SJ Riding Facilities
Four Riding Arenas:
SJ Riding Camp has developed an extensive riding facility over the past 60 years and we still
continue to improve upon it! Our 88 acre property includes three enclosed riding arenas with rubber
footing, 3 cross-country areas with over 30 obstacles, a 20+ stall horse barn, and miles of trails.
Each arena is devoted to one discipline of riding. Our Lake Ring is mostly used
for flat work, the
Main Ring serves for a little bit of everything, our Pasture Ring
is home to our show jumping course, and our Dressage Ring is just that!
Our barn has a large tack room and an indoor teaching area with cross-ties that we use for
barn classes like Parts of the Horse, Equine First Aid, and Shoeing and Hoof Care.  Attached
to the barn are 20 standing stalls that lead out into our large paddock area where we groom,
tack up, and hold additional barn classes.

Pasture & Turnout:
Cross-Country Course:
All of our horses live out in the 5-acre pasture with our herd, or live in
individual or small group turnouts.  
The cross-country course encompasses over 30 obstacles throughout
our camp grounds.  The main portion of the course resides in the Overlook
Field next to our lake.  The course includes stone walls, coops, brush
fences, log jumps, and a water ditch.
