HORSEBACK RIDING PROGRAM
Our summer equestrian experience, founded in 1924, has grown and expanded. We boast a top-notch, thirty-two stall barn, accompanied by three outdoor arenas, nestled neatly in the back of the camp facility. An extensive network of trails near and inside camp provide children with an opportunity to relax outside the daily teachings within the ring.
CJ Law, of Mount Holyoke College, has been the director of our outstanding equestrian program for 34 years. Her staff and horses from Mount Holyoke College provide a program offering lessons, shows, horsemanship, and so much more. In addition to her staff, C.J. is responsible for the quality of horses that lie at the heart of the riding program. Many of the school horses are brought from Mount Holyoke College and spend their summer at camp. The horses are capable of catering to a brand new rider or the rider who is accustomed to extremely competitive riding. A number of the horses are talented show horses. The horses are safe and friendly, and children form close attachments to their counter parts.
The nature and diversity of instruction at the two camps is of superior quality. The main focus and background of instructors and campers tends to be of the hunter and jumper discipline. However, a focus on equitation, dressage, combined training, and stable management is stressed in daily learning, as well. Campers flock to the barn, with nearly 40% of campers riding and taking advantage of our prestigious program.
