Casual riding is not offered. In addition to lesson programs, Danada offers Camp Danada: Spring Break, Camp Danada:  Winter Break, and 10 weeks of summer camp. These camps introduce campers ages 10 to 14 to the daily activities of a working barn and include interaction with horses, plus horse-related arts, crafts, and games.
