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.

Winter Riding Policy

Winter weather has arrived! This is a reminder of our winter riding policy. If schools and buses are cancelled, that doesn't automatically mean that lessons are cancelled. We are here at the farm and will do all that we can to make sure lessons go on as planned. If we have to cancel lessons, we will let the riders know by 3pm. If you feel you cannot make it here safely, please let us know as soon as possible.
