Equestrian Center

The Equestrian Center at YMCA Camp Y-Noah is a year-round riding facility for youth and adults situated on over 250 beautiful acres. We take pride in offering programs year round with over 25 horses owned by the YMCA that live on site. No matter your riding experience, our skilled instructors will challenge you.

We believe the sport of equestrian teaches responsibility,compassion, work ethic, self confidence, patience, and assertiveness. That sounds like a lot to take away from a horseback riding lesson but that is how powerful the horse can be in someone’s life. It is a lifelong learning experience, from toddlers to those well into their senior years.

Come out and visit us at the ranch and you'll meet equestrian staff who are as good with people as they are with horses.

Riding Lessons are available year-round in 6 and 8 week sessions in our indoor and outdoor riding arenas from beginner to advanced level riders in both English and Western riding styles.

Trail Rides  

Couples, families, or groups, are you looking for a fun day on the trail? YMCA Camp Y-Noah is the place for you. Our guided western style trail rides are for adults and children at least eight years old. Trails wind through miles of beautiful terrain that extend across over 250 wooded acres of YMCA Camp Y-Noah. We have trails suitable for all types of riders.  


Day and Overnight Camps are geared towards young horse enthusiasts who want to benefit from daily, intensive lessons each summer.

Scout Badges  

Here at YMCA Camp Y-Noah we have developed a program specifically designed to help Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts earn their merit badges. These programs are available year round, rain or shine.

All scout programs are taught by our qualified friendly staff. Our programs will allow your group to earn their animal care and horsemanship merit badges. Even if it rains, your experience is never hindered:we’ll ride in our spacious indoor riding arena. When you choose Camp Y-Noah for your scout event, be assured that you’re getting the best experience for your investment. 

Birthday Parties

Do you have an inspiring equestrian in your family….maybe rough and tumble cowboy? Our guided trail rides will make for a memorable birthday party experience. Our horses are selected for their calm disposition and kind demeanor; so they are kid friendly.  No riding experience is necessary.

The Teen Saddle Club is for teens who love horses! This is a volunteer opportunity for those who can't get enough. The club helps with weekend programming, help clean the barn and even help fundraisers. We teach safety and keep them busy while they are having fun with the horses. Participants must be at least 11 years of age and have completed the volunteer application.  If you are interested, please email heatherl@akronymca.org or call 330-896-1964 and talk with the equestrian staff.
