At the Savage Riding Academy, we strive to be more than just a traditional horseback riding barn. Our mission is to be a community resource which offers a wide variety of programs that promote education, health, and well-being for the citizens of Goshen and Elkhart County. Stay tuned as programs continue to develop and roll out, and get in touch if you have an idea of how we could better our community, or would like to partner with us to make any of these services a reality!
Community Programming Available
Come join us for a week of equine education and activities! Several camp options are available to accommodate both beginner and intermediate riders, as well as add-on trips to existing local camps.
Give the gift of riding to that special horse-crazy someone in your life! Our parties are filled with a variety of games and activities, and are available year round, so whether you have a birthday, family reunion, or any other occasion, we can help!
We offer Indiana State Standards based field trips on Plant and Animal Development, Adaptations, and Survival Needs, as well as custom programs tailored to your needs. We can also travel to you with our pint-sized farm crew to be a one-of-a-kind guest speaker!
We are partnering with local schools, libraries, and bookstores to promote literacy enthusiasm about literacy! We run a Summer Challenge for our lesson students, School Year programs for at-risk youth, and are available for hire for festivals and events.
