WEASELSKIN EQUESTRIAN PENTATHLON CENTER  

Details about Weaselskin Camp Summer 2015

Why Weaselskin? 

The obvious: The athletes will be benefiting from training in the sports in different venues, with different opponents, and learning about  riding and horsemanship methods.

The not so obvious: The life/training lessons that differentiates and ultimately makes the top athlete.

What is expected of campers

Each day will entail normal farm chores, and the campers will be having to maintain their own house keeping etc... but many hands make for light work and when they all pitch in we can finish quickly and get more riding/training and fun in.
