Introduction to Horsemanship:
This class is required for all new students. It covers basic horsemanship skills including safety, grooming, tacking, and basic riding skills, thus building a foundation for our continuing riding program.

Little Riders Introduction to Horsemanship:
Is your child in love with ponies? Do they want to learn to ride? This program is the perfect place for them to begin to get involved in the wonderful world of ponies and horses. Children ages 4-6 will learn to be comfortable with our little four-legged friends and be introduced to basics of riding and working around our ponies.
