Many campers, as they become more confident riders, would like to fine-tune their skills and participate in local horse shows. Stony Hill's excellent school horses and ponies are available for half-lease to campers who'd like to ride the same horse or pony in their camp lessons. Also, any camper who plans to participate in outside shows during the summer must half-lease for the two weeks leading up to shows. In 2023, we're planning a busy schedule of showing, and another exciting Stony Hill Schooling show as well. We’ll be happy to discuss the perfect half lease for your camper!


Half leases are available on Stony Hill school horses for riders in the lesson program riding 3 days per week or more, in private, semi-private or group lessons. Riders who plan to show are required to half lease two weeks prior to the show they wish to attend. Riders who want to take their riding to a new level are encouraged to half lease; consistency helps a rider grow immensely. Options to hack your half leased horse are available to riders with enough skill to ride safely on their own.


Full leasing options are available year-round or for shorter terms for riders who want to show competitively or learn to ride at a high level. Stony Hill trainers utilize their years of experience and connections in the horse industry to bring in top ponies and horses for the competitive rider. Our team atmosphere is excellent for riders to have support from their peers and trainers as they work hard to meet their own personal riding goals. Riders have access to top trainers for clinics, both local and away shows, 5 arenas, hacking off property and more.
