Welcome, to

ISOLA Riding Academy

Horsemanship Camp!

Make some wonderful memories at Isola Riding Academy Horsemanship Workshops.

Students will learn to ride in a fun and safe environment as they receive comprehensive riding and horsemanship lessons. Our instructors are knowledgeable and positive, and our beloved school horses are gentle, well trained and perfect for building confidence. 


Dates Coming Soon!


What you will need

  • A signed release form is required for each student.

  • Please have students wear long pants to protect their legs. Avoid pants with slippery material like leggings. Jeans are recommended. Shirts and tops to protect you from the sun are also recommended.

  • Please bring a mask for when the rider is in a small group. Your child will NOT ride with it on.

  • Please send with your child, a bottle of water, a packed lunch, and sunscreen. Snacks will be provided.

  • A solid shoe with a small heel is needed. We do have several riding boots available but can’t guarantee a fit for all.

  • If it gets hot, the students can cool off in the sprinklers. You can provide a change of clothes if you like.

As soon as you go through the entrance you can park your car in the lot. The gate code is 0001#. The code is posted on the keypad. The way to Isola Riding Academy will be through the parking lot, past the barn down the path then across the bridge.


To do our part in keeping everyone socially distanced, we will be meeting down below at the Academy site, instead of the top office. That way we are outdoors the entire time. There are two full bathrooms at the top barn if you would like to use them. We also have a new hand-washing station in the cross-tie area.
