unmounted activities include covering topics such as starting young horses, handling foals, breeding management, walking courses, building courses, sports psychology for the equestrian, test-riding strategies, equine nutrition, conditioning your horse, soundness issues and rehab information, improving your riding with cross-training exercises and SO MUCH MORE!

You’ll love the progress you can make during this intensive format.

The adult camp fee is $175/day, which includes use of a Four Star Farm horse. If you bring your own, stabling is $30 per day.  A $100 deposit is required to reserve.
