Whitchurch Riding Academy is the longest running equestrian academy & summer riding camp in the GTA, with qualified instructors accredited by the OCA & OEF. We teach English riding from beginner to advanced, with a hands-on approach to horsemanship. Facilities include indoor & outdoor rings on 10 rolling acres, in-ground pool with certified lifeguard, arts & crafts barn, plus 24 horses! Daily busing is available from 5 stops in Toronto & York Region.

Free tours of facilities are available during spring open house dates, or email us to arrange a visit!  Secure summer camp registration can be completed online from our website.

Trust WRA for a positive learning experience. There is a difference!

Beginner Riders

Campers start their one-hour formal English-Riding lessons with leaders, soon mastering the basic skills of riding on their own in a safe environment. With a focus on safety, additional hands-on horsemanship activities include grooming, tacking, feeding, and horse care.  Rounding out a full day is a supervised recreational swim in our in-ground pool, plus horsemanship games, fun rides, singsongs, and arts & craft activities!

Intermediate & Advanced Riders

Experienced riders are challenged with advanced horsemanship activities that include nutrition, show grooming, basic first aid for horses, and much more! Equestrian disciplines include dressage, jumping, mounted games, and musical rides.

A Second Lesson?

Experienced Riders (those able to canter comfortably), may sign up for a second lesson each day, although most find that one full lesson along with the rest of our busy equestrian schedule is plenty! (additional fee applies).


Qualified riding instructors are certified in First Aid & CPR, and horses are fully schooled to ensure your child's safety. A certified NLS lifeguard is at the pool at all times. For daily busing from Toronto & York Region, a certified school bus & driver are used. We are fully accredited by the Ontario Camps Association & Ontario Equestrian Federation.

Session Discounts

Did you know that you can save by advance booking multiple sessions, or by booking additional family members? Save 5% when you book two sessions, or 10% when you book three sessions!  Register securely online from our website!

Don't Forget!

Pack a lunch and snack (no nuts), and bring plenty of fluids. Campers will need a hat, protective sun lotion, swimsuit, and long pants for riding. An approved ASTM/SEI riding helmet is mandatory, and can be rented. Boots with a heel and smooth sole are required for riding (rain boots work fine).  We email a list of reminders on the Wednesday before camp.

Risk Awareness Form

A Risk Awareness Form is included with the online registration form. Please read carefully. The form must be completed and signed by the legal Parent/Guardian for each camper attending camp.
