Ride N’ Splash Horseback Riding Summer Half-Day Program at
The Guilford Riding School
575 Clapboard Hill Road
Guilford, CT  06437

The Guilford Riding School is a traditional, English-style riding stable with a modern philosophy — anyone can learn to ride our quality school horses and enjoy all of the activities we offer without hidden additional costs.

Summer is a bit different at The Guilford Riding School. Our calendar changes to include our fabulous 2020 Ride n’ Splash Half-Day Program, for children age 8-14, and runs weekly from late June through August. Morning sessions begin at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. and afternoon sessions begin at 1 p.m. and end at 5 p.m. We also have a Mini-Might week for ages 6, 7 or 8 in August.

The summer curriculum includes a barn seminar in grooming, tacking and horse care. Campers groom and tack their favorite horse, take a fun and challenging riding lesson and end the day with a cool-off swim in our in-ground pool.


Absolute Beginner Weeks: If your camper has never ridden and would like to start from scratch, we have several weeks set aside. They'll get extra attention on our oldest and quietest horses and learn to groom, tack and ride with confidence and control.
