Who we are

Bill and Caroline Canavan created the overnight riding camp at New Meadow Farm in 1992, modeling it after their well-regarded day camp in suburban Philadelphia. Members of their extended family live on the farm and take care of the horses year-round, pitching in during the summer months to staff the camp and manage the farm.

Daughter of a steeplechase jockey, Caroline is the camp director and has spent most of her life teaching children and adults how to ride. Bill supervised construction of New Meadow's barn, main house, bunkhouses and outbuildings. He also coaches campers in competition.

Area professionals, international counselors, and former campers fill out the staff as instructors, counselors and household staff.


Farm manager Anita Warmington is Caroline's sister-in-law and lives, works and raises her two children at New Meadow Farm. From September to May, when camp is not in session, Anita teaches lessons, trains horses and leads guided trails in addition to looking after the horses and the property.
