3) High Quality Horses
In addition, campers improve their riding skills on high quality horses and ponies who are kept in the care of Christie's trusty Northfork staff all year long. They are used for riding lessons, clinics, and are ridden by the Michigan State Equestrian Team. All of these activities keep them in shape and well-mannered. Many of the horses come to Northfork with histories of winning show careers. Camp horses are selected carefully to ensure safety and to help create positive experiences for their riders and handlers.
