One of New England’s premier horseback riding programs
Our two spacious stables can accommodate up to 28 horses and ponies that all live in box stalls. Nashoba Day takes pride in our prized horses and ponies who return to camp each summer. They are known for their dependability, suitability and calm manners. The riding program focuses on hunt seat equitation and the balance seat style of English riding. Riders may chose to ride either one or two hours a day and have a third hour at the stable for a hands-on horsemanship lecture. Our talented equestrian staff can teach beginners learning to steer through advanced riders that compete at the jumping level. All lessons are scheduled according to ability.
Nashoba’s hands-on stable management program allows riders to learn all about horses, including: grooming, feeding, conditioning, saddling, bridling, ailments/illnesses, conformation, first aid and much more. Classes are small, personalized and interactive.
