$159 for One Week of Horsemanship Adventure Series ($325 Value)

The Horsemanship Adventure Series takes place Monday–Friday of each week from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Choose from the following weeks:

  • June 17–21
  • July 15–19
  • July 22–26
  • August 5–9
  • August 12–16

Each child will be assigned their own horse or pony, with instructors covering rider safety and basic grooming and helping pupils to mount, dismount, and control the animal while in the saddle. The school loans helmets for free, but riders must wear their own hard-soled shoes with a heel, and the stables recommend that riders wear riding pants or jeans and chaps or half chaps for comfort. A drink and afternoon snack are provided, but students should bring their own lunch.

Clay Hill Stables

Since founding Clay Hill Stables in 1964, British Horse Society–certified instructor Emmie Prettyman has passed her vast equine expertise on to legions of horses and their riders through a variety of services. Emmie captains a team of instructors certified to teach the English style of riding as well as administer first aid and CPR, ensuring safe and sound lessons for students as young as 6. Beginner classes work to establish fundamentals both on and off the saddle, including riding positions and basic grooming and tacking. Once riders have demonstrated proficiency at the paces of walk, trot, and canter, they may be eligible for the jumping work in the intermediate/advanced class, where they build on skills with more intricate flatwork and jumping exercises, as well as have the opportunity for trail rides and horse shows.

Customer Reviews

Great price, instructor, and friendly horses.
Luicana T. · November 7, 2016
They were all so nice. I had a hard time finding the place the owner came and met me to take me there. So very kind and friendly. My daughter loved it.
Zora F. · August 8, 2015
It was a lot of work reserving a spot but it was well worth it . My group was kind of large so I thought we weren't going to be able to do a lot in an hour . The instructor broke us up into two groups so we would be able to actually ride the horses
