Lesson Programs include:
This program is designed for children ages 4 - 6 years old, introducing them to ponies and riding. Our goal is to help children at an early age learn sound basics in safety, care and riding, and the joy that comes with spending time with horses & ponies.
Young children have a shorter attention span, so lessons run approximately 30 minutes, and are taught one-on-one only.
This class is for beginner riders of ANY age, covering the first steps of horsemanship and riding basics, including instruction on safety in handling horses, grooming, tacking and care.
REGULAR LESSON PROGRAM:
Consisting of 1 - 6 riders, Classes are designed to fit the level, needs, abilities and goals of each rider.
