We offer a range of horse experiences
Our horse trainers have decades of experience and can offer a range of lessons from pony rides and beginner’s horse riding to more advanced English and Western-style horse riding and jumping.
At Bear Creek Stables, we offer private and semi-private lessons daily to people of all ages. These lessons are taught by a certified and experienced horseback riding instructor.
Bear Creek Stables provides horse riding camps throughout the year, including summer break, spring break, Thanksgiving break, and winter break. Offered for children between 8 – 14 years old, these day camps are designed to build confidence in riding, create positive interactions with horses, and enjoy fun, games, and our beautiful natural environment.
