Bill and Caroline Canavan created the overnight riding camp at New Meadow Farm in 1992, and modeled it after their well-regarded day camp in suburban Philadelphia. Daughter of a steeplechase jockey and horse trainer, Caroline is the camp director. She has spent most of her life teaching children and adults how to ride. Bill started with horses in his teenage years. He has coached numerous students in a variety of competitions.
Farm manager, Anita Warmington grew up in Philadelphia riding & training horses with Caroline since she was a child. Anita lives, works and raises her two children at New Meadow Farm. During camp, Anita teaches lessons and makes the best dinners. When camp is not in session, Anita teaches lessons, trains horses, and manages the facility.
Colin Warmington is Caroline's brother and head of maintenance at the farm. He grew up riding horses with Caroline and their other siblings. You will often see him out on the tractor or helping with evening trail rides, and in a pinch he's a great cook.
