SUMMER PROGRAMS 2024          


Summer with the Horses    

Ride | Care for Animals | Create | Connect | Play


Summer with the Horses is hosted by expert horse trainer & riding instructor Lotte Swauger and Waldorf teachers Sushila Wood and Heather Ofitserov. From 9am-1pm we welcome beginners on lead up to riders who are cantering. We also welcome JR Counselors ages 9+ for a longer day, 9am-3pm.


Each day our rhythm provides a framework for confidence, learning and fun - we feed the animals, gather in circle and connect through games and ranch chores, then prepare to ride. Everyone learns to groom, tack their mount and ride daily. While some of the group ride, others have time to build deep connections and tap into their creativity, working on their craft projects for the week.

CHOOSE two, three or five days per session, below.

Hunter & Jumper


We will explore the three phases of eventing: dressage, stadium jumping and cross country. Riders will ride daily, and focus on the details of succeeding at this challenging sport, including cleaning tack, grooming, bathing, braiding and pacing their ride.

Mini Pony Adventures

Mini Pony Adventures


A two day or weekly summer experience for younger children (ages 2-7), we gather in circle, play games to connect and encourage safety, then work together to care for the ponies. We learn to groom, tack and ride among the orchards and pepper trees, with a lead.
