Horseback Riding


Are you ready to start “horsin’ around?” Camp is the summer home to 14 horses – who all seem to earn a place in the heart of someone each summer. The riding director and her capable staff work to ensure a safe and quality environment for equestrian instruction, from novice to advanced skills.


Program Details

The option of signing up for three hours per week of horseback riding is included in your camp tuition. Enjoy trail rides through the Nicolet National Forest. Learn new skills in one of our three instructional rings. Participate in a riding gymkhana (games on horseback), or showcase your skills in the annual horse show at the conclusion of the summer.



Horseback riding lessons are available to all campers who choose to take them and are included in the base tuition for all sessions (three lessons/week). We do offer an additional option if your camper would like to take an additional three lessons, which would be a total of six lessons per week. All skill levels are accepted. So if you think you would like to “horse around” more frequently, check this out.

Equestrian Facility

If you love horses, you’ll love hanging out at the Nicolet Equestrian Center. Are you ready to make some new four-legged friends? Horses are beautiful creatures that add strength and grace to any environment, especially when they are well cared for. Stable management is also part of this amazing program.


Annual Horseshow

Camp Nicolet’s annual horse show gives campers an opportunity to proudly demonstrate their newly acquired riding skills.

“The fact that you are able to slow these girls down, detach them from their electronics, and show them all that Nicolet has to offer is amazing to me and very lucky for them. You have not only kept the very special legacy of Nicolet going, but you have added to and changed camp in such a way that you have kept it relevant to this next generation. Thank you for that.” – Camp Nicolet Parent/Alumna
