Summer Programs

Summer Riding Academy


The Summer Riding Academy at Salko Farm is an unforgettable summer experience.  Each session is an intensive five-day immersion in horses.  Our goal is to enrich each of our participant's riding ability. In addition to this, each participant will be taught horsemanship, riding fitness including yoga,  and many other things. Each day provides a balance between riding, stable management, and fun horse-related activities.  We only accept a limited number of children each week so that each child receives a personalized and safe experience.   


Information for next year's academy will be posted in January, 2021. 




CIT Program


Each week our counsellors in training will be assisting in all aspects of our riding program. They will help with lessons, tacking, teaching horsemanship and organizing daily activities. All CITs will ride on Fridays during game day.  


CITs must have basic horse knowledge and be comfortable around horses. CITs must be at least 12 years of age or entering the 6th grade.
