Watch the "APPY riders" having fun at THE GATOR HOLE! A cross-county water trap all the campers conquer, because not all horses will walk through water, especially on the trail ride. Our campers and their horses learn to canter through, and cool off while doing it!
I am Rebecca Burns, founder of the original Bridle Paths Summer Camp. I am proud and excited to be active in my dream camp again – after leaving in 2007 for business reasons.
This is my dream horse camp, I designed, implemented and run back in 2006. I have reorganized the company under a NEW NAME, Bridle Paths Summer HORSE Camp, and have negotiated prices with all of our previous vendors, plus some new ones. Prices are available on the Registation page.
I will be personally running the camp, along with STAFF and volunteers.
Improvements include new help, updated meals menu, adaptability to rider and horse during lessons, awesome, highl- qualified instructors that work well with all levels of riders, custom jumps with a Florida flare, special guests and presentations, a wonderful field trip, and more! Here's a look at A TYPICAL DAY AT BP HORSE CAMP. We work hard but have a lot of fun at camp!
THIS CAMP IS FOR BEGINNER THRU ADVANCED RIDERS! We ride clinics 2x per day Mon-Tues-Wed, field trip Thursday with a trail ride in late afternoon, Friday fun event (trail ride, costume contest or other FUN horse activity) before camp breaks! We move our riders into groups based on rider AND horse ability! No one gets left behind…no one!

At Bridle Paths Summer Horse Camp, campers and their mounts are provided with training in several different English riding styles including, show jumping, dressage, hunt seat and cross country. Our riding instructors have been carefully selected to ensure they work effectively and kindly with the camper.
During formal lessons, riding groups are small, personalized and grouped according to riding ability. Campers then come together for late afternoon fun rides, which might include games, trail riding, a desensitization clinic, costume contest or a quad drill.
During the heat of the day, find campers cooling off swimming, doing crafts under a canopy of grand-daddy oak trees, or relaxing in one of the air conditioned cabins. Swimming with manatees at beautiful Crystal River takes place on our Thursday Field trip. In the evening the campers enjoy team-building activities, watch movie or share memories of their day by the campfire.
At Bridle Paths we take pride in providing a safe and fun filled summer where campers have the opportunity to learn and grow, develop new accomplishments in a non-competitive atmosphere and develop new friendships and camaraderie.
