What can NSEC offer you?
Public Riding Lessons
From September to June NSEC offers weekly English Discipline Private, Semi-Private and Group lessons. Starting at 8 years old, lessons are 45 minutes long and are taught by one of our experienced coaches. Students only require a boot with a defined heel and a certifed riding helmet we provide everything else! For more information on our rates and program commitment policies, please visit our Lesson page.
During the summer months of July and August, NSEC offers week-long, half-day summer camps at various levels for children ages 7 and up. Whether riders have never ridden before or have been taking lessons regularly, we have camps suited for all levels of experience. Registration for summer camps opens every April. Level descriptions and registration forms can be found on our Summer Camp page.
A unique experience for children who are too young to enter our lesson program but are already in love with horses. Play Dates can be set up for children starting at 4 years old. Participants get to help groom, tack up and get to take a 5 min hand led ride on their horse in our ring all under the watchful supervision of one of our trained instructors. Information on how to set up a Play Date can be found on our Play Date Page.
Our therapeutic program is currently on hiatus until further notice. To get more information or get on our waitlist for this specialized program, please visit our Therapeutic Program page.
Hunter, Jumper & Dressage Programs
Specialized Hunter, Jumper or Dressage training programs are available to those riders who own a horse or lease a horse at NSEC. Taught by one of our EC Certified Competition Level coaches, programs are customized to focus on each riders individual goals and needs, with options to enter the local show circuit at such shows as Thunderbird, Maple Ridge and Milner Downs during the summer show season. For rates and more information on these programs please see our Boarder/Leaser Programs page.
NSEC offers quarter, half and full leases to riders who are ready to make the move from our Public Lesson Program to our Specialized Hunter, Jumper and Dressage programs. Riders are matched with horses that are currently available for lease to make sure that both rider and horse get the most out of their lessons and leases.
