Horses

Horse riding offers mastery and a sense of adventure to horse campers of all skill levels. Campers enjoy a variety of experiences with our professional instructors and well-trained horses.

Classes are geared to all levels and include practice in our rings as well as rides on HVC’s  open fields and extensive forested trails. We provide helmets and other gear; campers need only bring boots with a heel.

When Max got off the plane, he said he was "privileged" to have such great riding instructors! He's really into riding now.  - HVC Parent

I will never forget the joy of my time in the "riding cabin", spending endless hours with the beloved horses, or the bonfires under the big sky, crying my eyes out singing "Leavin' on a Jet Plane."  - Former HVC Camper
