Maplewood's Adult Ride and Whine Camps have become legendary in the equestrian world and attract campers from across the country and Canada! Activities include riding, dining, wine tasting, personal fitness training, sports nutrition, the latest fashion trends for equestrians, educational seminars on conformation and judging, secrets to success in the show ring, and much more.

This fun and educational retreat is open to adults of all ages, riding abilities, professionals and amateurs alike. The common denominator attendees must have is that they want to learn and have a good time!

Activities include but aren't limited to:

  • Daily riding instruction in small groups of similar ability
  • Trail rides
  • Educational presentations from specialists in their fields
  • Meals and wine
  • Party bus excursions to Virginia City and Lake Tahoe
  • Personal fitness training and nutrition education

Camps run Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon, and you may bring your horse or lease one of our wonderful mounts. The total cost is $1,500. To ensure the highest levels of education and fun, there is a strict 12-person limit.

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due upon registration, and the balance is due for the spring camp on February 1 and for the fall camp on September 1.

If there are spaces remaining after full balances are due on February/September 1, the cost will be $2,500. The entire payment would then be due upon registration.

Children's Summer camp - July 11-14

Maplewood Summer Camps involve many fun activities in addition to plenty of riding time. From learning to groom and tack up their horses, our campers also enjoy learning about horse care, anatomy, equine behavior, tack, equipment and much more.

In addition, campers spend time on arts and crafts projects, swimming and other fun activities.

Lessons are split into groups, so there are opportunities for all levels of riders—from beginners to more advanced—to learn new skills and ride with campers of similar ability.

Camp runs Wednesday-Saturday rom 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Friday, which is an overnight camp-out. The cost is $750. A non-refundable deposit of $250 must be received before space will be reserved. Please send a check to: Maplewood Inc., 425 W. Laramie Dr., Reno, NV 89521.
