Where: Eventful Acres

http://www.eventfulacres.net

A 35-acre equestrian facility in Oregon House, CA in the the beautiful rural Sierra

Foothills. Long-time owners, Rod and Karen Hisken offer a 2.5 acre sand arena

(w/full-sized dressage arena and show jumping arena), several hundred cross

country jumps from introductory through preliminary level, and a wonderful

educational progression between levels for both horse and rider.

Who: All D3, C or higher members of USPC.

• Minimum age is 12 years (as of 6/21/2017) - no exceptions unless cleared

with C Camp Organizer prior to registering.

• If you are a well-mounted, confident and strong D3, perhaps you have loved

(the awesome, fabulous) SCCPC D Camp but are ready for a little more,

and/or you are prepping for your C1 - then C Camp is for you.

• If following the eventing track, rider and mount together must be comfortable

and safe riding and jumping in the open (including trotting or cantering cross

country fences).

• If you meet the age and riding level above but are new to PC, and perhaps

not yet certified at D3 or above, please contact the organizer to discuss

participation.

What does C Camp feel like?

Not a rally, more akin to a clinic. A high standard of C-level horse management is

expected, but there are no HM judges, no scores, no competition.

You get to:

• Camp with your best equine and PC friends. Meet new friends.

• Ride in the morning (except evaluation rides on Wednesday afternoon, after

lunchtime arrival),

• After lunch, head to the lake for swimming and ice cream, or hang out and

take a nap!

• Hack around the property with your PC friends after dinner.

• Hang out with your fellow C Campers on the cross country course at dusk for

flashlight tag or other teen hangout social time.

Work on your training goals (or challenges). Participants will summarize their

personal goals (at Wednesday evaluation ride) and review them with instructors

again at the end of the clinic. If you are looking to move up a level in any

discipline, C Camp is the perfect opportunity with fabulous instructors to help you

progress.

What does C Camp expect of you?

Bring your best attitude and be ready to try new things, prepare to be challenged,

to improve and to have fun!

Respect your instructors by showing up on time for every ride with:

• Clean and tidy USPC C-level casual attire, including:

• Collared/polo shirt

• Tidy Hair (at least pony tail or braid, hairnet or tucked in helmet preferred)

• Breeches w/belt

• Tall boots (brown or black, or paddock boots w/same color half chaps)

• All mandatory required USPC safety equipment (including armband or ID

bracelet, helmet for all disciplines, plus protective vest for cross country)

• Mount well groomed (no shavings in tail, no manure stains)

• Tack that is clean and meets USPC safety check standards

Save the environment: bring re-usable camping plate, bowl, cup, utensils for

meals. All campers (riders, parents, chaperones, drop-in guests) will wash up

after each meal and leave items to dry at kitchen area for next meal (hint:

labelling your stuff will help here....)

Chaperones:

Each C Camp participant must have an adult chaperone on site for all four days

of the camp. The chaperone duty may be shared by two or more adults. For

example one parent/adult brings two riders and stays for two days, then hands

off to another parent/adult for the remaining two days (with no time gap in

between). Please make your chaperone duty plans extremely clear to the

organizer. In a time sensitive emergency we need to know who is the duty

chaperone at any given time. Each chaperone can take responsibility for up to

four riders. Riders who are 18+ years can drive themselves and do not need a

chaperone.

 

Camp Participant Fee:

All inclusive fee of $460 payable to MidCal Region USPC - includes 4 days of

instruction, stabling, camping facilities, 3 meals a day - Wednesday dinner to

Saturday lunch, hay and shavings and a whole bunch of fun and memories!
