Adult Immersion Retreat Camp

$2,200Purchase required to enroll
Do you want to go to an all inclusive sleep away camp?

The best way to learn to ride, is to immerse yourself in riding. Come ride with us in lessons, game nights and sunset trail rides and really immerse yourself in the world of horseback riding while spending each night in a Glamping Yurt on Seneca Lake and eating fantastic chef crafted meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The program offers one horse per adult and includes four hours of mounted instruction daily as well as lectures. You may also bring your own horse at no cost.*

Prior experience is not necessary - just motivation to learn, the sense of adventure in doing something different, the willingness to work hard and the stamina and wit to put it all together. Whether you are a gutsy and athletic novice rider or a seasoned equestrian, we will help you hone your skills through a variety of lessons, lectures, games, trail rides and on-the-ground training with our horses culminating in an all day trek into the National Forest. We will help you master the biomechanics of horseback riding and give you life-long skills that will take you to the places you wish to go.

At camp, our "campers" will all be split into various groups based on their skills and natural abilities:
  • Gusty Novice riders will get a primer on riding, helping them to not only understand riding not just by how to execute cues, but why those cues work and how to properly communicate with their mount.
  • More seasoned riders will be given opportunities to really strengthen their abilities and problem-solve their weaknesses while developing an in-depth understanding of the biomechanics of both the horse and the human and how they sync in harmony.

We are partnering with Plum Point Lodge for this amazing opportunity for adults of all levels to come and learn to ride while being catered to in an all inclusive experience. This camp is all inclusive of housing, meals and riding.

  • Each day you will eat breakfast at the Plum Point Lodge and then be shuttled to our stables where you will partake in either a riding lesson or trail ride, followed by a relevant seminar lecture over a picnic basket lunch.
  • After lunch you will be shuttled back to your yurt where you can either rest, relax, and stretch your sore muscles, or head out to explore the Finger Lakes region and the Seneca Wine Trail.
  • In the evening you will return to the stables where you will partake each evening in a trail ride, a game night, or a moonlight trailride. Each evening you will have a culinary dinner specially prepared for you at Sapalta, the farm-to-table restaurant at Plum Point.
  • On the last day, you will go on an all-day riding adventure through the Finger Lakes National Forest and receive a banquet feast afterwards back at the lodge.

  • Single - $2200 per single
  • Couple - $3400 per couple sharing a yurt

  • Commuter Rate: $1375 per person

  • Evening Only Rate (M-Th): $400

Please email us if you are a Couple, Commuter or Evening Only rider and we will pro-rate your registration to the appropriate cost.

* Note: For those bringing their own horses we will offer box stall board with pelleted bedding and hay. Please plan to bring your own grain pre-bagged with any supplements into twice daily AM and PM feedings. Because we turnout in large herd turnout, turnout for guest horses will not be available. Please make sure that your horse is fit enough to complete at least 4 hours of riding per day and a 15-20 mile all-day ride for the final day.
If your horse is unable to ride either due to exhaustion from lack of fitness, behavioral issues or lameness, we can provide you one of our horses to ride instead. In that case, you would need to pay $15 daily board per day for your horse while it is not being used during camp.
Cancellation policy Cancellation with full refund is allowed until 2 week before the start of camp.
After then, refund is only given if we are able to fill the place in the camp session.
