Treat your kids to an equine experience they’ll never forget.

Does your son or daughter love horses?

Why not nurture that love? We offer intensive riding weeks for students under 18 at all experience levels—not just for summer but also for spring and winter breaks.

Each day kids get to ride, both in the ring and through the woods. We also tailor activities to their experience level as well as age range. For example, if they are more experienced they might w!ork on jumping, while we teach newcomers walking and trotting on the lunge line.

Your child will have lots of fun making new friends (both two-legged and furry) while getting plenty of fresh air and exercise.
