DAY OF HORSES
Celebrate your students’ love of horseback riding by taking a day to learn the fundamentals. This five hour program begins with an interactive talk on horse safety and care. Our experienced instructors will then assist the students in grooming, saddling, and bridling their own horses. Students will spend the rest of the day in the arena on horseback learning the basics of western riding: mounting, dismounting, proper posture, communication, control, and safe riding habits. The day includes a half hour lunch break. We will supply a campfire at no charge if you wish; students are responsible to bring their own lunches. (Don’t forget the roasting sticks!) Available from September through May, Tuesday through Friday between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Please call at least two weeks in advance to make a reservation. Credit card number or deposit is necessary to hold the reservation. Minimum of 4 students required. Cost: 4-10 students $65/person, 10-14 students $60/person.
We have a variety of activities for students. We can adapt any of our regular activities (trail rides, pony rides, hayrides, etc.) to fit the size and needs of your group. We also offer the following programs specifically designed for school groups:
We offer a complementary campfire in conjunction with your activity. There are picnic tables for students to enjoy their lunches or snacks around. We are happy to tailor an activity to fit the size and needs of your group. Please call at least two weeks in advance to schedule your activity. Deposits or credit cards are required to hold a reservation. Pony riders are required to wear helmets. You may bring your own or rent ours for $2 each. Riding helmets are required for trail riders under the age of 18 and are provided by us at no additional charge.
Plan an exciting outing for your daycare group with hand led rides on our gentle, well trained ponies! During warm weather months, an adult leads the pony on a shaded continuous loop path. For winter months, you may take the ride indoors in our spacious arena to get out of the wind and snow. You need to supply one leader per pony (up to four ponies) and adequate supervision for the children not riding. Included with the daycare program is the use of the indoor community room with picnic tables for snacks or activities. Call for pricing and availability.
We offer a variety of clinics, including trail guiding, riding instructing, harnessing and driving, and specialty clinics. We may occasionally have special guest instructors, so check our web site for times and dates. If you have questions, or would like to join a clinic, please call or email us.
