You have an amazing camp program and my daughter had a fabulous time. She can't wait to come back next summer.

Not only have you provided great memories for her, you provided me with peace of mind with all your safety protocols. Not once did I worry about her while she was attending your camp. I will be highly recommending your program to all my friends.

After an absence of 20 years I decided to return to

riding in my mid-forties, and was very nervous after such a long break.

At Whitchurch Riding Academy,

I found a safe, challenging environment to renew and advance my skills, plus a warm and welcoming community of riders.

We had an absolute lovely time last night. In my 35 years riding I have to say I’ve never seen a schooling barn so clean, with such incredible well taken horses and the instructor was very professional!

WRA is a haven just north of the city.  Beautiful farm, wonderful instructors, and horses you easily fall in love with.  It's the best part of my week!

We wanted to pass on our thanks to you and your staff for the great visit today at riding camp.

It was terrific to see how smoothly everyone worked together and we were amazed with how well our daughter Georgia was doing!

Your counselor, Jaime, was a pleasure to meet, and she and Georgia have a lovely connection. We appreciate the opportunity to visit.

Thanks again.

Thank you so much for an amazing two weeks at Whitchurch Riding Camp.  I only started riding this summer and it was a great experience.

I love being around horses and the staff were so nice that it was truly enjoyable. This is something I will remember forever.  Being in the advanced group for the second week made me work hard and taught me how to care for my horse. You do an amazing job with the horses and I thank you for letting me be a part of this camp.

I was totally impressed with the comfort the girls  demonstrated around the horses and the skills they had in controlling their movement.

The girls have completely enjoyed their experience this week at Whitchurch Riding Camp.

I'm sure they'll ask to return next summer.
