Campers are matched up with one of the farm’s school horses or ponies and learn to care for their equine partner while getting to know other “horse-loving” kids. The riding portion of camp is carefully tailored to each camper’s riding ability in a group setting. All beginners start safely on a lead line with an experienced counselor.

Lisa Palker
As a Chase Farms riding instructor and assistant horse trainer, horse back riding has been a life long passion of Lisa’s.

She started with Chase Farms as a horse show mom and horse owner which quickly turned into a shared love and sport between her and her daughter Abbie. After years of supporting her daughter and showing herself, Lisa decided horses would become a bigger part of her life.

As mom of six, Lisa is the perfect match for teaching mommy and me, tiny tots and siblings to ride together or alone. She brings knowledge to her lessons from a horse show moms perspective which is hard to find in riding programs today. Lisa also excels in preparing riders to move from privates lessons to small group lessons while providing confidence and assisting her riders to achieve their goals.
