HUNT SEAT Equitation is taught under CHA professional instruction, as are all Valley View riding programs. Hunt Club has a separate riding ring and barn, and specially schooled lesson horses available to all girls, beginner to advanced. Classes are arranged according to riding ability and incorporated into her daily ranch program. Beginners learn to post first, and then move on to ground poles and cavalettis. As a rider gains confidence, she will practice equitation over fences in the ring. We have a “cross country” jumping course in the front field for riders who are advanced enough to move beyond the arena. For those who enjoy riding outside of the arena, we have a special “hunt trail” out in the woods, with natural log and rock jumps to explore. Campers also have an option to bring their own horse and enjoy a new companionship amid our mountain scenery.
