Choose from Four Options

  • $225 for a horseback-riding day camp from June 25 to June 29 for one child aged 7–12 (a $450 value)
  • $225 for a horseback-riding day camp from July 9 to July 13 for one child aged 7–12 (a $450 value)
  • $225 for a horseback-riding day camp from July 16 to July 20 for one child aged 7–12 (a $450 value)
  • $15 for a two-hour pony adventure for one child aged 5–7 (a $30 value)

During the pony adventure, up to six pintsize riders can orient themselves to a four-footed friend by learning to ride, feed, and groom a pony and participating in fun arts and crafts. Because this experience is designed as a stepping stone into the lesson program, no special gear is required.

During day horse camps (available for 9 a.m.–5 p.m. sessions from June 25 to July 20), young campers build practical horsemanship skills during daily riding lessons and instruction on grooming, horse care, and equipment care. In between learning techniques and theory, campers let loose with age-appropriate games both on and off their steeds and burn off steam with activities such as nature hikes and cooking. Ponies are available for younger campers, and pegasi are available for imaginary friends.

Mark West Stables

Virginie Richard, a devout equine enthusiast, opened Mark West Stables more than two decades ago to share her love of horses with students of all ages. She knew she had accomplished her goal when her former student Megan Hernandez came on to work alongside her and instruct new generations of riders.

Together, the two tend to boarded steeds and teach custom lessons in english hunter/jumper-style riding to students of all ages and skill levels, even former riders who want to knock the rust off their old stirrups or horse-shaped motorcycles. Along with lessons, Virginie and Megan offer monthly training programs that supplement tailored instruction with lessons in horse care such as blanketing, medicating, vet appointments, and haircare. During the summer, they also lead fun-filled camps and activities for younger riders.
