We offer both western and English disciplines of horseback riding lessons to students of all ages and experience levels. Whether you are just starting to learn to ride or are mastering the finer points, our horses and instructors will help you to hone your skills. We offer a pleasant and friendly atmosphere and cater to families and children. Lessons are available in half-hour or hour-long sessions six days a week, Monday through Saturday.

Summer Camp

Whitney Ridge's annual summer riding camp is a great way for horse-loving kids (ages 5-13) to spend the summer!

Summer is on its way and so is WRS's Summer Riding Camp. Available in weekly sessions, the camp is open to children ages 5-13 of any experience level. Small groups ensure that each child receives personal attention and plenty of riding time. Campers learn riding, horse care, and grooming. They also spend time out of the saddle doing arts and crafts, playing games, hiking, and learning the parts of the horse and tack. The week culminates with a horse show held on the premises for campers to demonstrate their skills (ribbons go to all).
