Calleva’s Horse Adventure Programs (CHAPs) specialize in beginner to intermediate instruction. We offer a wide variety of programming, including:
- After School Programs
- Private Lessons
- Girl Scout Programs & Birthday Parties
- Summer Camp
- Leasing & Boarding
Advanced riders can take advantage of our wide-ranging facilities (indoor & outdoor arenas, cross country fields, and access to trails along the Potomac and C&O Canal).
Our philosophy is very holistic and hands-on. Our goals are to instill confidence while riding and understanding while caring for the horses. Students are taught to groom, muck, feed, lead, and handle our horses.
As with all Calleva programs, our teaching style is energetic and lively; and designed so the rider leaves our barn empowered and thirsty for more — Giddy-Up!
Calleva currently offers field boarding. Our Field Board includes grassy pastures, 3 rail board fencing, access to 24/7 round bale, a shelter – 4 horse maximum per field – 2 feedings a day, 2 muckings in shelter and around the round bale daily. COST: $500 per month (4lbs daily grain included)
NOTE: All horses will have a 2 week quarantine before they are allowed into the fields with other horses. We require all horses to be up to date with vaccinations and dewormers, as well as provide proof of negative Coggins. Contact: Megan@calleva.org

Girl Scout Programs
Girl scout programs run on Saturday & Sunday afternoons. The program is 3 hours long. Scouts enjoy a rotation between a riding lesson and an unmounted lesson — a hands-on approach about a horse related topic.
Scouts participate in barn chores to wrap-up which allows them to appreciate the full experience of a day at the barn!

Birthday Parties run on Saturday & Sunday afternoons. This 2-hour long program rotates between a riding lesson and a craft or horse related activity. Indoor room and fridge available for party hosts.
