Facilities & Horses

Facilities

Madeira’s riding facilities make it possible for girls to ride rain or shine, after school and during the day, depending on a girl’s academic schedule. Madeira has its own herd of school horses. Girls may also board a horse of their own for an additional fee. Facilities include:

  • a 30-stall courtyard stable
  • all stalls well ventilated with Dutch doors 
  • two outdoor riding rings  
  • one large indoor ring 
  • updated paddocks with two all-weather turn out spaces 
  • miles of scenic trails
  • space for boarded horses (non-students, $1,150/month; student boarders, $1,000/month)

Horses

At Madeira, we consider our horses to be an integral part of the community. Madeira girls form strong bonds with these beautiful animals. Care of the horses is top priority and a strong part of the curriculum. Students learn to prioritize the welfare of the horse and develop strong stable management skills in addition to empathy and compassion for their equine partners.
