Strength and Conditioning Camps

Four-Day Dry Land Training Camps for Equestrians

Equestrians are athletes, and like any athlete can improve their success by dedicating themselves to a well-rounded strength and conditioning program. Join me for an unforgettable four day equestrian dry-land-training-camp consisting of inspiring workshops and workouts. Training camps are open to riders of all ages and fitness levels (anyone who is in shape, or anyone who is a shape is welcome!) Days begin early with a wakeup-workout, team-breakfast and daily briefing followed by workouts, workshops, team-meals, fitness excursions and special evening events.

Please note, camps are horseless so we can focus on our development as athletes.

Workshops and Workouts

Equestrian strength-and-conditioning camps include over 36 hours of workouts and workshops that are as empowering as they are exhausting! Your time at the training camp will include a variety of classes that’ll help you treat and train yourself like an athlete and build your very own fitness program to take back to the barn!

All training camps include:

  • Sport psychology, team-building and leadership workshops
  • Strength and conditioning seminars and workshops
  • Learning the importance of developing rider-specific exercises
  • Building equestrian bootcamps that you can take home to the barn
  • Learning to use mounting blocks, buckets, lead-lines, etc as fitness equipment
  • Understanding the importance of athlete nutrition and building a meal program
  • Injury prevention workshops including warm-up, stretching and care techniques
  • Equestrian yoga, mindfulness and relaxation workshops
  • Exercise excursions including sunrise, stadium and even beach workouts
  • Special evening-events including movie nights and team building classes

Daniel’s rider-specific programs are a must for any serious equestrian. His exercises are a valuable part of the Dartmouth equestrian team and I highly recommend his mental and physical training programs.
