It's all about the riding!
Camp life revolves around the horses. In addition to TWO rides daily, campers participate in stable management, grooming challenges, painted pony contest (we actually PAINT the ponies), and much more! Most of our program options even have a horsey theme.
On the first day, campers are lunged (horse is held on a long line) so they can be evaluated on their ability or taught basics without having to worry about control. Based on this evaluation, camper are grouped into classes by riding ability to ensure they get the most out of their lessons. Our dedicated, talented riding instructors are committed to providing fun and educational riding lessons. Advanced riders will build on their existing skills, have the opportunity to go on hacks, prepare for showing and even jump some cross country fences! Beginners will confidently learn riding basics through lunge work, games and small lesson sizes. By the end of a two week session, a non-rider will often be able to walk, trot, canter and even jump small fences.
Our riding lesson class size is a maximum of 6 for advanced riders and a maximum of 4 for beginners. All classes are taught by a qualified instructor and beginner classes have an additional assistant, making the ratio is 2:1.
Raynham Stables believes that stable management is imperative to producing safe, well-rounded riders. Our specially designed stable management program is broken down into levels that will challenge riders of all abilities. Information is learned through games and activities and allows campers the opportunity to achieve a new level each session.
