Instruction

SRE is staffed by the same team that runs the School's equestrian program. All are second and third generation horsewomen who are seasoned competitors and trainers. SRE campers of all ability levels are coached by the Walker's team to become more complete equestrians, whether they are getting on a horse for the first time or are already accomplished riders. Additionally, girls from Walker's equestrian team assist with SRE, giving campers a glimpse into the spirit and camaraderie of the School's riding program. 


Newly renovated barnOur Facilities

Situated on the School's scenic campus, the Walker's equestrian center includes a newly renovated barn, outdoor rings, an indoor ring with dust-free footing and newly upgraded lighting, four tack rooms, extensive turnouts for the horses and over 300 acres of trails through the woods.
 

Our Horses

Girls can either ride one of the School's horses or board their own. We have wonderful horses for riders of all levels. Girls are paired with horses best suited to their ability.
 

Proper Attire

Girls will need to bring to following for lessons: riding breeches or jeans, comfortable t-shirts, boots with a 1/2 inch heels, and an ASTM-approved riding helmet.
 

Residential Program

We have a rich residential program that is based on our academic year program, designed to foster community, lifelong friendships and help each girl feel comfortable. Our dining hall serves healthy meals during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Meals are a time for the entire summer community to come together, including girls participating in other summer programs. Evening activities include movie nights, game nights, trips into the local community, and swimming.
