Girls from all over the country and all over the world participate in the Stoneleigh-Burnham Riding Program. Whether first time riders, or national competitors there is a place for everyone. Students may ride one of the 30 horses stabled on campus, or bring one of their own to fill one of the 60 stalls. Riders participate in many of the monthly on-campus competitions as well as a number of rated and schooling shows in the northeast and as far away as the Ocala, Florida Hits Series. Three riding instructors offer instruction in Dressage, Eventing, Hunt-Seat Equitation, Hunters and Jumpers.
In the fall and spring, students may participate in scheduled outdoor weekend activities offered by the Outdoor Education program. Some of the outings are overnight camping, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, white-water rafting, and canoe trips. The school maintains sites in the woods for overnight camping.
