Mini/JR Rider

Participants: Children Ages 4 - 7

Pricing: $510

Duration: 6 weeks

 The goal of this program is to give young children a safe introduction to horses. Students in this program are required to have a parent lead the horse while they ride (don't worry, we'll teach you how!). While riding they learn basics like mounting/dismounting, halt, walk, trot, steering and basic patterns of the ring as well as playing lots of games! Lessons are 1 hour long.

Horse Camps
