Welcome to Hampton Riding Centre

Premier riding school in Atlantic Canada

Hampton Riding Centre is located in Smithtown, New Brunswick – just outside of Hampton and about 1/2 hour from Saint John. Owned and operated by Equine Canada Certified Coach Jennifer Hanson. Many events are held every year for youth and adults, from fun schooling shows, to clinics with some of the country’s top equestrian athletes and coaches. We are also home to the Hampton Pony Club, which caters to horse crazy kids ages 9-25.
