  • Fall 2016 Volunteer Training

    Our volunteer program continues to be a great opportunity for young riders who love horses to deepen their knowledge and understanding of horsemanship, assist others, and defray the cost of riding. Certification classes will be held over seven weeks (RATS) nine weeks (CATS) running 1.5 hours long. Classes offered as needed. Please let the instructor know if you will miss a session to arrange a make-up. ALL sessions are mandatory; missed sessions must be made up by booking a make-up class which may incur an additional cost.

  • Valley Brook Equestrian Center

    Seaton Hackney Stables’ new big “little sister”, Valley Brook Equestrian Center, boasts seventy five spacious 10’ x 11’ box stalls, a small indoor arena (which we plan to enlarge), a 2/3 mile oval stone dust track perfect for exercising, interval training and harness driving, and we are setting up a total of five riding rings: Beginners, Flat Work, a 200’ x 60’ Dressage ring, a Hunt Course ring and the Indoor arena. These will ensure that riders of different levels and interests can enjoy their riding with minimal interference.

  • 2016 Summer TROOP & PEP

    The 2016 Summer Troop & PEP is an 8-week Session starting the week of June 20th. Troop is geared to offer motivated equestrians, interested in acquiring or improving their horsemanship and horseback riding skills, a forum to get involved in a structured program in a supportive atmosphere. Troop is an important component of the Riding Learning Pie as it allows riders to observe their peers and learn from the Instructors observations.

    THE PEP (Troup and regular PEP) are designed as introductory programs for young aspiring Equestrians who do not yet have acquired the skills and physical abilities to control their own horses. We start the children in PEP and, after participating in this fun-filled program for a few times, they are encouraged to either take 30 minutes private lessons or join our special PEP Troop.
