Seaton Hackney Stables - Horse Riding Programs and Camp
SEATON HACKNEY HORSEBACK RIDING PROGRAMS AND SUMMER CAMP
SUMMER 2020: Seaton Hackney Stables has created a Mini Equestrian Camp for ages 5 to 17 yrs old. Each Mini Camp will be limited to 5-6 riders with its own "home base" and dedicated staff members. We will hold several Mini Camps simultaneously, based out of separate sheltered areas so as to prevent larger groups from interacting. These groups will be formed according to factors such as age, experience if any, siblings and friends, etc… Social distancing guidelines will be observed! A bandana or a mask will be required for ground activities but can be lowered once on the horse. Gloves are required.
Horse Riding Programs
Seaton Hackney Stables offers riding activities including Mounted Troop Program for all levels (beginner to advanced), dressage lessons, cross country lessons, group lessons, and private lessons. For the explorers and nature lovers, trail riding is available through the adjacent Morris County Parks.
All of our programs run year-round and are highlighted with our Fall and Spring Schooling Shows and our Friday Night Show Series. Finally, horse leasing is available for our riders through our Equishare program which comes with heavily discounted riding lessons.
Summer Equestrian Riding Camp
Weekly camps run all summer until Labor Day. Half-day and full-day sessions for riders of every ability (ages 5 to 17) are available. Campers learn basic safety, equine grooming, and barn management skills. They ride 2-3 times daily, either in lessons, on trail rides, or in lungeing session.
In addition, campers receive a daily badge lesson in one of our many different programs including cart driving, equine breeds, equine health, and other exciting horsemanship topics. Our camp counselors hail from around the world and bring a fun and exciting international flair to the program, introducing a wide range of exciting activities related to their own culture.
With space limited, reserve your place now by calling or visiting our office.
Seaton Hackney offers a Flexible Camp Program any day or half-day of the year (except during Summer Camp)! For an amount equal to a couple of half-hour private lessons, participants will spend an exciting day at the Stables and ride at least twice, sometime three times throughout the day. The rest of the time will be spent learning about Barn Management matters and practicing them hands-on under the tutelage of one of our staff Instructors or Barn/Yard managers.
Drop your child at any time after the Barn opens (8am) and pick her/him up any time before closing. This is not as structured and supervised as our regular camp, so participants should be able to interact with the horses and staff with minimal supervision.
Children's Birthday PartiesHave an awesome 2 hour Birthday Party at Seaton Hackney's horse farm! Our pony and horse themed party setting is perfect for kids ages 3-10 years old. You can bring up to 20 kids. Additional fee for extra kids.
