Maura Pratt

Instructor

Hello! My name is Maura Pratt and I have been working with the Calleva horseback riding programs (CHAPS) for over 5 years. I grew up in NJ and surrounded myself with all things 'horsey', including caring for, riding and showing horses my entire childhood. I would spend hours at the barn each week, 'mucking' stalls in exchange for riding privileges and lessons. When I wasn't at the barn, I delighted in hiking with my family, boating, fishing, swimming, and camping. I have vivid memories of camping in Vermont, sleeping in a flooded tent, and making S'mores around the campfire while sneaking marshmallows to the resident raccoon (a definite no-no!)

In my adulthood, I enjoy passing that same knowledge and enthusiasm for horses, animals, and all-things-outdoors to future generations, including my six children who have all participated in Calleva activities for the past 20 years!
