Horseback-riding lessons accommodate guests of all skill levels and riding styles, from complete beginners to advanced dressage or event competitors. Students can set off on a leisurely trail ride or ask for a full-body workout, and those who feel slightly skittish around horses might opt for a slow, confidence-building session.
During summer camp, ages 6-and-up absorb teachings on riding techniques, safety, gear, and grooming. Training and veterinary demonstrations offer an intimate glance into equine life, and daily arts and crafts promote creativity out of the saddle. The four-to-one ratio of campers to staff ensures close and personalized supervision. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., July 2 to August 31. Click here for more information.
A Bit of Luck Farm
Noemi Wilson-Debriano unfortunately couldn't fit her horses into the suitcase when she left to earn her degrees in animal sciences and psychology at Delaware Valley College. To make up for the lack of four-hoofed companions in her life, she traveled from door to door to find horse owners who needed help training and showing their steed, channeling the riding expertise she had honed since age 6. The same tenacity led her to purchase her own farm after graduation, where she and her staff now board and educate equines against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery. They recognize that horses have distinct personalities and modes of communication with their riders, helping both human and animal establish strong connections. During lessons, her staff leads beginners and advanced riders alike through tailored routines that outline horse behavior and physiology as well as cover saddle-striding form. They open their farm doors to patrons of all stripes, ranging from those who mean to trot for pleasure to those who aim to unfairly dominate the next season of The Amazing Race.
The farm cultivates a quiet environment of total acceptance and calm, welcoming all breeds to the barn. They customize their boarding services to suit each horse's temperament and training regimen. A team of vets, chiropractors, massage therapists, and nutritionists on the verge of engineering apple-flavored hay tend to hoofed tenants for the duration of their stay.
