Chestnut Ridge offers year-round riding including:
Horseback riding summer camp
After school riding lessons
Trail rides for families and groups
Birthday Parties with the horses
It is time to build quality facilities that match the quality of the equestrian programs at Chestnut Ridge.
The Equestrian Center will include:
A 90x200 covered arena to provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain so that riding can continue in inclement weather.
Professional, efficient office and tack room to increase staff effectiveness and stewardship.
Arena lighting so that riding can continue during Daylight Savings time.
Meeting & classroom space.
Why This Matters
A Gathering Place
The new Equestrian Center will provide a gathering place for people to engage with these incredible animals.
The Equestrian Center will be a place where the horses teach, touch lives, and help campers and guests grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
The Equestrian Center matters because it will
Make the love of Christ visible to even more campers and guests through expanded programming.
Provide a place of healing through new Equine Assisted Learning and Growth, and Equine Therapy programs.
Create quality facilities to match the quality programming, allowing for recruitment and retention of quality staff, quality care for horses and tack, and long-term sustainability for the program.
Together we will make it happen
These new facilities will positively impact every ministry program at Chestnut Ridge.
