In order to ensure the best quality and safety of all NEW Equidream students, we do require one half hour test ride to evaluate riding level. This will also help the beginner to better benefit in their camp experience. The test fee is $50. Please include the test fee with your deposit. Also please call 847-526-6320 to arrange a time for the test ride.
Not only can you host a birthday party at Equidream, but we host several team building events throughout the year at our barn. Some examples of these events include: Schooling shows, Equidream Olympics, barbeques, boarder lessons, Halloween party, and more!
