Ivy Rock Farm

We provide camps and equine related programs during the year for adults and children alike. There is a place at Ivy Rock Farms for all types of riders and horse lovers. We sponsor many different programs to get people who loves horses to become a part of something they really enjoy. Below is information on current camps and programs.

The Saddle Club
The Saddle Club is a fun, educational after school program for students who love horses and ponies! At the Saddle Club, kids of all riding experience between the ages of 8 and up, will use equine exploration to engage in activities that build self-confidence and awareness, a sense of responsibility, decision-making skills, and social cooperation. Children are personally greeted off the bus and escorted to our facility, which includes a heated indoor riding arena and work room with vending machines and restroom. Each day a free snack will be provided during the mandatory homework or study hour. After each homework session, students will spend their remaining time participating in various independent and group equine activities related to the horse knowledge theme of the week. Students will learn topics such as equine care and first-aid, breeds, equine behavior, feed and nutrition, equine anatomy, various riding disciplines, and more, all in a safe, positive, supportive and respectful environment. The Saddle Club meets 3 days a week (TBD) after school until 6pm. In the case of severe inclement weather, we relocate to the farm Guest House on the premises. Bus department must be called to arrange drop-off location. School bus drop is on the top of Purdys Lane.

Horsemanship Skills I & Horsemanship Skills II Workshop Sundays
This is a very economical way to explore the first lessons that all horsman must learn. We begin with exploring the basics of grooming, foot care, saddling, and handling horses safely, while on the ground. Students progress to advanced studies like first aid, horse science and anatomy. These workshops are wonderful for parents of riders or adults that wish to expand their education.

Mens Night and Ladies Night
Are you getting back in the saddle? Have you watched your children ride but never dared to jump on yourself? These groups are wonderful for our adult riders. Meeting Monday and Wednesday nights, our adults have an opportunity to ride, have fun, and enjoy the company of other adults. Riders are of all levels and disciplines. It is a super flexible group and you can pop in when it is most convenient for you. Call Alexis for more information.

Team Ivy Rock/ Horse Shows
Local outside horse shows are available to all students and boarders. Those students interested are encouraged to join in. By no means is Ivy Rock a "show barn" that forces students to compete, however many of our students enjoy good competition and love to show off their skills outside the farm. If you are interested in joining the Team, please contact your instructor for information.
Please be aware that all show expenses (ie: trailering to & from show, class entrance fees, horse rental, show clothes, etc.) are the responsibility of the student or parent. Team membership is a $100 yearly fee which includes a team jacket, 3-5 FREE clinics each year, and discounted rental and trailering fee.

Summer Camps
We provide summer camps for adults and children alike. During the week, students will be instructed about all aspects of horsemanship including riding, horse health and management, tack care and cleaning, horse behavior and most importantly SAFETY.

Camp weeks are open to any rider (over age 6, unless they have approval of instructor), discipline, and experience. We try to group campers in the same age range for the same week. Instructors will break the group apart according to discipline and experience for riding but the group will stay together for horsemanship and horse science. This makes it easier for friends to join the same week even if one is more experienced than the other. If you need a specific week due to vacation plans please choose the week(s) that best suite your schedule and we will try accomodate your needs. The first campers that sign up will help depict which week will be for which group.
Long pants and heeled boots are required. We do have a rental stock available but arrangements must be made a week prior to your camp. Safety helmets can be provided for riders. Whinnies and Knickers in Newburgh, NY offers all our riders a discount if you would like to purchase your own helmet but it is not required.
