During five-hour camps from 8 a.m.–1 p.m., aspiring equestrians ages 5–18 learn to become responsible riders by immersing themselves in every aspect of horsemanship and husbandry. After receiving a tour of the Witte Stables barn, kids learn the basics of horse grooming and don the provided helmets for a hands-on horseback-riding lesson. The day may also include lessons from local working veterinarians if available and talks from guest speakers.

Witte Stables

It’s often hard to get siblings to agree on anything, but for more than 30 years, Peter and Susan Witte have been united by a powerful bond: their shared passion for horses. During that time, Peter has trained and shown national and regional champion steeds, while Susan—who began riding at the age of three—serves as a licensed United States Equestrian Foundation judge in the Arabian horses division. As the co-owners and head trainers of Witte Stables, the Wittes pass on their horseback-riding experience with the help of several amateur equestrians. In an outdoor Scottsdale riding arena, the staff trains riders of all experience levels in both the saddle- and hunt-seat disciplines, pairing lessons in riding technique with an emphasis on proper care and handling. Though beginners learn to sit upright and communicate with the horses’ secretaries, more advanced students hone their showmanship skills for high-level competition.

In a Nutshell

Five-hour sessions teach horsemanship basics to young equestrians through barn tours and riding and grooming lessons
