Hunter Jumper Equitation
Van Aken Stables is located on 13 beautiful acres in Batavia, IL. We are focused on providing a warm and supportive learning environment and the best possible care for your horse.
Laura brings her lifelong passion for the hunter jumper horse to Van Aken Stables. Like so many of us she started riding in a local lesson program as a child and has been riding ever since. Laura believes focusing on the basics of good horsemanship is what makes a successful partnership and she enjoys sharing that with her students.
Cami comes to the Hunter Jumper world after many years on the AQHA circuit.. "Over the last several years I have come to see so many things that the hunter jumpers get right and so many things that quarter horse people get right. I am determined to combine the two and for Van Aken Stables to be the best of both worlds". Cami is still active on the AQHA Show Circuit as an Amateur and has begun dabbling in the Hunters. After keeping her horses in various training and boarding barns owning Van Aken Stables is a lifelong dream come true. "Top notch horse care has always been my priority with my own horses. I want my clients to feel that we care for their horses as if were our own."
We offer beginning to advanced Hunter/Jumper lessons. We see you and your horse as a unique team and each lesson as an opportunity to develop your riding and horsemanship skills. Let us help you reach your personal goals.
Nothing compares to having a professional further your horse's education. Are you looking to give your horse more experience under saddle, build additional skills or confidence? Do you need help with a trouble spot? We can do that!
You want nothing but the best for your horse and want to give them the quality of life they deserve. The beauty of our barn begins with our open and light stall design to promote a healthy social environment. Horses are then turned out in small groups or individually as appropriate. Private turnout is available when needed. We feed hay 4x per day so your horse is never without forage the way nature intended. We do night checks to cap off our premium level of care.
