DuBois Center has a long-standing equestrian program. Our goal is to help people of all ages and abilities learn about and enjoy nature through horses. Guests can build self-confidence and learn new skills working with horses.
Our programs run year-round and we welcome all groups: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, families, churches groups, schools, and more. We provide basic training for riders before going out on the trails. Safety and fun are our priorities.
We currently have a herd of 20 well trained horses. We have horses for all abilities. Our horses are ambassadors for DuBois Center and participate in local parades.
Home to our herd of horses. The barn was built in the '70s and has been upgraded in the last few years with new stalls, concrete aisles, tack room, and a new roof. Near the barn is the horses' main pasture and woods where they spend their time when they aren't working.
Trails and Arena
DuBois has many beautiful trails through-out the property. Our trail rides go through the woods and along the lakes.
Our horses are involved in most of the activities here at DuBois:
All campers have the opportunity to ride during their camps. Our horse camps allow campers to focus on horse care, riding skills, and provide more riding time.
The equestrian unit of Nature's Classroom allows students to learn about horses including caring, feeding, and riding. Weather permiting, classes also get to go out on a trail ride.
Conference and Retreats
Trail rides are provided for many of our Conferences and Retreats. Two horse retreats are held each year.
