We have a very diverse herd including
Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds, Arabians
and Warmbloods of all ages and backgrounds
(we even have some horses who used to be
Western horses!). Each horse is evaluated
every summer and assigned to an appropriate
riding level.
If you are interested in taking home a horse during our off-season, please take a look at our
information on
borrowing.  We occasionally have horses for sale as well.  You can see what horses
are available for borrowing or that are for sale
Our horses work hard every summer to teach many girls
to ride and love horses so
after camp we place each
horse into a family or schooling environment for the
. Some horses get the time off and can
go home with a student who just wants to trail ride while
others are still developing their skills and are placed with
students who are actively working with a trainer or instructor
on specific goals that we outline beforehand. Please keep
this in mind for your riding plans during the school year as
this can be a valuable experience in horse ownership and

Our horses are hand-selected to be quiet, reliable, educated
school masters and most of our horses are with us for life!

They are an integral part of our program and we go to great
lengths to make sure they are happy and healthy.
Every horse at camp spends as much time as
possible out in pasture with his buddies. This
makes sure that our horses have plenty of time to
relax, graze, or play with friends so that when they
go to work, they are happy and well-rested.  
Most of our horses live with the herd out in the
pasture while others live alone (but close to other
horses) or in small groups in turnout areas.
