Building and Facilities
The Gold Stirrup Academy facilities encompass 17.5 acres equipped with all the comfort you and your family deserve. Everything has been carefully built for your children to have a safe outdoor experience. A group of skilled professionals, with passion for what we do, undertook a major renovation project about a year ago. Our equestrian center has all the building codes for hurricane protection. Everything is fenced to guarantee the safety of your children. We also have a concrete round-pen to facilitate training even during bad weather, an air-conditioned lounge area with Wi-Fi, and a relaxed sitting area to rest your tired feet. It’s the perfect place to savor a cup of coffee, enjoy a snack or simply talk about horses as you enjoy the peaceful view.
We encourage you to mark your child’s personal belongings with his or her name. Gold Stirrup Academy is not responsible for any lost or stolen item. We also suggest campers leave cell phones, trading cards, video games, or any other pricey personal items at home.
Remember dress codes protect your children. Dress must be modest and campers must completely cover:
Children must wear close-toe shoes at all times, preferably boots.
We prefer your children wear pants, no shorts.
Only polo shirts or long sleeve shirts are allowed. No sleeveless shirts, tank tops or spaghetti straps.
Required to wear a hat or baseball cap and sunscreen.
No flip-flops or wet clothing especially around the horses.
If we notice any appearance that is disruptive to the camp environment we will take it to the camp director and address it.
If children don’t comply with Gold Stirrup Academy dress code we will contact the parents immediately and the child will be asked to change clothes as provided by the parent.
