Summer Riding Experience

Enter the fascinating world of horses by joining our summer program. We are excited for you to join our staff as well as our horses and ponies.

Beginners will learn the fundamentals of horse care as well as the basics of English riding. Intermediate and advanced riders will learn the skills they need to further their riding education.

Proper Attire

Every student must wear the following:

  • T-Shirt With Some Type of Sleeve

Beginner/Intermediate Riding Experience

Cost: $300
Time: 8:30AM – 12:30PM

Riders are grouped according to ability, and we only accommodate 12 individuals per week. Since each session is limited, early sign-ups are encouraged.

Riders will spend the early hours in the saddle learning about the hunt seat equitation. After the hands-on lessons, light snacks will be provided. The remaining time will be spent on unmounted instruction.

We have two large indoor arenas so the weather presents no problem.

Advanced Week

Cost: $425
Time: 8:30AM – 2:00PM (Includes Field Trips)

Please note that advanced riding is for individuals who can walk, trot, canter, and jump small courses. If you do not ride regularly at our facility or with one of our instructors, please contact us before signing up so we can discuss whether you qualify for our advanced program.

This class is a great option for riders who are currently participating or planning to join schooling or rated shows. Riders will learn to become more comfortable with traveling and spending a long time in the saddle.

Students in the Advanced Week program are required to bring their own lunch.
