At Nashoba North we pride ourselves on providing a wonderful summer riding experience by offering quality lessons to all levels of young riders with a strong emphasis placed on developing their horsemanship skills. Our two spacious stables can accommodate up to 28 horses and ponies that all live in box stalls. Nashoba North riders enjoy our prized and well-mannered horses and ponies who return to camp each summer. They are known for their dependability, suitability and calm manners.
Unlike most programs, we own all our horses and ponies. 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.
“My daughter attended Camp Nashoba North for 5 summers. For our family, the experience was fantastic. CNN fosters a supportive environment for campers to try new activities and a chance to excel at the ones they like. It encourages communication skills and independence that enriches their adventures and further allows them to make lifelong friends. As a USEF Judge and Horse Trainer, I have always been impressed with the camp’s comprehensive riding program. The campers have access to many quality lesson horses and ponies and the counselor’s create interactive lesson plans coupled with an important emphasis on stable management and horse care. CNN is indeed a magical way to spend the summer!”
– Andrea Wells, USEF Judge
