Proctor supports a competitive fall riding program for all levels of rider. Our team is affiliated with a local barn, Seery Hill, which provides qualified instructors and horses, which most of the students use for our lessons. The farm is located near Proctor on Bradley Lake, and includes an indoor riding ring and a large scenic outdoor ring for use in fair weather.
Instruction at Seery Hill is primarily hunt seat. We have lessons four days per week, a work day at the barn, and on Saturdays we participate in horse-related activities. Students groom and tack the horses they ride and clean up after themselves. They are expected to help out with daily chores such as feeding, watering, and sweeping when they finish riding. Students who board their horses at Seery Hill can be assured of quality care with daily turnout and careful diet control.
Proctor graduates have competed at the upper levels of eventing and horse showing, and recent graduates also teach horsemanship and work with young animals at training barns. Mary Drueding, who owns and operates Seery Hill, has coached championship teams at the collegiate level for Colby-Sawyer and presently coaches at St. Lawrence in the winter. She coaches local hunter competitors out of Seery Hill throughout the summer.
We are proud to offer a fine riding program at Proctor!
