 Our offerings included

  • Birthday Lesson: We can arrange a special birthday for your young rider.
  • Private Lessons:  We offer lessons for children as young as two years of age in a safe, encouraging, fun environment. Some classes require parent participation, and others give kids the change to spend the day at the barn with our horses and riding instructors. 
  • Semi-Private Lessons: We offer lessons for small groups of riders as well.
  • Mommy (or Daddy) and Me and Pony Makes Three: A one-time Saturday lesson for child and parent/guardian. Accompanied by their parent or guardian, children ride horses, brush them, and feed carrots to our gentle ponies. We all learn to sit tall in the saddle. Be sure to wear close-toed shoes. We provide the safety helmets.
